Description

The increasing amount of Artificial Intelligence (AI) added to Virtual Environments (VE) during the last few years has generated great research works in the intersection between both disciplines. This is the so-called Intelligent Virtual Environments area. Frequently this intersection takes place through the addition of intelligent agents to VE. These agents are also known as Virtual Agents.

The IVEVA conference aims to provide a friendly environment to discuss ideas in Intelligent Virtual Environments and Virtual Agents. In this sense, the conference is intended to promote the exchange of ideas between AI researchers and VE researchers and practitioners. We believe that this exchange between both disciplines will lead to exciting and fruitful discussions. IVEVA 2006 will be held in Aguascalientes (Mexico) on the 30-31 of October 2006.
