IEEE VR 2024: The 31st IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces
March 16-21, 2024 | Orlando, Florida USA


The IEEE VR 2024 DEIA Accessibility Streaming is intended to provide support for students, early-career researchers (graduate students and postdocs), established researchers, or other interested individuals who would have liked to attend IEEE Virtual Reality 2024 but face financial, physical, or other atypical barriers to attending the conference in person. This includes people who are d/Deaf, hard of hearing, or otherwise require captions; people who are blind and low vision; people with mobility challenges; and members of under-represented or historically marginalized groups.

Selected individuals will be provided access to live streaming of select IEEE VR 2024 sessions, e.g., the opening/closing ceremonies, keynote talks, and special sessions. Due to IEEE and other restrictions of the public broadcasting of conference content, DEIA Accessibility Streaming will be restricted to those individuals who demonstrate a need through our application.


We will be accepting applications through the end of the conference (i.e., Closing Ceremony, March 21st). Those selected for DEIA Accessibility Streaming access will be informed on a rolling basis as their applications are approved and provided with instructions to promptly access the stream.

Interested individuals may apply via this Google Form:
