2021 XR Brain Jam Attendee Application
The goal of the XR Brain Jam is to bring researchers and XR creators together to explore XR applications at the intersection of science and industry. Individuals and small groups are both welcome to apply. Accepted applicants will be paired with a team of other XR Brain Jam attendees with complementing skills.
XR Brain Jam teams will typically have one researcher working with a team of developers whose skills cover tech, art, audio, and design.
You should apply if one of the following describes you:
- You are a Researcher or Subject Matter Expert. Researchers do not need to have any experience with game development or XR. One of the goals of the XR Brain Jam is to connect researchers outside games to XR practitioners.
- You are a Developer or Creator (or team of developers/creators) who has worked on XR hardware platforms before or is interested in working on XR platforms. This includes those with expertise in coding, game design, 3D artists, sound engineers, UX/UI designers, etc.
The XR Brain Jam spans two weekends, June 19-20 and June 25-27th. The first weekend schedule will be 2-3 hours each day for teams to get to know each other and lay the groundwork for their project. The second weekend will be the main development window, from Friday evening to Sunday evening, ending with a closing showcase. The event will be 100%online, facilitated by Discord and Zoom.
Applications are free. If accepted, a small participation fee of $20 is required to reserve your seat. This fee is waived for returning XR Brain Jam alumni.
Notice of acceptance will be sent out no later than June 1st, 2021.
