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
best international research experiences of virtual world concept
creations from a wide range of media culture fields, at the edge of
artistic and scientific inquiry and emerging technologies. It will be
written for professionals, researchers, artists and designers who want
to improve their understanding of the strategic role of virtual worlds
within the development of digital communication.

Target Audience

The target audience of this book will be composed of professionals and
researchers, designers, artists, and creative developers, working in
various fields (e.g. information and communication sciences, art and
design, education, psychology, sociology, neurosciences, computer
science, and information technology). Moreover, the book will provide
insights and support to innovative and creative studies concerned
with the development of virtual worlds within different types of
working and research communities.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Virtual world projects, concepts, methodologies in
design,arts&humanities,science and technology
- Virtual reality,augmented and mixed reality studies and applications
- Human computer interaction and user interfaces studies and applications
