Virtual Environment systems are spatial simulations that provide real-time human interactions with other users or a simulated virtual world. Virtual environments have experienced phenomenal growth in recent years in the form of massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) such as World of Warcraft and Lineage, and social communities such as Second Life and Habbo Hotel. Virtual environments are also considered a central building block in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality systems, especially for multi user systems. They are also examined in areas like the Internet of Things or Cyber Physical Systems to act as a common information space that can be used e.g. by smart devices to interact with each other.
The technical aspect of designing, developing, and deploying them is highly interdisciplinary and involves experts from many domains, e.g., graphics, networking, and architecture designs. The MMVE workshop intends to provide a forum for both academic researchers and industry developers to investigate the architectural and system support for virtual environments. By gathering experts under one roof, we wish to discuss their findings, incite collaborations, and move the state of the art forward.
The workshop seeks to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in the field, and will encourage discussions based on the presented papers to identify current and future research topics.
