The 29th International Conference on 3D Web Technology

September 25-27 in a hybrid format (in-person and online)

Guimarães, Portugal

Towards a Metaverse Workplace

The 29th International ACM Conference on 3D Web Technology (Web3D 2024) is a major annual event for the 3D Web community. Sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH, in cooperation with Web3D Consortium and supported by Eurographics.

This year’s conference will be hosted by the CCG/ZGDV Institute in Guimarães, on the Azurém Campus of the University of Minho, a research institute with a focus on applied research, in the fields of information and communication technologies. The purpose of the Conference is to study and share the principles of the latest advancements in interactive 3D technologies, including the Metaverse. The conference will bring together experts from around the world to discuss the latest research, development, and practices related to these technologies.

This year’s conference theme is “The Metaverse Workplace” an integration of virtual reality, augmented reality, and other immersive technologies into the traditional workplace, creating a digital environment to collaborate, communicate, and work together. As these technologies continue to advance, providing new ways for people to connect and collaborate remotely becomes crucial.

The Web3D community has a rich history of developing technologies that enable the creation and sharing of 3D worlds. Bringing together a diverse group of individuals to share innovative and influential thoughts on how the metaverse can revolutionize the future of communications. This includes topics such as 3D applications and services accessible through a wide range of devices, from simple mobile phones to more complex systems such as AR/VR headsets, and heavily populated virtual worlds, especially those connected through high-speed, low-latency networks. Don’t miss this opportunity to share your work, network with the experts and learn about new interactive 3D technologies.

Presented works will include a wide range of fields including, but not limited to, education, healthcare, e-commerce, informatics, cultural heritage and tourism, entertainment, mass media, military, construction, and emergent industrial 3D applications. The conference welcomes submissions from all relevant domains, as the goal is to create a rich tapestry of ideas on the future of environments in the metaverse.

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original, anonymized, and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Instructions for authors are available here:

Note: Full, short paper and poster, tutorial and workshop submission are accepted via EasyChair. If you have a submission in other categories, please send it to For questions about the program and conference topics can be sent as well to

The following paper categories are welcome:

  • Full or short papers presenting original work in 3D Web research and applications may be submitted in long or short form (up to 9 or 4 pages, EXCLUSIVE of the page(s) devoted to bibliographic references and short appendices). Do include a full citation list. Submissions will be peer-reviewed.
  • Posters present results of ongoing or recently completed work in 3D web research and application. The poster format offers the opportunity to interactively present and discuss interesting results to the Web3D community. Posters should be submitted in the form of abstracts (2 pages). Posters must be formatted using the document templates for conferences. Upon acceptance, the final revised poster is required in paper and electronic format. Printing and delivery of the poster is the author’s responsibility.
  • Tutorials are an opportunity to present introductory and advanced applications of 3D Web technologies to students and to experienced practitioners. Tutorial subjects can include practices for authoring interactive 3D scenes and using 3D graphics in diverse application areas. Especially welcome are tutorials in the use of open-source software and Web applications which can be presented in hands-on sessions at the conference. Submissions should include names, affiliations, and contact information, title of the tutorial, and a short summary including: the topic of interest, subjects covered, learning objectives, intended audience, prerequisites, and level of difficulty.
  • Workshops provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from both the Web and 3D multimedia communities to discuss and exchange positions on current and emergent 3D Web topics. Workshops may take the form of presentation sessions moderated by workshop organizers or open discussions of new knowledge on a specific topic of interest. Each session will last 90 minutes with presentations and discussions. Submissions should include names, affiliations, and contact information, title of the workshop, and a short summary including: the topic of the emergent technology and its use cases and challenges.
