The 2011 Web3D ACM Conference

If you happen to be passing through Paris, France on Monday, Tuesday or even Wednesday the 22nd of June (which you likely are) then please stop by the 2011 Web3D ACM Conference.   It's a fascinating event with speakers, workshops and tutorials ranging from augmented/mixed reality, Collada and WebGL to Second Life artists.  Cocktails are even supplied by SIGGRAPH.  The first day starts off with a talk by multimedia artist Yann MinhHe has won several awards for his artistic creations in the fields of contemporary art and cyberculture12, Yann is a multimedia artist and writer of science fiction cyberpunk, founder of Noonautes, New cyberpunk movement, as director in video art and documentary covering TV, 3D artist, Director 3D, illustrator, filmmaker, writer and photographer, lecturer and teacher specializing in cyberculture and persistent worlds. It is often described as a cyberpunk NooConteur.  He will be presenting his work a 3D reconstruction table Velasquez, Las Meninas.

I will go on next and present my work Anna's Many Murders to those attending.  I will likely talk about virtual worlds as a new medium for artists.  About virtual identity and my personal movement Immersiva (based on creating immersive narratives in 3d environments).  I haven't actually written out my talk yet but shhhh don't tell.

The following day will have Tutsy Navarathna who will present his machinima "A Journey into the Metaverse,"  co-winner of the international competition MachinimUWA 3.  Later in the day on Tuesday Anne Astier will speak on his project Flower of Life. Following Anne it will be Patrick Moya to introduce the islands and the Cannes Carnival Moya Project.

The 2011 Web3D ACM Conference

The annual Web3D ACM Conference is a major event which unites researchers, developers, entrepreneurs, experimenters, artists and content creators in a dynamic learning environment Attendees share and explore methods of using, enhancing and creating new 3D Web and Multimedia technologies such as WebGL, X3D, VRML, Collada, MPEG family. U3D, Java3D and other technologies. The conference also focuses on recent trends in interactive 3D graphics, information integration and usability in the wide range ofWeb3D applications from mobile devices to high-end immersive environments.
Sixteenth in the series, the 2011 International Web3D ACM Conference will address a wide range of topics about 3D on the World Wide Web and on Multimedia Devices. Topics include: tools, object retrieval, rendering, modeling, distributed virtual environments, exposing large-scale databases, Web-wide human-computer interaction, and innovative applications (as Serious Games, E-Learning ...).

The 2011 Web3D ACM Conference will present the Web3D ART Exhibition. The Web3D ART spins the boundary between art and science. The Web3D ART group will present the Web3D ART retrospective as well as the exhibition of new Virtual Storied Worlds and Poetic Spaces creations. Students, recent graduates, orthose preparing to enter college are encouraged to submit work themed on poetry using interactive 3D technology.
The Web3D Consortium is a member-funded industry consortium committed to the creation and deployment of open, royalty-free standards that enable the communication of real-time 3D across applications, networks, and XML web services. The Consortium works closely with the ISO, MPEG and W3C standardization bodies to maximize market opportunities for its membership.
