Integrative Mixed Virtual Reality in Mobile Information Systems

Call for Papers

Immersive Virtual Reality is recognized as one of the most promising technologies with a great potential in the way that humans will interact with systems. Huge investments in the domain provide a large scale of technological tools and applications for an enriched user experience.

The mobile information systems will be challenged by the evolution of Immersive Virtual Reality. The provision of content, the design of engaging contexts, and the justification of effective scenarios and strategies are key requirements for the integrative mixed virtual reality in mobile information systems. Furthermore more, delicate insights like the facilitation of perception, presence, distance, virtual embodiment, and cognition in Immersive Virtual Reality systems set several research questions and demand a multidisciplinary approach.

“The future is immersive” according to Mark Zuckerberg, and companies like Yahoo, Facebook, Microsoft, and Google are currently in a race for Immersive Virtual Reality content. Gadgets like Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, and many others are the first commercially launched interfaces for the interaction with the new era of systems.

Mobile information systems and their convergence with Virtual Reality Technologies are in the focus of this special issue aiming at fostering a scientific debate for the new era of value proposition in services, applications, and content. The move towards integrative mixed virtual reality in mobile information systems will require sophisticated approaches for enhanced contexts with enriched digital media elements. New business strategies and business models will also be required for the adoption of technologies in the daily business process beyond limitations and barriers of the traditional business models.

This special issue is intended to initiate a dialog between the academic, computing, business, human, behavioral, cognitive, and technical views of the field that affect the integration of virtual reality and MISY. Novel approaches and sound technological solutions will be expected.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Immersive Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality/Mixed Reality (VR/AR/MR) applications in mobile information systems domain
