Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to submit your work to the Special Issue of
MDPI Electronics journal (I/F=2.412) on "Recent Advances in Virtual
Reality and Augmented Reality".

Special Issue Information

In recent years, VR and AR technology have made remarkable progress.
Their fundamental problems, such as tracking and registration, have
been almost solved, and their applications for education, medicine,
architecture, automobiles, advertising, entertainment, etc., that
researchers dreamed of 20 years ago have been put to practical use
today. As some basic research has come to fruition, expectations for
VR and AR have increased, and opportunities for advanced studies have
also expanded. What should remote communications be when real-time
three-dimensional reconstruction is realized and 5G high-speed
communication becomes widespread? What information should be selected
and presented to the user when advanced situational awareness becomes
possible? What kind of short- and long-term effects on our body and
mind will be exhibited by augmented vision or body modification? VR
and AR are not just high-level computing environments but are becoming
the next generation of social infrastructure. Various technologies
such as artificial intelligence, human augmentation, and brain science
are progressing and merging with VR and AR to become a driving force
that puts VR and AR to even higher levels.

This Special Issue calls for many interesting studies that will open
up new horizons of VR and AR. In addition to research that has
steadily improved existing issues, we welcome research papers that
present new possibilities of VR and AR. Topics of interest include but
are not limited to the following:

360 video;
VR/AR applications;
Artificial intelligence/machine learning for VR/AR;
Brain science for VR/AR;
VR/AR collaboration;
Computer graphics for VR/AR;
Computer vision for VR/AR;
Content creation and management for VR/AR;
Context awareness for VR/AR;
Education with VR/AR;
Multimodal VR/AR;
Display technologies for VR/AR;
Ethics/humanity in VR/AR;
Human augmentations with VR/AR;
Human–computer interactions in VR/AR;
Human factors in VR/AR;
Perception/presence in VR/AR;
Physiological sensing for VR/AR;
User experience/usability in VR/AR;
Virtual humans/avatars in VR/AR;
Visualization/visual analytics with VR/AR;
Wellbeing with VR/AR.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering
and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to
go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the
deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be
published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will
be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles,
review articles as well as short communications are invited. For
planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be
sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor
be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference
proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a
single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other
relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the
Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international
peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a
manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in
this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers
should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's
English editing service prior to publication or during author

Frequently Asked Question

Q:What is the criteria to submit a previously published conference paper?
A:Please satisfy the following three points and you can submit an
extended version.
1. The conference paper must be cited in main text;
2. At least 50% new contents added;
3. The repetitive rate should be around or less than 30%;

Thank you very much!
