The International Society for Virtual Systems and Multimedia is a unique transdisciplinary organization for the exchange of cutting edge research in new media and virtual and augmented reality applied to everything from art to architecture, medicine to engineering, and archaeology to cultural heritage.  We take pride in bringing academia and industry together with policy makers.  We bridge computer scientists and artists, engineers and historians, policy makers and philosophers, archaeologists and architects, doctors and librarians, roboticists and cultural officials, and more.
VSMM was conceived in Japan in 1995 by Professor Takeo Ojika at the Virtual Systems Laboratory at Gufu University.  It was arguably the first international VR conference and has remained a leading venue for cross-disciplinary scholarly research and exchange in cutting-edge multimedia and virtual systems.
The VSMM Society has held annual conferences for 22 years now, bringing leading researchers in the application of digital media, mobile, and virtual and augmented reality technology together with users across a diverse community.  In partnership with the IEEE Society the majority of VSMM Conference proceedings are available on IEEE Xplore.
