Announcing the San Diego VRML Workshop

December 13th-15th, 1995 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, La Jolla CA.

This workshop will provide a forum for exchanging ideas and information
regarding VRML. The VRML 1.0 specification has been released, and while
its a good start, it is clear that there are a lot of issues left
unaddressed. By the time of this workshop various groups will have had
a chance to implement browsers based on VRML 1.0 and to discover those
devilish details required to actually make a VRML-based browser work.

Most of all, this workshop will foster face-to-face discussions, and a
chance to show and discuss works in progress (demo, demo, demo).

Potential topics:
VRML: where do we go from here
Keeping VRML standard (avoiding splintering off with everyone's
pet extensions)
Implementation details
VRML authoring tools
Applications of VRML (e.g. scientific visualization)
Handling big data (e.g. culling, caching, and Level of detail management)
Multi-user VRMLs environments (combining VRML and MUDs)
Interfacing HTML with existing applications
Higher level behaviors (e.g. collisions and gravity)
Interaction & navigation

I wanted to let people know about this workshop, so that they can put
it on their calenders. I'll be sending out detailed information soon.
This will include an official call for participation.

Watch this space for more details. soon!!!
