CfP: Assembled 2016 - Part 2

 

 

The Journal of Virtual Worlds Research (http://www.jvwresearch.org/) is an online, open access academic journal that engages a wide spectrum of scholarship. We welcome contributions from the many disciplines and approaches that intersect with virtual worlds' research.

Motivation and Scope

The Assembled issue is a place for various papers, on the topic of the journal - that are being collected during the year and published usually once a year (in 2016 we will experiment with two assembled issues).


Authors who would like to submit directly to the ‘Assembled’ issue should do so by adding the words “submitted for Assembled” in the “Comments for Editor” on the 1st step of the submitting process.

 

Special focus topic – Cases

We have a thirst for short papers (2000-4000 words) that describe a unique component, phenomenon, a place, a character, etc.  Such cases need to be descriptive, visual (with pictures or models) with a meaningful “conclusions and impact” section at the end. There is less need for background - just give the details of the case in a form that will entice JVWR audience to read and take lessons from.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • 3D fun
  • Mini robots
  • Social networks that change our mind
  • Artificial limbs
  • New forms of hardware
  • Augmented and mixed environments
  • Wearables
  • User generated content
  • 3D printing
  • Visual data streaming
  • Immersive technologies
  • Shopping from home
  • Projections of the real
  • Wireless people
  • Portable friends
  • The Internet of Things
  • Virtual currencies
  • E-readers
  • And more
