  Cyberworlds 2010

Cyberworlds 2011

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.

The CW2011 conference 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
  • Computer vision, augmented, mixed and virtual reality
  • Human-computer interfaces
  • Cognitive informatics
  • Brain-computer interfaces

Accepted papers will be submitted by their authors directly to the IEEE Conference Publishing Services. The authors will be able to use the IEEE PDF eXpress online tool before submitting their final papers


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


Special issues in the following Springer international journals will be formed from the full papers:

The Visual Computer

Transactions on Computational Science

In addition, selected papers with appropriate content will be considered for special issues in the following Inderscience Journals:


The Biometric Journal

International Journal of Arts and Technology

 To be included in the conference proceedings and special journal issues, at least one author of the accepted paper must register and present the paper at the conference. If author does not appear in person, paper will be EXCLUDED from IEEE Xplore and on-line library.
