With the enormous use of networks, many real-world activities are now being realized on the Internet. We proposed a complete virtual conference system (VCS) to handle all activities of real-world conferences. The VCS includes a virtual conference management system and a mobile virtual conference system. Video conferencing will be widely used in the future. With improvement of broadband network technologies, video conferencing has become possible in the global society. In the future, it will be feasible to use video conferencing technologies to organize international conferences. As a result, transportation and accomodation costs will be reduced. This research proposes a total solution for virtual conferencing. We use a mobile server/storage pre-broadcasting technique and a communication network optimization algorithm, which is based on a graph computation mechanism. The system also relies on a network bandwidth reservation facility and a multicasting control function. With the assistant of a conference management system, the system is able to support virtual conferencing.
