This workshop will focus on the main aspects of the development of Multimedia and Collaborative Virtual Environments (MCVEs). The concept of MCVEs is related to the integrated presentation of synchronized Multimedia objects (such as video, audio, images, etc.) within Collaborative Virtual Environments. Multimedia and Hypermedia information enrich userĀ“s perception and immersion in a Virtual Environment. Besides, Collaborative activities inside Multimedia Virtual Environments also captivate interest and increase the motivation and productivity of the user since he is able to communicate exchanging multimedia information and work jointly with geographically dispersed participants in real-time. The current development of MCVEs is a research challenge and represents a promising and interesting trend for the design of virtual interactive environments in different areas such as education, e-science, health, e-commerce, etc.

The goal of this workshop is to discuss key concepts, theoretical frameworks and technical approaches, challenges, innovative solutions, and open issues on the development of MCVEs. We invite researchers and designers to submit original Interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary technical contributions and position papers to explore and interchange new solutions for the development of integrated multimedia and collaborative virtual environments.
