IEEEVR2020 is the first conference to take place entirely in a virtual environment at this scale (currently, 1,500+ participants)! Please help us learn more about communication and social interaction in virtual worlds at a time when physical distancing is necessary but social interactions must go on. By observing your interactions online, we hope to learn about how different platforms and their features can impact social interactions and communications.
