The goal of this special issue is to present a comprehensive multi-disciplinary view of advanced digital human models for social interaction on the Internet. The emphasis of the special issue is on digital human models with novel and exceptional abilities. Manuscripts must therefore contain appropriate and interesting theoretical, experiential, and application self-views and comparative-views of digital human models with novel and exceptional abilities. The aim is to show that digital human models can be used to simplify user interfaces, increase communication, and improve information transfer during social interaction on the Internet.Subject Coverage
