Call: “Arts and Virtual Worlds” at 2011 International Conference on CyberWorlds

Cyberworlds Conference Special Session

2011 International Conference on CyberWorlds
4-6 October 2011, Banff, Alberta, Canada


Send your submission and any other request to: Chair Dr.Gianluca Mura

In Cooperation with ACM SIGGRAPH and EUROGRAPHICS Association
Endorsed by IEEE VGTC Committee for IEEE technical co-sponsorship
Proceedings will be published by IEEE-CS

Organized by the Department of Computer Science, University of Calgary, with support from Informatics Circle of Research Excellence iCORE and School of Computer Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Conference papers will be published in the proceedings printed by IEEE Computer Society. Two special journal issues by Springer: The Visual Computer and Transactions on Computational Science are confirmed. In addition, selected papers with appropriate content will be considered for two Inderscience Journals: International Journal of Arts and Technology and Journal of Biometrics.

The conference runs in-cooperation with ACM SIGGRAPH and EUROGRAPHICS Association and IEEE VGTC Computer Society technical co-sponsorship has been endorsed.

Cyberworlds are information worlds or communities created on cyberspace by collaborating participants either intentionally or spontaneously. As information worlds, they accumulate information regardless whether or not anyone is in, and they can be with or without 2D or 3D visual graphics appearance. The examples of such cyberworlds are communities created in different social networking services, 3D shared virtual environments, and multiplayer online games. Cyberworlds are closely related to the real world and have a serious impact on it. Cyberworlds have been created and applied in such areas as e-business, e-commerce, e-manufacturing, e-learning, e-medicine, and cultural heritage, etc. Cyberworlds augment and sometimes replace the real life and become a significant component of real economy.

The international conferences on Cyberworlds have being organized annually since 2002 with the proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society and special issues published in The Visual Computer and other research journals. 11th in the series, CW2011 will consist of paper sessions, tutorials, industrial seminars, exhibitions and hands-on demonstrations where researchers, artists, and vendors will show the state-of-the-art in the field.

CW2011 will have several parallel tracks including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Shared virtual worlds
  • Virtual collaborative spaces
  • Shape modeling for cyberworlds
  • Virtual humans and avatars
  • Intelligent talking agents
  • Networked collaboration
  • Haptic interaction and rendering
  • Cognitive informatics
  • Human-computer interfaces
  • Computer vision, augmented, mixed and virtual reality
  • Face and emotion recognition
  • E-learning in virtual collaborative spaces
  • Online multiplayer games
  • Art in cyberspace, cyber-museums
  • Cyberethics and cyberlaws
  • Cybersecurity and biometrics
  • Data mining and warehousing in cyberworlds
  • Social networking

The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society, placed in the IEEE Xplore and Computer Society digital libraries, and submitted for indexing through INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISI, and other indexing services.

The best full papers will form 4 special issues of the following international journals:

  • The Visual Computer (Springer)
  • Transactions on Computational Science (Springer)
  • International Journal of Arts and Technology (Inderscience)
  • Journal of Biometrics (Inderscience)
