Update: Paper submission deadline extended until 30th March 2009

A new wave of interactive 3D applications rises from the World Wide Web. New technologies are emerging and existing technologies are evolving to enable the third dimension in web browsers. This also leads to the appearance of a new generation of consumers and producers of 3D content in the new Read-Write Web environment.

14th in the series, the Web3D 2009 International Symposium will address this wide range of topics covering 3D hypermedia on the web. The annual Web3D Symposium is a major event, which unites researchers, developers, experimenters, and content creators in a dynamic learning environment. Attendees share and explore methods of using, enhancing, and creating new 3D web and multimedia technologies, such as X3D, VRML, COLLADA, Croquet, MPEG4, Java3D, and Canvas3D. The symposium will also address new trends such as interactive 3D graphics applications on mobile devices.

Web3D 2009 will take place at Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics (IGD) in Darmstadt (Germany) close to Frankfurt / Main. The conference is sceduled one week after EUROVIS 2009 (Eurographics/IEEE Symposium on Visualization, June 10 - 12 2009) in Berlin, Germany. With only a weekend in-between this is a chance for oversees visitors to attend both conferences on one trip. There will be the X3D Earth Workshop on technical strategies for scaling up on Monday June 15 and the WG-11 & DICOM Workshop on Thursday June 18 at IGD.
