Description: [Organizer: Prof Joaquim Jorge] This workshop explores two of the hottest areas in computing right now; Artificial Intelligence, and Virtual Reality, and especially their combination.

Thanks to an explosion of affordable yet powerful displays and mobile phones, Virtual and Augmented Reality have become household terms. Over a billion people now have devices in the home or in their pockets that can run AR or VR applications. Yet, providing rich and enticing user experiences still poses major challenges.

Envisioning exciting applications is driving a convergence between advanced Computer Graphics and other research communities which have been traditionally separate — namely Artificial Intelligence and Extended Reality. Combining intelligent techniques, user interfaces and tools, embodied or not, together with effective, realistic and real-time visualization and multimodal interaction is giving rise to new areas in entertainment, engineering, medical, education and other domains.

The purpose of this workshop is to explore these novel realms, discuss the major research challenges they pose and explore interdisciplinary approaches to tackle them, towards a research and development agenda for the future.
