The third workshop on Virtual Environments took place on February 19-20 in conjunction with the annual IMAGINA conference in Monte Carlo. The workshop asked for contributions to cover coexistence, communication and collaboration in Virtual Environments. Nineteen contributions were selected by an international programme committee which additionally invited J. Nomura MEC, Japan and J. Kent SGI, US for talks on applications of virtual environments in Japan and to discuss the VRML relationship to virtual environments. Revised versions of the workshop presentations are included in this book. the first group of four papers from Austria the UK, Germany and Sweden discusses VE system design and architecture issues as well as experience with novel programming stile for virtual worlds. Mixed reality in a teleconferencing and in a telepresence experiments are reported from Germany and from Sweden. An algorithm session introduced to several techniques for virtual environments, such as the quick elimination of polytopes from Hongkong, camera based tracking and morphing from Germany. On the second workshop day, human factors and crowd simulation were presented by Swiss and French researchers.
