3Dcamp for the University of Limerick on May 24th 2008

3DcampFollowing on from the excellent CreativeCamp in Kilkenny, 3Dcamp is the next in a line of themed Barcamps to hit Ireland and will take place in the Engineering Research Building at the University of Limerick on May 24th between 10-6pm.

Remember “BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from participants.” And it is of course open to all and free of charge.

3Dcamp will focus on virtual worlds (Second Life, the Metaverse), mirror worlds (Google Earth and Virtual Earth), mapping mashups, GPS, Location based Services (LBSs), haptics (eg. Wiimote hacks), 3D modelling (Blender, Sketchup) and all things 3D. Essentially the internet beyond the 2D browser.

Gabriela Avram, Bernie Goldbach and myself are three of the organizers so please feel free to ask any questions or make suggestions via comment or email. I’d also like to thank Michele Neylon and the Blacknight team for donating the domain and helping to setup the blog, and Ken McGuire for his wonderful design work.
