Journal of Computer Animation and Virtual Simulation

Aims and scope

Journal of Computer Animation and Virtual Simulation is an international refereed journal publishes quarterly online open access by KMF that to address this global thematic of the Virtual Worlds. This thematic has been subdivided into six main areas such as Computer animation, Embodied agents, Virtual Environments, Augmented Reality, Virtual Life and Visualization. The journal seeks papers in all fields of Virtual Worlds. Contributions are solicited describing original research results, applications, and experience in the following topics (but not limited to):
Computer Animation (2D animation, 3D animation, Keyframe animation, Inverse kinematics, Biomechanics models, Motion capture and motion retargeting, Physical-based animation, Facial and body animation, Path planning, Cloth and hair animation, LOD and impostors, Real-time rendering)
Augmented Reality (Tracking, Mobile AR systems, Virtual Heritage)
Embodied Agents (Perceptual models, Virtual Sensors, Interagent communication, Modelling of groups and crowds, Conversational agents, Goal driven behavior, Interaction with Virtual Humans, Intelligent virtual actors, Social behavior, Emotions and personality, Autonomous Virtual Human architectures, Simulation involving Virtual Humans, Autonomous Virtual Humans in games)
Virtual Environments (Gesture and action recognition, Haptic interfaces, Audiospace, Simulators, VR for emergency, VR for psychiatry, VR for rehabilitation, Virtual surgery)
Virtual Life (Plant development and growing, L-systems, Artificial animals and animats, Population generation, Virtual cities, Persistent worlds)
Visualization (Medical imaging and reconstruction, Molecular graphics, Fluid visualization, Visualization of physical phenomena, Volume rendering)
