International Symposium on Cyber Worlds: Theories and Practices
November 6-8, 2002, Tokyo, Japan


The First International Symposium on Cyber Worlds (CW2002) will take place in Tokyo, Japan, in November. This symposium will include four tracks and will embrace the scopes of Methodologies, Software Engineering, Modeling, Simulations, Developments and Applications of Parallel/Distributed Computer Systems and Networks, Shape Modeling, and Computer Graphics. It will thus provide an opportunity for scientists, engineers, and researchers from around the world to share the latest research, ideas, and developments in these fields. The conference will include keynote addresses, contributed papers, and tutorials. CW2002 will be held at Hosei University's Ichigaya campus, located in the central part of Tokyo. Touring around the city, you will discover a towering architecture and many colorful attractions such as museums, boutiques, and restaurants.

Paper submissions due: May 25, 2002
Notification of acceptance: June 15, 2002
Registration, full payment, and final papers due: July 15, 2002


Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers in English (about 6 to 8 pages long) via the Web site at
Use the electronic submission system at this conference WEB site.

Papers will be redirected automatically to program co-chairs in accordance with the track indicator A, B, C, D.
The paper should include a cover page containing the title of the paper, authors' names and affiliations, and an abstract, some keywords, and contact author information (postal address, e-mail address, and fax number). The only acceptable file format is PDF.
Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by three researchers in the topic area. The camera-ready papers will be reviewed by one person. In addition to technical papers in plenary sessions, the program for CW2002 will include academic and industrial tutorials. The Papers whose authors fail to register for the conference by July 15, 2002, will not be printed in the proceedings. The Conference Proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Notification of acceptance will be sent via e-mail by June 16, 2002
