-- CALL FOR PAPERS - Deadline for submissions (2nd call): 27 April 2009  --






Algarve, Portugal, 19 to 21 June 2009





* Keynote Speaker (confirmed):Professor Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann, Director of
MIRALab / C.U.I., University of Geneva, Switzerland


* Conference background and goals

To make site architects aware of 3D communication.

To allow scientists to undertake experimental and predictive theorems on 3D

An IADIS meeting for those who want to push the web3D forward and benefit
from this!


This IADIS conference is meant both for web-site developers, advertisers,
usability evaluators and communication architects; you are 

all actors in the critical stage of adopting 3D “Immersion” or lose your
competitive edge.


This conference addresses important topics of today like education, health,
corporate image and make customers feel at home at your 

internet site. Virtual reality already proved its superiority in involving
the user. Indeed, medical, defense, architecture and even 

the car industry managed to increase learning effects and sensation.


If it comes to addressing a larger WWW-public, still critical mass needs to
be reached. You will not miss the next step in VR web 

integration. Keynote speeches, invited lecturers and workshop leaders will
bring you to the best technologies nowadays. The phase of 

risk and pioneering is left behind. t is just a matter of understanding the
problem and its opportunities; many cutting edge companies 

are now able to provide compact solutions. The only thing you have to decide
is: What spatial experience your user needs to have.


The important topics of today like education, health and energy all benefit
from web3D if present in their content. We want to discuss 

in Algarve, Portugal how to make the web3D one of the central topics of the
web content in the near future. This is clearly inevitable 

to happen, we just want to push it forward and benefit from that. 


The conference will help you to avoid obstacles from the past:

- Standards to be obeyed

- Bridging users’ imagination with your product reality

- Avoid lengthy navigations in VR

- Build upon existing 3D models 

- Capture both the gaming generation and who still believe in 2D documents

- And more to say from your experience


The summer conference in Algarve offers you a relaxed period, full of
inspiration and innovative plans; All the goodies that might get 

lost during hectic life. Let us help you to build upon success stories in
the recent past. 

- You are the expert in knowing why new media might not work. 

- We take the lead to convince yourself why it should work the coming years.


There is no way back; the web experiences will change visitors’ expectations

So let’s find together the break-through web3D recipes on the Algarve
conference, Portugal 19-21 June 2009! Please look to the total 

spectrum of thematic strands that you are entitled to join; indeed it is a
rich context for all who see the next step.
