We are happy to announce the publication of a NEW ISSUE from the Journal of Virtual Worlds Research (JVWR):

Volume 8, Number 2:


Issue Editor: Yesha Sivan, Coller Institute of Venture, Tel Aviv University, Israel; School of Design, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, HK.
This issue presents six papers, each reflecting on one angle to the future of virtual worlds: Four concrete views relating to bots, head mounted displays (HMD), neuroscience and meditation, and eSports; as well as two theoretical views relating to the focus of virtual worlds research and looking at virtual worlds as a mediator between “technology trends” and the “digital transformation of society and business.”
From 2015 point of view: The virtual is becoming the real and the real is becoming the virtual.
