JVWR workshop ICIS 2013 (Milan, Italy, December 15) and CFP for "Virtual
Worlds - Meta Analysis" Issue

Motivation and Scope

The first thematic issue of our 7th year (next year) will focus on meta
analysis of virtual worlds. The issue will connect with JVWR workshop in
Milan, Italy on December 15th, 2013 (as part of AIS ICIS 2013
http://icis2013.aisnet.org/<http://jvwresearch.us2.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=de4fa2a435382cb1fa67cb708&id=b6ed964e3e&e=790f62627f>
).

For this issue, “meta-analysis” means a particular review of corpus of
knowledge about an aspect of virtual worlds. It can be a classic literature
review, or a more formal statistical meta analysis (see
