The International Conference on Advanced Research in Virtual and Rapid Prototyping (VRAP), organised every two years since 2003, has been designed to be a major forum for the Scientific exchange of multi disciplinary and inter-organisational aspects of virtual and physical prototyping and related areas. VRAP aims at making a significant contribution for further development of these fields. In 2007, as in the two previous editions, we gathered participants from more than 20 countries. The Conference carries out a full paper submission. Selected papers will be published in special issues of International Journals.
