Buy
The 13th International Conference on Virtual Systems and Multimedia was held in Brisbane, Australia in September 2007. This was the first time that VSMM was sited in Australia. The Australian conference theme reflected the country’s cultural heritage, both recent and past – Exchange and Experience in Space and Place. Of the many papers submitted under this theme we were able to identify three core sub-themes: Virtual Heritage, Applied Technologies and Virtual Environments. With a truly international flavor, these sub-themes covered the diverse areas of heritage site and artifact reconstruction and analysis, Australian Aboriginal cultural heritage, training, notions of spirituality, human – computer interaction in virtual environments, 3D modelling, remote collaboration and virtual agents. This made for rich, varied and lively conference session debates.

Ninety-seven papers were submitted. Of these, 56 were accepted for inclusion in the general conference proceedings. Of these, 18 were further reviewed and selected for this Springer publication. The authors of these papers were invited to revise their papers following feedback from the conference before inclusion in this volume.

Many people contributed to the conference. We first wish to thank the Virtual Systems and Multimedia Society, who provided strong support to the whole process of the preparation of the conference. In particular, we would like to express our thanks to Takeo Ojika, Mario Santana Quintero and Hal Thwaites for their generous support and guidance.

We are grateful to Amanda Boland-Curran, Barbara Adkins, Laz Kastanis, Martin Lack and Jackie Lack for their hard work on the local arrangements. Last but not least, we would like to express our gratitude to all the contributors, reviewers and International Program Committee members, without whom the conference would not have been possible.

Experience the Message: How Experiential Marketing Is Changing the Brand World
Consumers — exposed to roughly four thousand marketing messages a day — are no longer willing to be part of a passive consumer base, subject to conventional advertising and marketing. Rather, they are joining a growing tribe of brand atheists who don't want to be targeted by impersonal messages. They want dialogue, which...

Control of Single Wheel Robots (Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics)
This monograph presents a novel concept of a mobile robot, which is a single-wheel, gyroscopically stabilized robot. The robot is balanced by a spinning wheel attached through a two-link manipulator at the wheel bearing, and actuated by a drive motor. This configuration conveys significant advantages including insensitivity to attitude...
