This subject allows deepening into Intelligent Virtual Environments as a specific kind of computer systems:
-with very peculiar characteristics regarding human computer interaction (three dimensional environments in which the user is immersed and interacts with the objects, other users and autonomous agents)
-with specific technologies that support their construction and use (Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality devices)
-with very important and promising applications that demand more research and development efforts (such as educational or design applications) and still with many open challenges and research opportunities for the future
The main research and development trends in the area of Intelligent Virtual Environments will be presented, with a special focus on the peculiarities of 3D interaction, the challenges associated with the design of intelligent virtual agents, and educational applications.
