Impacting the Real Future via the Virtual Present

Yesha Y Sivan


The Assembled 2014 issue includes six papers demonstrating the diversity and depth of topics we strive to cover:

  • The future of massive collaborative events
  • The future of anonymity (and antisocial behavior)
  • The future of 3D collaboration
  • The future of friendships
  • The future of health care via “Motivational Interviewing
  • The future of looking at the other
These six papers demonstrate some of JVWR goals. They are pushing our thinking about both the virtual and the real, they are presenting “new” academic science that go beyond the trivial, and they are taking a stand about the world. We encourage authors to follow the diverse models presented here.
