The 17th ACM International Web3D Conference will address a wide range of research topics related to Web-based 3D Graphics. The Conference will be held in Los Angeles in conjunction with SIGGRAPH 2012 on August 4-5, 2012.
The annual ACM Web3D Conference is a major event that gathers researchers, developers, entrepreneurs, experimenters, artists, and content creators in a dynamic environment. Attendees can share and explore methods of using, enhancing, and creating new 3D Web and Multimedia technologies, such as WebGL and HTML5 (which is a hot topic in Computer Graphics), Flash/ Stage 3D, X3D, COLLADA, and the MPEG family. The conference highlights capabilities and trends in interactive 3D graphics across a wide range of applications and supports research from mobile devices up to high-end immersive environments.
Topics may include, but are not limited to:
Modeling, processing, analysis and rendering of complex geometry, structure, and behaviors
3D search, shape matching and indexing
Rendering algorithms and standardization and visualization of large data sets
Interaction methods for online 3D content
Interactive 3D graphics for mobile devices
Mixed and Augmented Reality (including standardization aspects)
Agents, animated humanoids, and complex reactive characters
Remote rendering and streaming
Stereo and multi-view visualization of 3D graphic interfaces
High-performance 3D graphics for distributed environments, tele-presence, tele-operation, and 3D broadcasting
Web, multimedia and standards integration and interoperation.
Authors are also invited to submit advances in the above technologies applied to multimedia applications in:
Automotive, Security, Transport Industries
Life sciences and healthcare
Geospatial modeling and digital cities
Public sector and tourism
Cultural heritage and E-learning.
