People spend a long time every single day using visual technologies in their homes, at work, for entertainment, or for their education. Visual technologies are omnipresent in the development, execution, and assessment of all kinds of digital projects and solutions, and they are changing the rules of customer experience and revolutionizing humanity and business.
The recent eclosion of a great variety of affordable and accessible media equipment and digital applications, as well as methodologies and approaches, has enabled new types of knowledge, especially in science. The intersection of these technologies, the new environments, and their uses offers an opportunity to explore how they are interacting and taking into account all types of sustainability assumptions.
This Special Issue will cover how visual technologies can add, improve, or assess the sustainability of digital products, experiences, and environments, considering a wide range of variables and indicators. The “Visual Technologies for Sustainable Digital Environments” Special Issue will address a broad range of topics that should help readers, researchers, teachers, and professionals to understand both generic and specific approaches related with the representation of digital data and spaces with a large range of visual technologies, such as virtual or augmented reality, serious games, mobile devices, artificial intelligence, haptic devices, etc.
