One early but important conclusion collected by Peach is that there is a clear need for unification and focus of efforts.  A challenging and visionary project centered on the main questions and goals of Presence Science and Technology can provide an efficient framework for focus and establish a consensus on the key questions and objectives to be addressed.

Such a visionary project could bring together several communities working today in the field, and should have a time scale of around 5 to 10 years, with, e.g., 3-year milestones, while opening up a large set of powerful applications.
There are some basic considerations in the definition of such a Grand Challenge.   
Such a project should be at core objective of Presence:  producing measurably "real" experiences through sensorial replacement and interaction with "bits". Should be ambitious, hard, medium to long term (~10 year horizon with 3 year milestones say). It should engage the needed communities (presumably in Human Cognition, Human-Machine Interaction) and Machine Cognition around a focal problem. Finally, should a project should lead to major advancement in Presence Theory, Experiment and Technology, and result in major positive social impact.
