WWW5 Workshop on VEs and the WWW

at the Fifth International World Wide Web Conference.

[Old page updated in order to kill the links to the now dead discussion server. If you are interested in the WWW-MOO technology used to prepare this event, check out its successor technology: APECKS, also developed by Jeni Tennison - DKS 9/97]


1. Discussion Server ***

A WWW-based discussion/annotation forum at http://spsyc.nott.ac.uk:5555/" has been used to prepare the workshop and to organize activities after the workshop. Original papers prepared by the participants are integrated into its "Living Document System" [Note 9/97: this server has killed now].

This Forum is open for everybody interested in Virtual Environments. ----------------

2. Accepted papers (including printables)

Includes: Home pages of some participants, a list of guest, original papers, pointers to "Living Document System" versions of papers, link to a FTP directories with Postscript files.
