The 7th International Workshop on
Massively Multiuser Virtual Environments (MMVE 2015)
March 20, 2015 - Portland, Oregon
in conjunction with the ACM Multimedia Systems Conference (MMSys)
Massively Multiuser Virtual Environment (MMVE) systems are spatial simulations that provide real-time human interactions among thousands to millions of concurrent users. MMVEs 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 Hobbo Hotel. The technical aspect of designing, developing, and deploying them is highly interdisciplinary and involves experts from many domains, e.g., graphics, networking, protocol 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 MMVEs. By gathering experts under one roof, we wish to discuss their findings, incite collaborations, and move the state of the art forward.
The workshop is open to cover the various facets of massively multiuser virtual environment and will allow to have active discussions and interactions on the clearly focused, hot, and emerging topics of MMVE. We encourage discussions based on the presented papers to advance the state-of-the-art and to identify current and future research topics. In this workshop, we seek original papers that propose new methods, systems, and other solutions which overcome current shortcomings. We are particularly interested in raising discussions about the following questions:
Specifically, we seek papers in the following and similar topics:
