The 25th International ACM Conference on 3D Web Technology

June 24-26, 2020, Seoul, South Korea

Sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH in cooperation with Web3D consortium and Korea Computer Graphics Society

The 25th International ACM Conference on 3D Web Technology (Web3D 2020) is supported by ACM SIGGRAPH in cooperation with the Web3D Consortium and the Korea Computer Graphics Society and will address an extensive range of research, development, and practices related to web-based interactive 3D applications. Web3D 2020 will be held in Seoul, South Korea at Korea University from June 24-26, 2020.

The goal of the conference is to share innovative and creative ideas around the development of 3D applications for a wide range of 3D environments, including web, mobile, and virtual and augmented reality (XR). Work related to various application domains, including education, healthcare, e-commerce, informatics, cultural heritage/tourism, entertainment, mass media, military, and construction, and many others, is welcome.

This year’s theme, 3D for the Hyperconnected World, emphasizes the increasingly global scope and wide ranging impact of current and future high quality 3D content over high speed networks. The Web3D community seeks to foster and support the increasing development, use, and utility of 3D content over high speed networks by and for application developers, domain experts, and end users. This includes the creation of interactive 3D content, robust and versatile 3D content representation and delivery standards, and presentation and interaction techniques that support the development of user-friendly web-based 3D applications.
New digital industry that integrates with VR and AR, 3D Web, intelligent and semantic 3D, digital twinning, and big data in smart cities and environments presents challenges in the world. Smart 3D environments require information in the real world to be managed and coupled with 3D technology. Web3D is now at the center of the 3D integrated world. Web3D technology has an over 20-year history, going back to the development of VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language). Since then, X3D (Extensible 3D) and H-Anim (Humanoid Animation) have been developed and are now in widespread use. Advancements in Web3D technology have led to the point of 3D digital twinning environments integrated with the real world.
