Call for Proposals
The OpenSimulator Community Conference 2017 Call for Proposals is now open! The OpenSimulator Community Conference 2017 wants everyone to know what is exciting about our favorite social 3D platform. We are looking for those individuals or groups on the forefront who are shaping the Metaverse, hosting exciting activities, and changing the game to bring the WOWNESS. This year’s conference will focus on the visions for the future and the evolution of the platform. The conference features a concentrated series of talks on December 9th-10th on the main stage featuring Creative, Education, Technical, and Experiential topics.
The speaker sessions offer 20-minute presentations to engage the mind while the community-sponsored tours, and on the Expo regions, content give-aways and Hypergrid explorations take attendees to faraway places. We are particularly interested in speakers who dramatically tell the story of their work and employ great 3D examples as props and graphics.
The organizers encourage presentations that span current innovations and activities, performance artistry, educational simulations, innovative business cases or have a publication or track record of real world use.
