Call for Papers for Cyberworlds (CW 2008)

Hangzhou, Chinao<September 22-24, 2008o< 


The conference Proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society
Press. Manuscripts should be written in English conforming to the IEEE
standard conference format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column) as shown in Manuscripts
should be submitted through the conference online website. Each manuscript
may not exceed 8 pages of IEEE format. Solicited papers of high-quality will
be published in "The Visual Computer", "Transactions on Edutainment", "The
International Journal of Virtual Reality". 

Cyberworlds are information worlds being formed on 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 the Cyberworlds is far
above the level of integrating spatial database models and temporal database
models. This conference will deal with large distributed information worlds
on Internet and methods/tools used for creating such worlds.

Conference Topics 

b" Philosophy, evolution, and ethics of Cyberworlds 
b" Cyberworlds and their impact on the real worlds 
b" Telemedicine, healthcare in Cyberworlds
b" Mobile computing, mobile graphics, mobile game
