The International XR Conference is an annual immersive tech event of the International Association of Immersive Technology Innovation (IAITI) and it aims to bring industry and academia together in order to discuss, present and show case latest trends in the immersive technology arena. The sixth International Augmented and Virtual Reality conference was held online for the first time and for all of us, 2020/2021 has been a challenging year with many unknowns and changes to the way we work, socialise and operate. “Online” has become the new normal for meetings and conferences, possibly and most likely changing our future behaviours towards a blended online and offline approach. Nonetheless, we are delighted to announce that we will be hosting the 7th International XR conference together in Lisbon from the 27th to the 29th of April 2022. Hosted by Prof. Sandra Loureiro and her team at Instituto Universitário de Lisboa, the 7th International XR conference will focus on the theme of Extended Realities (XR) in Times of Crisis.

About Lisbon

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is situated on the north bank of the Tagus River, on Europe’s Atlantic coast.  It is the westernmost city in continental Europe but its location in the centre of Portugal makes exploring the country, and beyond, simple – it is only around 300 km to the resorts of the Algarve in the south and around 400 km to the northern border with Spain. 

Lisbon offers the visitors a wide variety of sights and activities, including scenic countryside, breath-taking  mountains, areas of historical interest and some of the best beaches in Europe, all just a few kilometers from the city centre. The city is extremely safe and tourist friendly - in 2019 Lisbon was named Europe's Leading City Break Destination.

In addition to mainland Portugal the country also includes the Atlantic islands of Madeira and the Azores, famous for their charm as well as their food and drink.  Portugal is one of the oldest countries in Europe, where outstanding monuments, castles and churches have been joined by futuristic new buildings, advanced technology and a vibrant and forward thinking population. Portugal is a country where old-world charm meets modern facilities and convenience, and has long been a favourite destination for the discerning tourist.
