Call: 2020 XR Access Symposium

Call for Participation

Announcing the 2020 XR Access Symposium
July 20-21, 2020 | Virtual Event

Cornell Tech and the XR Access Initiative are pleased to announce the 2020 XR Access Symposium! This will be held virtually on July 20 and 21, 2020. If you’re interested in virtual or augmented reality or accessibility, keep reading!

At the first Symposium, organized by Cornell Tech and Verizon Media in Summer 2019, over 120 researchers, technologists, advocates, and industry leaders gathered for talks, demos, and working group sessions that generated actionable plans for making XR more accessible. For the past year, that’s been our mission: to ensure that as XR technologies become more pervasive in our work, school, and social lives, they’ll be designed and developed to be accessible by and for people with disabilities.

At the 2020 XR Access Symposium, we’ll review the community’s progress over the past year, highlight the latest advancements in XR accessibility research, and lay out concrete steps we can all take toward a more accessible future.

We’re planning a series of virtual talks, tech demos, and breakout sessions for working groups and researchers, spread over two days. We’re also excited to welcome research presentations from the XR Access Workshop at IMX 2020 to the Symposium. Other speakers and an agenda will be announced over the coming months, so keep checking back for the latest updates.

The 2020 Symposium will be held entirely online. If you’re interested in attending, please fill out the form on our website to receive updates about how to participate.
