CALL FOR PAPERS

The increasing amount of Artificial Intelligence added to
Virtual Environments 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 2008 will be held in Nanjing (China) on
June 26-27, 2008, co-located with:Edutainment’2008
(http://edutainment2008.eegame.cn/)
