  • The Web3D Conference is the major venue where people from academia and industry get together to show state of the art technologies and share new ideas about 3D and the web. We believe it is a great opportunity to make your creative work visible in the right place. Winners will be announced during the conference and will have the opportunity to present their work to the audience in a short talk.

  • An X3D virtual stage (x3d file required, media files optional)
