The CyberTherapy Conference (CT11) brings together researchers, clinicians and funders to share and discuss the growing discipline of CyberTherapy. This year's theme acknowledges the importance of two related types of scientific studies that are usually presented at this meeting: clinical applications of VR and other technologies, and experimental research on why it has such a powerful impact in behavioural healthcare, medicine, and neuroscience. The theme also highlights changes which have occurred over the past decade: that which was once in the realm of science-fiction has now increasingly become part of our reality. People attending this
conference will therefore have the opportunity to play a role in designing the future.

This conference was originally a specialized symposium at the Medicine Meets Virtual Reality Conference (www.nextmed.com/mmvr_virtual_reality.html
) featuring presentations that dealt mostly with conceptual matters and future possibilities. The symposium has continued to grow over the years in both size and scientific evidence and spun off into an independent three-day conference in 2003.

Oral presentations, posters and symposiums are sought in the following areas, but are not limited to:
? Addictions
? Advanced user interfaces
? Anxiety disorders
? Augmented reality
? Autism
? Avatars and autonomous agents
? Cognitive assessment
? Cybersickness
? Eating disorders, obesity and body image disturbances
? Education
? Haptics
? Internet
? Mobile Computing
? Neuropsychological assessment
? Pain reduction
? Physiological measurement and imaging during immersion in VR
? Presence
? Rehabilitation
? Robotics
? Schizophrenia
? Telehealth and videoconferencing
? Training
? Videogame applications
? Virtual reality applications
