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.
