Serious Virtual Worlds Conference Review & additional insight

by | Dec 1, 2008 | Articles

SVW’08 addressed the live issue of how virtual worlds cross boundaries both between the real world and virtual worlds and between virtual worlds.

As people spend increasing time in virtual worlds how will they interoperate between these virtual and real spaces?

SVW’08 was the only international event to take these leading edge issues and addressed them in a compact 2 day event.

The conference theme was Crossing Boundaries and covered topics such as

  • Digital Media innovation
  • Taking virtual worlds mobile
  • Applications of virtual worlds
  • views from abroad
  • challenges and opportunties
