      I've enjoyed the papers that you posted. Hope that Immersive Ed paper
      goes well!

      Below is an assorted bibliography that I assembled last year.
      However it isn't completely up to date (the newest reference is only
      from 2008), and is probably missing a number of key papers that have
      escaped me for the moment but it should get you started.
