The Augmented and Virtual Reality Policy Conference

Hosted by The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) and The XR Association

Immersive technology is poised to transform the way people work, play, and learn. From an emerging creator economy of virtual goods and services to cutting-edge applications that can improve education, health care, and manufacturing, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) technologies are unlocking new opportunities to communicate, access information, and engage with the world. These changes raise important questions, and how policymakers respond will have profound implications for the economy and society.

  • Privacy and safety
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Antitrust and interoperability
  • Content moderation and free expression
  • International trade and development
  • 5G and cybersecurity
  • Jobs, productivity, and the creator economy
  • Skills and education
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion and accessibility
  • Defense and national security
  • Digital government
  • Web3, NFTs, and cryptocurrency in the metaverse
