The ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology (VRST) is
the premier international symposium for the presentation of new
research results, systems, and techniques among researchers and
developers on augmented, virtual and mixed reality (AR/VR/MR, XR for
short) software and technology.

VRST brings together the premier international research groups working
on XR, along with many of the world’s leading companies that provide
or utilize XR systems. VRST 2021 will be held in Osaka, Japan, hosted
by Osaka University, from Wednesday, Dec. 8th to Friday, Dec. 10th,
2021. The event is sponsored by ACM SIGCHI and SIGGRAPH.

All sessions will be hosted through an online platform. Some of the
sessions will also be held on-site at Osaka University, located in
Osaka, Japan. The Osaka area (and nearby regions like Kyoto and Kobe)
is quite populous and lively, and there are many places to visit such
as historical buildings, lively entertainment areas, and amusement
facilities. In addition, the schedule (tentative) is conveniently set
up so that the participants can also join the SIGGRAPH Asia 2021
(December 14-17, in Tokyo) in succession.

Important Dates:

- July 15, 2021, 23:59 AoE Papers with all material submission deadline
- August 15, 2021, 23:59 AoE Posters and demos submission deadline
- August 31, 2021, Author notification papers, posters, and demos
- October 1, 2021, Camera-ready papers due
- December 8 - 10, 2021, Conference in Osaka, Japan + virtual (hybrid)

Submission Information:

Please use the ACM SIGCHI Conferences Submission System (PCS) to
submit your work:

All accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library in
the VRST collection.

Paper Format:

Paper submissions (applied for Full papers and Short Papers) should be
anonymous for a double blind review process.  By contrast, Poster and
Demo submissions do NOT have to be anonymous, and these submissions
will be juried by committee members and receive light feedback (up to
a few paragraphs in length). All submissions should be prepared in **a
single column format**, using the Word or LaTeX templates from the
official ACM Master article template packages and TAPS (see

For convenience, we have listed approximate word counts for the single
column format below. See the TAPS website for additional guidance on
how content length corresponds to the page limits for the final

Submission lengths:

Full research paper: ~6750 words single column (final version: max. 9
pages double column + references)
Short paper: ~3300 words single column (final version: max. 4 pages
double column + references)
Poster: ~1200 words single column (final version: max. 2 pages double
column + references)
2-column "teaser" figures on the front page are encouraged, but not
required for all submissions.

For authors using LaTeX, submit with
\documentclass[acmsmall,anonymous,review]{acmart} and then use
\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart} for the final version.

Details about the submission procedure can be found on the symposium website:


Paper acceptance is always conditional on at least one author
registering for the conference and presenting their work in person.
