This year the workshop was organised by the postdoctoral researcher Silvia Rossi as general chair and the scientific developer Thomas Röggla as web chair both from the Distributed and Interactive System (DIS) group of CWI, together with Débora C.

MMVE started in 2008 and serves as an inclusive and interdisciplinary forum, spanning a broad spectrum of topics related to immersive media or extended reality (XR), including mixed reality (MR), augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR). This workshop allows the gathering and interaction of researchers in the field of immersive technology, from both academia and industry, with multimedia system researchers. 
This year MMVE received an impressive number of 21 high-quality submissions spanning a broad spectrum of multimedia topics, including virtual reality, multisensory experience, point cloud compression, quality of experience, social virtual reality, avatar design, and gaming. As a result, 13 full papers and 2 short ones have been presented in the workshop.

Keeping the tradition of MMVE as an interactive and discussion-oriented workshop that serves as an inclusive and interdisciplinary forum, the program was structured with two oral sessions and one poster session to facilitate engagement and collaboration.
