METAVERSE SUMMIT 2007
Join the Metaverse Summit to explore and shape the future of the virtual and 3D Web
"What happens when video games meet Web 2.0? When virtual worlds meet geospatial maps of the planet? When simulations get real and life and business go virtual? When you use a virtual Earth to navigate the physical Earth, and your avatar becomes your online agent? What happens is the metaverse." (Smart, J.M., Cascio, J. and Paffendorf, J., Metaverse Roadmap Overview, 2007)
The web is moving from its 2D beginnings towards its virtual and 3D future. The Metaverse Summit will consist of two days featuring interactive sessions revolving the next generation of the internet - the Metaverse - in all its manifestations:
- Augmented Reality
- Mirror Worlds
- Virtual Worlds
The rapid development and exploration of 3D immersive environments is changing the way people communicate, collaborate, work and live. It is bringing about significant businesses as well as social and technological opportunities, challenges and questions. This unique event will bring together business leaders, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, technologists, futurists, and industry participants to spend two days discussing current and emerging social, economic and technological trends and issues around the 3D-enabled web, virtual worlds, immersive networks, and ubiquitous information.
