Web3D at SIGGRAPH 2023

Celebrate 50 Years of SIGGRAPH Conferences with Web3D Consortium
Sunday, 2023, August 6 - 8:00am to Thursday, 2023, August 10 - 6:00pm
Los Angeles + online

Join the Web3D Consortim at SIGGRAPH 2023 as we celebrate 28 years of breakthroughs in 3D Web technology along with 50 years of SIGGRAPH history. Attend our Birds of the feather(BOF) dicussions, bolstered by a community of innovators who have mapped the future of interactive, real-time 3D Graphics.

Cartographic Visualization BOF -  Monday, August 7, Noon - 1:30 PM in the ACM SIGGRAPH Village Theater.

ACM SIGGRAPH Cartographic (Carto) Visualization Bird of a Feather (BOF) session will highlight the future of digital mapping to support our daily lives. Presenters will demonstrate various solutions for interactive cartographic display and international mapping.

X3D4 is Web3D Ready - A major upgrade to the Extensible 3D (X3D) Graphics - Monday, 7 August 2023 - 3:00 PM  - 4:30 PM Pacific

Join us and learn more on how X3D4 has evolved to support current 3D technologies.  X3D4 provides close support for the HTML5 Recommendation, Khronos glTF Physically Based Rendering (PBR), Humanoid Animation (HAnim2), Web Audio API and MIDI2.  
X3D4 is the basis of multiple file encodings and programming language bindings. The X3D4 Architecture Specification is Web ready, used in many 3D applications, highly mature, implemented, functionally complete, and undergoing final editorial review for International Standards Organization (ISO).

3D Web Interoperability for the Metaverse - Tuesday, 8 August 2023 - 1:00 PM  - 3:00 PM Pacific

To make the Metaverse fully interoperable with the WWW and the Standards ecosystem we need new Metaverse capabilities. Join us in discussions on how to enable robust patterns for interoperable content authoring and delivery workflows across the Web and now to flourish on a strong foundation of Visual graphics, Interface capabilities, Web Architecture and Compression/streaming technologies.  Industry leaders, Standards development Organizations (SDO), Metaverse Standards Forum(MSF), and Browser developers will discuss how best to make the Metaverse fully interoperable with the WWW in order to enable new Metaverse capabilities to flourish on a strong foundation.provide a platform for Industry, Metaverse Standards Forum(MSF), Standards development Organizations (SDO) and Browser developers.

Disscusion topics also include formation and next steps for 3D Web Interoperability Exploratory Group at Metaverse Standards Forum (MSF) https://metaverse-standards.org
