“The VWBPE Conference is a completely virtual conference that is conducted using simulated environments. Participants experience the conference through a virtual reality type setting including conference rooms, theatres, exposition halls, meeting spaces, and other types of venues similar to a brick and mortar type conference”.
I really enjoyed VWBPE 2015 and my favourite moment was when Ebbe Linden did his live opening keynotes speech on education, Second Life and the next generation platform. There was a huge attendance this year and alot of useful information came out of the conference I thought.
I hope that Ebbe Linden and more Lindens will be able to take part in either one or more keynote talks during VWBPE 2016. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.
