Extended Reality (XR) is becoming mainstream, with major corporations
releasing consumer products, and non-experts using the systems to solve
real-world problems outside the traditional XR laboratory. With the
research and technological advances, it is now possible to use these
technologies in almost all domains and places. This provides a bigger
opportunity to create applications that intend to impact society in greater
ways than beyond just entertainment. Today the world is facing different
challenges including, but not limited to, healthcare, environment, and
education. Now is the time to explore how XR might be used to solve
widespread societal challenges. After three successful gatherings, the 4th
Extended Reality for Good (XR4Good) workshop will keep bringing together
researchers, developers, and industry partners in presenting and promoting
research that intends to solve real-world problems using augmented and
virtual realities. The 4th XR4Good will keep providing a platform to grow a
research community that discusses challenges and opportunities to create
Extended Reality for Good: XR that helps humankind and society in more
impactful ways.

We invite application and position papers (2-4 pages, excluding
references), that address the way that XR technologies can solve real-world
problems in various application domains including, but not limited to,
health, safety & security, the environment, workforce development,
education, sports, the arts, and applications in support of special needs
such as assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative applications. Our focus and
preference will be on applications that are beyond general uses of XR such
as entertainment and recreational gaming; we seek submissions describing
work with specific goals and methods aimed at improving the lives of
individuals, communities, or society.
