PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS
The 10th International Conference on 3D Web Technology
Sponsored by the Web3D Consortium
In association with ACM SIGGRAPH and Eurographics
March 29-April 1, 2005, Bangor, Wales, UK
Paper Submission: November 12, 2004
Workshop & Tutorial Proposal: October 31, 2004
Notification: December 20, 2004
Camera-Ready Submission: January 12, 2005
Tenth in the series, the international Web3D 2005 Symposium will focus on every aspect of 3D technologies on the Internet, ranging from languages, tools and high performance 3D graphics to human-computer interaction issues. Particular themes of Web3D 2005 will be the latest mobile applications, and the use of Web3D in medical applications.
The annual Web3D Symposium is a major event which unites researchers, developers, experimenters, and content creators in a dynamic learning environment. Attendees share and explore methods of using, enhancing, or creating new 3D Web technology such as X3D, VRML, MPEG4, OpenHSF, and Java3D.
Authors are invited to submit their work for careful review by the International Program Committee. Both research and applications papers are of interest to Web3D 2005.
All content must be innovative and meaningful to the advancement of 3D technologies on the Web. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* 3D graphics for wireless PDAs and cellular phones
* Web3D content for medical education, training and simulation
* Animated humanoids and complex reactive characters
* Computer Aided Design technology and methods for lossless cross-application data exchange
* Geometry/object behaviours in Web3D settings
* High performance 3D graphics for distributed environments and tele-operation systems
* Innovative user interface paradigms for navigating real-time 3D graphics environments and Web3D worlds
* Interaction methods for Web-based 3D graphics systems
* Methods for designing, representing, interacting with, and visualizing complex geometry and structure
* Multimodal user interaction in Web3D worlds
* Specifications, languages, or abstractions for specifying 3D geometry and their behaviours
Submission of WORKSHOP and TUTORIAL ideas are also welcome.
Submit papers of up to 9 pages (including figures and references) in PDF format by 11:59pm GMT, November 12, 2004 via the Submissions Web Page. Papers must be formatted using the ACM SIGGRAPH document templates. After acceptance, the final revised paper is required also in electronic form.
For Workshop and Tutorial proposals, please read the instructions on the site and email the Conference Chairs at [log in to unmask] to discuss your idea. The deadline for proposals is October 31, 2004.
Accepted papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings,
published by ACM Press.
