Call For Proposals
The OpenSimulator Community Conference 2023 Call for Proposals is open! Share your excitement for your favorite virtual world at the OpenSimulator Community Conference 2023. In your proposal, tell us how it supports your art and creativity, education, technical discoveries, business, social life, and provides enriching experiences. We are looking for individuals or groups at the forefront who are shaping the Metaverse, hosting exciting activities, and changing our world to bring the WOWNESS. This year’s conference will focus on inspiring our imagination and energizing our community.
The December 9-10th conference features 30+ presentations and panels on the main stage, and in the evenings, music, art, and social events. We host a launch party on Friday, and after the conference, the community hosts social events and tours at Hypergrid destinations.
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.
