About the book

Mixed reality (MR) is an area of computer research dealing with the combination of real-world and computer-generated data (virtual reality), where computer-generated objects are visually mixed into the real environment and vice versa in real-time. MR combines real and virtual space (3D), it is interactive and real-time processed. MR can be created by using at least one of the following technologies: augmented reality and augmented virtuality. The MR system can be considered as the ultimate immersive system. MR systems are usually constructed as optical see-through (usually by using transparent displays) or video see-through. Implementation of MR systems is as marker systems (a real scene with special markers visually replaced with virtual objects in runtime) or markerless systems (processing of virtual objects is without markers). This book is about formal or practical information about MR, software or hardware MR solutions, and also about desktop or mobile MR platforms.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Gordan Tot

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
