The 8th International Conference on Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Computer Graphics (SALENTO AVR 2021) intends to bring together the community of researchers from academia and industry, computer scientists, engineers, physicians in order to share points of views, knowledge, experiences and scientific and technical results, related to state-of-the-art solutions and technologies on virtual and augmented reality applications for medicine, cultural heritage, education, industrial sectors, as well as the demonstration of advanced products and technologies.


SALENTO AVR 2021 accepts two types of paper: full papers (10-20 pages), and short papers (6-9 pages).

Full papers should be mainly focused on research, applications or systems describing results that contribute to advances in state-of-the-art software, hardware, algorithms, interaction or human-factors.

Short papers should be mainly focused on work-in-progress, achievements of initial research, projects in early stages of development, case studies, etc. Accepted short papers will be published in the conference proceedings and presented at the conference as poster.

For your convenience, the poster template can be downloaded here.

Salento AVR Conference uses single-blind review process.


The best papers will be selected by the Scientific Committee and the winners will been awarded during the closing session.

Authors of accepted papers that intend to participate at the AVR Competition will give a 5-minute presentation in this session in order to explain the application and, eventually, to permit the audience to try it. The winner of the AVR Competition will be announced during the closing session.
