June 5-7, 2017: 3D Web Technology - 22nd International Conference
2017 will be a historic year for 3D on the Web. We are seeing the explosion of WebVR and the potential of WebAR just around the corner. With WebGL now widely supported by default in modern browsers, tools such as X3D, X3DOM, Cobweb, three.js, glTF, and A-Frame VR are allowing nearly anyone to create Web3D content. Commercial game engines such as Unity and Unreal are starting to offer ways to export and publish directly to Web3D.
The conference will explore topics including: research on simulation and training using Web3D, enabling technology of web-aware, interactive 3D graphics from mobile devices up to high-end immersive environments, and the use of ubiquitous multimedia across a wide range of applications and environments. For example:
- 3D Printing and 3D Scanning
- CAD and Advanced Manufacturing
- Education and E-learning
- Collaboration and Annotation
- Tourism and Accessibility
- Gaming and Entertainment
- Creativity and Digital Art
- Public Sector (Open Government)
- Open Web Platform Integration
- Virtual Reality (VR)
- Mixed and Augmented Reality (MR/AR)
- Real Estate
- Cultural and Natural Heritage
- Medical, Telemedicine (eHealth)
- Transportation and Geospatial
- Industry Applications
