The first OpenSimulator Community Conference will be held on 7th and 8th September 2013 in an OpenSim virtual world facility with free attendance through an avatar and a schedule that tries to allow for world wide participation.
Attendance will be free but limited to 200 participants. Free attendance registration opens on 17th June via the link above, so be ready for that if you wish to attend. Research track papers are now invited for submission via:
There will be a wide range of tracks in areas from the arts and entertainment, through education and research to business and government applications. Social events are also planned around the event. More details on submissions to all tracks is available via:
I now encourage anyone interested to submit a paper (max 8 pages 12pt) for the academically orientated conference style research track (with review by an experienced international technical programme committee) or perhaps to the education track which encourages experience report style submissions. In both tracks posters or shorter papers can also be proposed.
Research Track Co-Chairs:
- Mic Bowman (Intel Research)
- Crista Lopes (University of California, Irvine)
- Austin Tate (AIAI, University of Edinburgh)
Papers can be submitted before 1st July 2013 via the OSCC13 Research Track Submission Form which uses the Easy Chair on-line conference management system to manage the submissions and review processes. Details of the requirements and due dates are on the OSCC13 Conference Research Track Web Page.
