                   CALL FOR PAPERS

          ACM-Springer Multimedia Systems

  Special issue on Multimedia and Multisensory Virtual Worlds

              Submissions due: May 15, 1995

Virtual worlds are going beyond 3D graphics and are beginning to
use multimedia and multisensory technologies such as video, spatial
sound, speech, images, haptic and tactile feedback, and wind and
heat sensation. This has led to new applications for virtual
worlds in science, engineering, medicine, business, training,
entertainment and arts to explore physical environments that
exist remotely (telepresence), or simulated environments that do
not or could not exist; to enrich existing environments
(augmented realities); and to develop physical analogues for
abstract quantitative and organizational data.

Original, unpublished research and practice & experience papers
are sought that address issues in the design, implementation,
and evaluation of virtual worlds that use multimedia and
multisensory technologies. Topics include, but are not limited

   multimedia and multisensory interfaces for virtual worlds

   software architectures for using multimedia in virtual worlds

   enhancing presence with multimedia and multisensory technologies

   distributed and multi-user virtual worlds

   knowledge-based multimedia world modeling

   manual and automated multimedia world design facilities

   navigation, search, and retrieval in large multimedia virtual worlds

   novel applications in visualizing, exploring and manipulating
   rich multimedia information spaces

   evaluation of the effectiveness of multimedia virtual
   worlds, and their impact on users, applications, and

5 copies of each manuscript should be submitted to the special
issue editor at the address below. For papers that do not
include color pictures, email submission is encouraged.
