  1. 6. Shared Virtual Environments : Technology, Social Interaction, and Adaptation over Time

    Author : Maria Spante; Erik Stolterman; Institutionen för teknik och samhälle Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Shared virtual environments; virtual reality technology; social interaction; adaptation; collaboration; time; Informatik; Informatics;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates social interaction and adaptation over time in shared virtual environments. Shared virtual environments (SVEs) are computer generated 3D graphical spaces where geographically distributed people can meet and interact with each other in a graphical space. READ MORE

  2. 7. Virtual worlds and social interaction design

    Author : Mikael Jakobsson; Erik Stolterman; Ralph Schroeder; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Interaction design; virtual worlds; massively multiplayer online games; internet studies; computer mediated communication; virtual reality; virtual ethnography; human-computer interaction; interacture; social interaction design; Informatics; Informatik;

    Abstract : This dissertation is a study of social interaction in virtual worlds and virtual world design. A virtual world is a synchronous, multi-user system that offers a persistent spatial environment for iconically represented participants. Together, these form an example of social interaction design.

  3. 8. Structure-Based Virtual Screening : New Methods and Applications in Infectious Diseases

    Author : Micael Jacobsson; Anders Karlén; Mats Kihlén; Antti Poso; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; : drug discovery; docking; scoring; virtual screening; malaria; tuberculosis; Pharmaceutical chemistry; Läkemedelskemi;

    Abstract : A drug discovery project typically starts with a pharmacological hypothesis: that the modulation of a specific molecular biological mechanism would be beneficial in the treatment of the targeted disease. In a small-molecule project, the next step is to identify hits, i.e. molecules that can effect this modulation. READ MORE

  4. 9. Driving in Virtual Reality : Requirements for automotive research and development

    Author : Björn Blissing; Johan Ölvander; Fredrik Bruzelius; James Oliver; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Virtual Reality; Augmented Reality; Mixed Reality; Driver Behavior; Active Safety Testing;

    Abstract : In the last decades, there has been a substantial increase in the development of complex active safety systems for automotive vehicles. These systems need to be tested for verification and validation to ensure that the system intervenes in the correct situations using the correct measures. READ MORE

  5. 10. Driving in Virtual Reality : Investigations in Effects of Latency and Level of Virtuality

    Author : Björn Blissing; Johan Ölvander; Fredrik Bruzelius; Henrik Engström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Virtual Reality; Augmented Reality; Mixed Reality; Latency; Driver Behavior; Active Safety Testing;

    Abstract : When developing new active safety systems or improving existing systems, conducting performance evaluations is necessary. By performing these evaluations during early development stages, potential problems can be identified and mitigated before the system moves into the production phase. READ MORE
