Call for Papers CW 2007

October 24-27, 2007 - Leibnizhaus Hannover, Germany


Cyberworlds are information worlds being formed on the Internet, either intentionally or spontaneously, with or without design. As information worlds, they are either virtual or real and can be both. In terms of information modeling, the theoretical ground for Cyberworlds is far above the level of integrating spatial and temporal database models. This conference will deal with large distributed information worlds on the Internet as well as methods and tools used for creating such worlds.

A new feature of the conference this year will be topics dealing with the relation between Cyberworlds and Computational Engineering (CE). This means, we encourage submissions showing how contributions from CE will help improving the physical accuracy of Cyberworlds and Virtual Reality (VR). Vice versa, we also ask for submissions showing how concepts from Cyberworlds (and VR) help to improve environments and systems used for CE applications, e.g. medical science.

The conference proceedings will be printed by IEEE. Extended versions of the best papers will be published in a special issue of "The Visual Computer".
