VWBPE 2023: Uncommon Realities

March 23-25, 2023

International Conference on Education in Virtual and Augmented Reality

VWBPE 2023 Presentation Call for Proposals EXTENSION

Do you need a few more days to get your Uncommon Realities presentation proposal submitted for VWBPE 2023? We have good news! The Presentation Call for Proposals has been extended until Monday 23 January.

Don’t delay! This will be the FINAL extension for presentation proposals. Explore the 6 exciting formats. You might want to consider one of the shorter Micro Burst or Tool Talk formats. Is there a burning issue you would like to address? Consider a Compass Point Roundtable discussion. Spotlight presentations and Hands On Workshops are great ways to share your work with the VWBPE community. Posters provide an alternative format, with lots of room to share your work creatively.

One of the wonderful things about virtual environments are the innovative ways that communities and educators use these spaces. Invite the VWBPE community to explore your space for an Immersive Experience either before or after the conference. Immersive Experiences proposals are due 13 February 2023.

Exhibit spaces are available within the newest iteration of the conference venue which explores the natural wonders of the Earth. Exhibit proposals are due 13 February 2023. Choice of available biomes is first come, first served!
