- Research Workshop - Making Sense of Virtual Worlds and User Driven Innovation (Denmark)
The research team of the Virtual Worlds Research project at Roskilde University is excited to announce a 3-day cross disciplinary research workshop entitled ‘Making Sense of Virtual Worlds and User Driven Innovation”, June 7th-9th 2010.
The key challenge of the workshop is to jointly explore meaning-making, sense-making processes and user-driven innovation in and/or about virtual worlds through particular case studies of empirical field(s) such as: new market dynamics and management, (and/or) social and cultural innovation, (and/or) knowledge construction.
The objective of this W3C workshop Augmented Reality on the Web is to provide a single forum for researchers and technologists to discuss the intersection of AR and Web technologies, particularly as used on the mobile platform, and to explore what role standardization should play for Open Augmented Reality. The workshop is closely associated with the MobEA series, now in its eighth year.
The annual ACM Web3D 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 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 of Web3D applications from mobile devices to high-end immersive environments.
Fifteenth in the series, the 2010 ACM International Web3D 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.
The Web3D 2010 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, or those preparing to enter college are encouraged to submit work themed on poetry using interactive 3D technology.
