Virtual Museums

The term "Virtual Museum" is still ambiguous, since it includes many and sometime contradicting definitions. The goal of project is to create a common language, define a semantic starting rational for the domain, through discussions that will continue and be revised over the duration of the project four years  (i.e which levels of interactivity and immersion are required to classify a specific Virtual Museum  in one category?). The Network’s goal is to identify the categories and types of Virtual Museums,  that clarifies the core concept of a virtual museum, and related concepts in the virtual museum domain.  Clarifying these core concepts we believe will serve to  avoid lexical ambiguity and will establish a  common language to be shared by all .
