Revolutionizing 3D: The 17th Annual Web3D Conference celebrates milestone of 3D innovation

Researchers, developers, and creators meet in Los Angeles to demonstrate interoperable 3D systems.

The Seventeenth annual International Web3D Conference ( will be held on Aug 4 and 5, 2012 at the LA Convention center, Los Angeles, California USA . The Web3D Conference is collocated with Siggraph 2012 and is co-sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH in cooperation with Eurographics, and the Web3D Consortium.

The conference is a major annual event that unites researchers, developers, and content creators in a dynamic learning environment to address a wide range of topics related to 3D multimedia on the Web. With peer-reviewed papers, workshops, tutorials, and panels, the Web3D Conference provides a potent opportunity to discuss advances in Web3D including the latest research activities and industry standards initiatives. More details on the program are available at:

At the Conference, industry leaders will demonstrate how to implement interoperable 3D systems like X3D for interactive 3D content. Come see and learn about these innovative X3D systems, especially new features in the ISO X3D Version 3.3.

X3D now offers declarative 3D in HTML5 as well as expressive volume visualization functionality. With multiple encodings and API bindings for a common scene graph model, it is compatible with the broad range of web and industry technologies. The data integration capacities and the rich set of componentized features of X3D are expanding and providing new value in areas such as Geospatial, Augmented Reality, CAD, and Medical applications. Such robust, cross-platform web applications prove once again that X3D is a compelling, interoperable expression for interactive networked virtual environments.

Following the Web3D Conference, at[SIGGRAPH 2012],  these latest X3D systems and innovations will be showcased at the Web3D Consortium booth(234), Birds-Of-a-Feather meetings and an exhibitor Tech Talk.
