The International Summer School on eXtended Reality Technology and eXperience aimed to provide both an objective and clear overview and an in-depth analysis of the state-of-the-art research in eXtended Reality. We have witnessed a revolution in theory and technology recently. The coming years will see a huge increase of applications as advanced devices and 5G communications become widespread. This summer school aimed to provide a stimulating opportunity for young researchers and PhD students.
