BOOK PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Introduction
The concept of virtual worlds is strongly related to the current
innovations of new media communication. This book offers an
interdisciplinary approach to virtual world studies focused on
aesthetics and semantics principles from science,technology,media arts
and design. It is important for researchers and practitioners
interested in this area to understand the actual criteria for creating
virtual worlds' as well as their further evolution, regarding system
architecture,information visualization and human interaction.

Objective of the Book
This book gives in-depth coverage of the state-of-the-art among the
