Invited Talks presented at the Second Teton Conference, held at Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, USA, July 3-7, 1989

This book contains the proceedings of the sixth Eurographics Workshop on Vir tual Environments. The event took place from June 1 to June 2, 2000, in Am sterdam. We hope that readers will find these proceedings to be valuable, not only for virtual environment researchers, but also for practitioners developing or using virtual environment applications. We are glad to report that visibility of the workshop continues to expand and that virtual environment researchers and practitioners from allover the world are submitting papers. This year, 40 papers and case studies were submitted of which 20 were accepted. In addition, we are glad to see that the focus of the workshop is also expanding. We accepted 6 research papers on evaluation of virtual environments and there was a broad sampling of other topics. We would like to thank all those involved in organizing the symposium. In particular, thanks go to Mieke Brune who was in charge of the local organization. In addition, we want to thank the international program committee for their excellent, yet laborious, job in reviewing all submitted papers. The quality of the workshop is a reflection of the quality of the submitted papers and the quality of the reviewing process.


The Interstellar Medium in Galaxies is a collection of reviews based on research into the interstellar medium (ISM) in the Milky Way and other galaxies. The book is appropriate both as an auxiliary text for graduate courses and as a basis reference for professional scientists. The articles cover current observations and theories on the components of the ISM, and they extend our knowledge of the Milky Way to the different and exotic conditions in other galaxies. For example, the effects of supernovae, galactic fountains, cooling flows, interactions and collisions, active nuclei, magnetic fields, starbursts, and mass loss by evolved stars are all discussed in this volume. The text also includes short articles on the techniques of mass determination for the gaseous and dusty components of the ISM. These articles are based on invited talks given at the Second Wyoming Conference on the ISM, held during July 1989, in the Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, U.S.A.
