Web3D 2017:  22nd International Conference on 3D Web Technology

Sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH in Co-operation with Web3D Consortium

Date: 5-7 June 2017
Location: Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia
Website:  <http://web3d2017.org> http://web3d2017.org

The 22nd International Conference on 3D Web Technology (Web3D 2017)
continues to address an extensive range of research, development, and
practice related to Web-based 3D Graphics.

2017 will be a historic year for 3D on the Web. We are seeing the explosion
of WebVR and the potential of WebAR just around the corner. With WebGL now
widely supported by default in modern browsers, tools such as X3D, X3DOM,
Cobweb, three.js, glTF, and A-Frame VR are allowing nearly anyone to create
Web3D content. Commercial game engines such as Unity and Unreal are starting
to offer ways to export and publish directly to Web3D. 

The conference will explore topics including: research on simulation and
training using Web3D, enabling technology of web-aware, interactive 3D
graphics from mobile devices up to high-end immersive environments, and the
use of ubiquitous multimedia across a wide range of applications and
environments. For example:

*        Virtual Reality (VR)

*        Mixed Augmented Reality (MAR)

*        Cultural and Natural Heritage

*        Medical, Telemedicine (eHealth)

*        Transportation and Geospatial

*        Industry Applications

*        Archival Digital Publications 

*        Human Animation, Motion Capture

*        3D Printing and 3D Scanning

*  CAD and Advanced Manufacturing

*  Education and E-learning

*  Collaboration and Annotation

*  Tourism and Accessibility

*  Gaming and Entertainment

*  Creativity and Digital Art

*  Public Sector (Open Government)

*  Open Web Platform Integration

*  Novel Capabilities


For the 2017 conference edition, we welcome works addressing the emerging
opportunities and research of portable, integrated information spaces over
the web including, but not limited to: 

*        Emerging WebVR and WebAR capabilities.

*        Scalable, interoperable representations and modeling methods for
complex geometry, structure, and behaviors.

*        3D similarity search and matching, 3D search interfaces,
sketch-based approaches.

*        Visualization and exploration of 3D object repositories.

*        Scientific and medical visualization, medical simulation and

*        3D content creation, analysis tools and pipelines, and 3D

*        Annotation, metadata, hyperlinking and Semantic Web for 3D objects
and scenes. 

*        Generative and example-based shape modeling and optimization.

*        3D scanning, 3D reconstruction 3D digitization, and 3D printing.

*        Streaming and rendering of large-scale models, animations, and
virtual worlds.

*        Progressive 3D compression and model optimization.

*        Collaborative operation and distributed virtual environments.

*        Web-wide human-computer interaction and 3D User Interfaces.

*        3D City Models, Building Information Modeling & Geo-visualization.

*        Mixed and Augmented Reality (MAR) including standardization

*        Web3D and associated APIs, toolkits, and frameworks.

*        Novel Web3D interaction paradigms for mobile/handheld applications.

*        Web based interaction techniques including gesture, pen and voice.

*        Agents, animated humanoids, and complex reactive characters.

*        Motion capture for composition and streaming of behaviors and

*        Web3D for social networking.

*        Script algorithms and programming for lightweight Web3D.

*        Network transmission over mobile Internet.

*        Server-side 3D engines and cloud-based gaming.

*        Architecture support by large Web3D applications for CAD tools and
solid modelers.

*        Data analysis and intelligent algorithms for big Web3D data.

*        Interactive Web 3D applications in all applications and sectors.

Papers Submission Instructions:  Deadline extended - 27 February 2017

Authors are invited to submit full papers (up to 9 pages, including figures
and references) or short papers (up to 4 pages, including figures and
references) in PDF format via the Submission Site:

Papers must be formatted using the document templates for conferences
sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH (see
http://www.siggraph.org/learn/instructions-authors). All submissions will be
peer-reviewed for quality and contribution by the conference International
Program Committee. 

Poster Submission Instructions: Deadline extended - 27 February 2017

Posters present results of ongoing work in relevant areas of Web3D research
and application. The poster format offers the opportunity to interactively
present and discuss interesting results to the Web3D community. We
particularly encourage contributions that take advantage of the nature of
the poster space to present and raise awareness of the work in effective and
imaginative ways. 

Authors submitting posters should provide a poster abstract that gives a
concise description of the main idea, its findings, and next steps. The
abstract should include supportive data, and a brief discussion of the most
relevant related work from the literature and state where the presented work

Submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee for contribution and
interest to conference topics. For more information, please see the poster
submission instructions at

Tutorial and Workshop Submission Instructions:  Deadline 4 April 2017

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are
encouraged. As in previous years, Web3D 2017 will also feature a number of
co-located Workshop sessions. The series of Workshops and Tutorials are
intended to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from both the
Web and 3D graphics communities to discuss and exchange positions on current
and emergent 3D Web topics.

H-Anim Competition Deadline: 1 May 2017


This annual competition is dedicated to showing how H-Anim and X3D Graphics
standards can be used for creating music videos.  This competition is
organized by the Korean Standards Association (KSA), Web3D Consortium, and
Korean National Radio Research Agency (RRA) with support by the Korea
Society for Standards and Standardization (SSS). Each entry is judged on the
following: originality, creativity of 3D character animation, creativity of
the virtual stage, use of H-Anim ISO/IEC 19774 specification (LOA1, LOA2,
LOA3) for character models, and use of the X3D Graphics capabilities.
