First International Workshop on Web3D Technologies in Learning, Education and Training


Call for papers

Important dates: 

Paper Submission: 19 August
Acceptance Notification: 10 September
Final Version: 20 September

Submission Site

New 3D Web technology (such as X3D, VRML, MPEG4, OpenHSF, Java3D,...) makes it possible to build interactive 3D virtual environments experienced through the Internet as educational and training platforms. Simulations allow designers to create extremely realistic virtual spaces where students can have experiences otherwise difficult or impossible for practical, financial or safety reasons. By combining 3D interactive environments, Web technologies, innovative user interfaces and pedagogical strategies, effective and widely available approaches to Learning, Education and Training can be proposed. Papers are solicited for a workshop to discuss and study all the issues involved in building these systems. Workshop topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Applications of Web3D technologies to learning, education and training
  • User Interfaces for learning, education and training in 3D virtual environments
  • Student Modeling for 3D virtual environments
  • Assessment of Learning in 3D virtual environments
  • Tools and techniques to build Web3D applications for learning, education and training
  • Implementation Issues
  • Future scenarios for Web3D in learning, education and training

The small workshop format (strictly limited to a maximum of 70 participants) makes it ideal for presenting and discussing directions for this important area of application of Web3D technology. To encourage people in participating to the workshop, we plan to have no registration fees.

Paper submission

Submit papers of length 4-6 pages in PDF format by the required deadline via the submission site. Papers have to be formatted according to the ACM SIG style. You can download templates and instructions from here.

Accepted papers will appear in the informal workshop proceedings.

Computers and Education Journal Authors of the best papers presented at the workshop will be invited to submit an extended and revised version for publication in a special issue of the Computers & Education Journal.

Workshop participation

The participation to the workshop is by invitation only. Invitation is granted to everyone submitting a paper. Those who wish to participate without submitting a paper are requested to send a one-page summary that describes their work and interest in the topics of the workshop to ranon@dimi.uniud.it by September 10th, 2004.
