Web3D 2007 Preliminary Program
Keynote: Dr. Kari Pulli is a lead developer of mobile computing graphics technologies such as OpenGL ES, M3G, and Open VG. He is a Research Fellow at Nokia Research Center in Palo Alto where he heads a research team. During 2004-2006 he was Visiting Scientist with the Computer Graphics Group at MIT. Dr. Pulli gave recent courses on OpenGL ES and M3G at SIGGRAPH 2005 and Eurographics 2006.

Twelfth in the series, the Web3D 2007 International Symposium will address a wide range of topics on 3D and Multimedia on the Web. Topics include 3D virtual worlds, languages for 3D communications, tools, rendering techniques, human-computer interaction, mobile devices and innovative applications. As in previous years, this event will be sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH and held in cooperation with both EuroGraphics and the Web3D Consortium. The annual Web3D Symposium is a major event that unites researchers, developers, experimenters, and content creators in a dynamic learning environment. Attendees share and explore methods of using, enhancing, or creating new 3D Web and multimedia technologies, such as (but not limited to) X3D, VRML, MPEG4, MPEG7, U3D, COLLADA, Acrobat3D and Java3D. The symposium will also focus on recent trends such as interactive 3D graphics and applications on mobile devices.

Interactive 3D graphics for PCs, PDAs and cellular phones
Innovative 3D graphics applications for Web/Multimedia in industry, science, medicine, and education
User-interface paradigms and interaction methods for real-time 3D graphics & virtual environments
Animated humanoids and complex reactive characters
High-performance 3D graphics for distributed environments and tele-operation systems, including immersive 3D virtual worlds
Integration and interoperation with other Web/Multimedia standards, including SVG, SMIL and Semantic Web technologies
Methods for modeling and rendering complex geometry, structure and behaviors.

About the Web3D Consortium:

The Web3D Consortium is a non-profit, international standards organization that originally spearheaded the development of the VRML 1.0 and 2.0 specifications. Today, the Web3D Consortium is utilizing its broad-based industry support to continue developing the X3D specification, for communicating 3D on the Web, between applications and across distributed networks and web services. Through well-coordinated efforts with the ISO and W3C, and now the OGC, the Web3D Consortium is maintaining and extending its standardization activities. Visit the Web3D Consortium at
