Application Competition for Intelligent Reality (ACIR)

Technological integration of smart interactive devices, immersive technologies, artificial intelligence, machine learning algorithms, IoT, and other emerging disruptive technologies are the future of propelling Intelligent Reality (IR). We challenge developers to create IR applications converging disruptive emerging technologies that provide interactive and intelligent user experience for immersive (VR/AR/MR/XR) environments.

Those interested in competing in the Application Competition for Intelligent Reality must submit their work for evaluation — November 13, 2022 Deadline extended to 30 November 2022!

For your IR application to be evaluated and considered for awards, you must meet the following eligibility criteria and adhere to the submission instructions below:


The competition is open to anyone interested in Intelligent Reality development. You do not need to register for the conference to compete. Two competition tracks will be held:

  • Professionals: researchers, hobbyists, or professionals.
