Site Shop > Virtual Storytelling. Using Virtual Reality Technologies for Storytelling: International Conference Proceedings 2001

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the first International Conference on Virtual Storytelling, ICVS 2001, held in Avignon, France, in September 2001. Taking the original blurb from the 2001 conference:

If you are using or developing tools or algorithms that can be used to author digital stories, if you are interested in Virtual Reality technologies as real and efficient solutions for creating interactive 3D content or optimizing and managing their production, then you should not miss the International Conference on Digital Storytelling which will occur in September 2001 in Avignon - France which organises the World's most important theatre festival.

This international conference will gather researchers from the scientific, artistic and industrial communities to demonstrate new methods and techniques, show the latest results, and to exchange concepts and ideas for the use of Virtual Reality technologies for creating, populating, rendering and interacting with stories, what ever their form be it theatre, movie, cartoon, advertisement, puppet show, multimedia work, video-games...

This book is thusly a collection of all 24 major papers from that conference, covering a very diverse, fascinating range of topics essential for all manner of VR creation, not just storytelling.
