Join us as members of the Web3D Consortium are working to provide a technology that will provide for the interoperability between interactive 3D worlds to enable an open, unified Metaverse. Using Web3D and W3C standards, we can enable users to be represented in one Metaverse and move seamlessly in and out of others.

 Join your fellow 3D Graphics technologists at the in-person and online Web3D 2022 Confernce (2-4 November, 2022 in Paris, France as we discuss and share how Web3D innovations contribute to the Metaverse. This year's theme is "Connected 3D Universes" providing new visions on how an unified Metaverse may become a game-changer for the  future of 3D communication and the role Web3D technologies will play.
