We
are happy to announce the publication of a NEW ISSUE from the Journal of
Virtual Worlds Research (JVWR):
  Volume 8, Number 2: Futures
*Issue Editor*: Yesha Sivan, Coller Institute of Venture, Tel Aviv
University, Israel; School of Design, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, HK.

This issue presents six papers, each reflecting on one angle to the future
of virtual worlds: Four concrete views relating to bots, head mounted
displays (HMD), neuroscience and meditation, and eSports; as well as two
theoretical views relating to the focus of virtual worlds research and
looking at virtual worlds as a mediator between “technology trends” and the
“digital transformation of society and business.”

>From 2015 point of view: *The virtual is becoming the real and the real is
becoming the virtual*.
