Handbook on 3D3C platforms cover








Volume 7, Number 1 (2014):

Lantern (part 1)

Lantern issue part 1

The editorial team for this issue includes:

Abhishek Kathuria, The University of Hong Kong

David Gefen, Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA, USA

In this issue, we take a review lantern and shed some light on some of this field’s aspects. Clearly, we do not cover everything. We will often see shadows and not the full image. Ultimately, we hope to encourage further exploring of the field.


The first thematic issue of JVWR 7th year (2014) focuses on a literature review of 3D3C worlds according to specific topics such as Law, Taxation, Medical, Education, Money and more. The Lantern issue is published in two parts: Part 1 on Q1/2014 & Part 2 on Q3/2014.
