Welcome to the OpenSimulator Community Conference 2014! 

Join us for the second annual OpenSimulator Community Conference 2014today at 7AM PST (-8 UTC) on the OSCC Grid!

Follow @opensimcc on Twitter and use the hashtags #oscc or #oscc14, and post your pictures and snapshots of the day on our Flickr group.

Conference Schedule

We have an exciting program lined up, with great keynote presentations, breakout sessions, social events, and plenty of Expo regions to explore over the next two days! Don’t miss the Keynote sessions, including the OpenSimulator Developer Panel on Saturday morning, Philip Rosedale from High Fidelity on Saturday afternoon, and Steve LaValle from Oculus VR on Sunday morning!

Conference Streams

We will be live streaming the conference through Ustream, this year with no ads thanks to our Crowdfunder contributors!  See the online schedule to grab the streaming link from the top of any session description.

Connecting to the Conference Grid

The OSCC Grid Login URI is: http://cc.opensimulator.org:8002

See the Login Info page for instructions and more information about how to connect to the grid. If you have a Local Account and have forgotten your password, use the Forgot Your Password link to reset it.

Optimize Your Viewer

For the best experience, make sure to enable Streaming Media & Music, and turn on AUTOPLAY for Parcel and Prim media. We also recommend turning your Draw Distance settings down to a reasonable level. The lower your Draw Distance, the better your viewer performance will be. See the FAQs for more information.

OSCC Zone Groups Access

When you log in, you will land on your designated Landing Zone region 1, 2, 3, 4, or the HyperGrid (HG) Landing Zone. Check the rotating banner in your Landing Zone to see the corresponding Keynote region that you should use for keynote presentations. You will only be able to access the Keynote region that matches your Landing Zone unless you are a presenter. See the Online Map for an overhead view of the conference grid.

Attending Sessions

When you arrive at a Keynote region or Track region please sit in a chair ASAP during the sessions! The conference grid will perform best if everyone takes a seat in the presentation areas. All of the conference presentations will take place via parcel streaming media, so we recommend that you set your viewer to AUTOPLAY parcel and prim media. In-world voice will be disabled in those areas, so please use text chat for socializing, networking, and asking questions of the speakers.

Expo Zones

The conference would not have been possible without the financial support of our Sponsors and Crowdfunders, so please be sure to visit their exhibits and booths in the Expo Zones to thank them! Explore five regions of terrific booths and fun activities provided by our sponsors and Crowdfunders – and invite your friends who didn’t get a conference ticket! The Expo Zones are open to public HyperGrid visitors!

OpenMetaQuest Game

Play the OpenMetaQuest to test your knowledge about the open Metaverse – and have fun! Your mission, should you be brave enough to accept it, is to find 12 hexagon-shaped game tokens across 7 sims while matching your MetaKnowledge for prizes. Look for the Adventure Hippo to begin your journey and win terrific prizes!

Technical Difficulties

Although we hope everything goes smoothly, it is always possible for there to be technical difficulties during the conference program. If this happens, we appreciate your patience and understanding while we work to resolve the issue.

If you are disconnected from the grid, please wait a moment or two, check the conference Twitter stream @opensimcc for updated information, and then try to log back in. We will do our best to resolve issues quickly and stick to the conference schedule. No matter what happens, we’re sure the day will hold plenty of surprises!


A tremendous thank you to all of our speakers, sponsors, crowdfundrs, volunteer staff, streaming team, and attendees! We hope you enjoy the conference program and we’ll look forward to seeing you in-world or on the web today!
