With the enormous use of the networks, many real-world activities are 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 is a trend of future communications. With the improvement of broadband network technologies, video conferencing becomes possible in the global society. It is feasible to use video conferencing technologies to organize future international conferences. This research proposed a total solution toward virtual conferencing. We use a mobile server/storage pre-broadcasting technique, as well as a communication network optimization algorithm, which is based on a graph computation mechanism. With the assistant of a conference management system, the system is able to support virtual conferencing in the future academic society.
