The goal of the X3D Plugfest is to foster interoperability between X3D players. This is a regular event that brings content authors, authoring tool vendors and browser implementers together to work on interoperability issues. Consistent quality for X3D content helps everyone.
The X3D Plugfest was held at the Web3D Consortium Members Meeting, Wednesday 4 March 2009, at the NASA Ames research facility in Moffett Field, California.
