Journal: JVWR new issue “Edge” is published

Volume 9, Number 3: Edge

Issue editor: Yesha Sivan, Coller Institute of Venture, Tel Aviv University, Israel

A collection of 5 papers which suggest new angles and unique points of view, is presented in this Edge issue. Each of these five papers pushes the boundaries of the disciplines in a different way. Together, they demonstrate the dual value of the JVWR, first as a stage to explore the future of virtual worlds (defined broadly,) and then help to shape the future of real worlds.
