Dear Biomch-L readers,

Since advertising is strictly taboo on EARN/BITNET, I must apologize for the
optimistic tone of the X-post from UseNet below. Yet, I believe that this
information is sufficiently meaningful from a public service point of view.
I haven't seen the first issue!

AUGUST, 1992

Engineers, scientists, psychologists, architects, executives, artists:
be on the lookout for another PRESENCE in August, 1992. That's about
the time MIT Press Journals will publish the second--spring, 1992--issue
of PRESENCE, the first quarterly for serious investigators of
teleoperators and virtual environments. You can expect from the spring
issue the same caliber of teleoperator and virtual environment research,
ideas, and applications that you enjoyed in the premier--winter,
1992--issue published last March.

The table of contents for the spring issue is being finalized.
Tentatively scheduled are:

* "Artists Explore Virtual Reality: The Bioapparatus Residency at
Banss Centre for the Arts" Warren Robinett and Michael Naimark

* "A Survey of Position Trackers" Kenneth Mayer, Hugh L. Applewhite,
Frank A. Biocca

* "An Electrorheological Tactile Display" G. J. Monkman

* Forum
"A Nose Gesture Interface Device: Extending Virtual Realities" (humor)
T. R. Henry, S. E. Hudson, A. K. Yeatts, B. A. Myers, S. Feiner

We anticipate PRESENCE will have an international circulation of
approximately 2,000, including: (1) electrical and mechanical engineers
concerned with teleoperators; (2) computer scientists, high-tech
artists, media people, and others interested in virtual environments;
and (3) psychologists involved in the study of human-machine interfaces
and sensorimotor/cognitive behavior.
