Extended reality − How to boost quality of experience and interoperability

Kaleidoscope 2022 - ​Extended reality – How to boost quality of experience and interoperability is the fourteenth in a series of peer-reviewed academic conferences organized by ITU to bring together a wide range of views from universities, industry and research institutions. The aim of the Kaleidoscope conferences is to identify emerging developments in information and communication technologies (ICTs) and, in particular, areas in need of international standards to aid the sustainable development of our interconnected world.

Kaleidoscope 2022 calls for original academic papers sharing insight into ongoing projects and research relevant to the development and widespread adoption of extended realities, as well as new possibilities and associated challenges appearing on the horizon. Particularly, this conference encourages submissions on how standards can help boost quality of experience and interoperability in extended realities.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The best papers will be also evaluated for potential publication in the IEEE Communications Standards Magazine. In addition, extended versions of selected papers might be considered for publication in international journals.

A prize fund totaling CHF 6 000.- will be shared among the authors of the three best papers, as judged by the Steering and Technical Programme Committees.  Authors are strongly recommended to make explicit in their paper, and in their presentation at the conference, how their research work is relevant to the conference theme and to future standards, as these criteria carry more weight in the award selection. Young authors of up to 30 years of age presenting accepted papers will receive Young Author Recognition certificates.
