3Dcamp returning to University of Limerick on 6th June

Last year, 3Dcamp received words of appreciation from the majority of participants. Good talks, a relaxed atmosphere, generous sponsors and an interested crowd. We even managed to have gorgeous weather! We missed only one small detail: 24 May 2008 was the day of the Heineken cup final, and Limerick became a sort of rugby Mecca…

This year we've picked up a date in June, to avoid competing with other events: 6th of June 2009.

Same venue: the Engineering Research Building at the University of Limerick.

3Dcamp is a themed Barcamp which will focus on Presence – both virtual and mobile. In other words - 

  • virtual worlds (Second Life, Opensim, the Metaverse),
  • mirror worlds (Google Earth and Virtual Earth),
  • 3D modelling (Blender, Sketchup),
  • mapping mashups, GPS,
  • location based services (LBSs),
  • haptics, augmented toys (eg. Wiimote hacks, Nabaztag),
  • ambient intelligence,
  • interactive art installations
  • …and all things 3D.

Essentially, the internet beyond the 2D browser.

Everybody is welcome, from users to entrepreneurs, developers, interaction designers, sociologists, artists and business people. And attendance is free of charge.

As there are only 4 weeks left until the event, we need all your support in getting the word out there!

We'll use the #3Dcamp hashtag on Twitter. We also have a Twitter account - make sure you follow us!

More to come in the following days…
