Abstract : Virtual Reality Annual International Symposium (VRAIS) 1997 presents a sample of all the things that make the field of virtual reality (VR) an exciting area in which to work. We have papers this year that present quality research on a variety of topics in computing, HCI, and hardware. We also have, for the first time, a number of papers on real applications of VR that go beyond the usual entertainment and giving media interviews. VRAIS continues to attract an international audience, with authors participating from the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Japan and Hong Kong. We have made every effort to maintain the standard of excellence established by previous program chairs. In addition to being international and broadly representative of the field, these proceedings also present some of the best research and development efforts in Virtual Reality. The credit for this goes to the authors who chose to send their work to VRAIS, and to the members of the Program Committee who provided careful reviews of the papers.
