📢 Important Note on:


As we enter 2022, when the “Metaverse” is blossoming in the POST COVID-19, the JVWR is going into a refocusing process that started in our open forum consultation last year. In the meantime, we are not open for new submissions — we will update the website as soon as we begin accepting papers again.

Please note – we are readjusting the backend.
