International Symposium on Ubiquitous Virtual Reality (ISUVR) is an international symposium for state of the art in research on ubiquitous virtual reality.  Emerging ubiquitous computing paradigm accelerates the convergence of different technologies to enrich the quality of services and user experience.  With this trends, for the past years, International Symposium on Ubiquitous Virtual Reality (ISUVR) has been a successful event where participants can exchange interdisciplinary research ideas about "Ubiquitous VR" with other researchers from different backgrounds. Thus, it would be timely to initiate a forum to discuss and share ideas on "Presence in Ubiquitous VR" which combines various AR/MR/VR related technologies to feel physical and social existence for Ubiquitous VR systems/applications.
