Due to the rapidly increasing usage of personal mobile devices and the need of executing Collaborative Virtual Environments (CVEs) applications in environments that have no previous network infrastructure, Mobile Collaborative Virtual Environments (MCVEs) systems will become ubiquitous in the future. In such systems, the authors enable users to act and interact in three dimensional worlds shared through their Mobile devices in an Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET). A handful of interesting MCVE applications have been developed in a variety of domains, ranging from multiplayer games to virtual cities, virtual shopping malls, and various training simulations (i.e. military, emergency preparedness, Education, Medicine, etc.).
