Created intentionally or spontaneously, cyberworlds are information spaces and communities that immensely augment the way we interact, participate in business, and receive information throughout the world. Cyberworlds seriously impact our lives and the evolution of the world economy by taking such forms as social networking services, 3D shared virtual communities, and massively multiplayer online role-playing games.
The current volume is devoted to the topic of security in virtual worlds. It is comprised of 14 excellent papers selected from 75 submissions to "The International Conference on Cyberworlds 2012", held in Darmstadt, Germany, September 25 - 27, 2012. The articles appearing in this special issue are revised and extended versions of a selection of papers presented at CW 2012. The papers were selected based on reviewers' comments, on the quality of the oral presentations, and the conference delegates' feedback.
