Conference Proceeding
Chilcott, M., & Smith, A. (2011). Ageing well and learning through online immersive participation using a multi-user Web 3D environment. https://doi.org/10.1109/VS-GAMES.2011.16

The Second Life (SL) multi-user virtual environment offers researcher opportunities to experiment with its rich communication, virtual collaboration, and 3-D content creation integrated tools. The SL synthetic world has already revealed great potenti... Read More about Ageing well and learning through online immersive participation using a multi-user Web 3D environment.

VIRVIL, a 3D virtual village to assess the impact of low and zero carbon technologies in the built environment (2008)
Conference Proceeding
Smith, A., Alexander, D., Fragaki, A., Jones, P., & Lannon, S. (2008). VIRVIL, a 3D virtual village to assess the impact of low and zero carbon technologies in the built environment. https://doi.org/10.1109/VIS.2008.9

Building on the extensive research in Virtual Reality (VR), we are proposing a new dynamic prototype for modelling and simulating carbon emissions in a virtual village called VIRVIL. VIRVIL is a simulated settlement for the assessment of the impact o... Read More about VIRVIL, a 3D virtual village to assess the impact of low and zero carbon technologies in the built environment.

Developing a global repository and showplace for imagery data (2003)
Conference Proceeding
Smith, A., Chen, M., & Webster, M. (2003). Developing a global repository and showplace for imagery data. https://doi.org/10.1109/TPCG.2003.1206946

© 2003 IEEE. This paper describes the development of a Web service that provides a 3D (three-dimensional) (VRML (Virtual Reality Modelling Language)) virtual environment for automated management and exhibition of imagery data. With this service, user... Read More about Developing a global repository and showplace for imagery data.
