VWBPE 2018: VRevolutions Call for Proposals


VWBPE 2018

The VWBPE committee is now calling for proposals for next year’s annual conference which will be taking place from 15th to 17th March 2018. The committee “seeks submissions of presentation proposals along with proposals for exhibits and immersive experiences (pre- and post-conference virtual experiences).”

Proposals for exhibits and immersive experiences are now open. Here are the three formats for presentation proposals:

  • Spotlight Presentations (1 hour)
  • Hands on Technology Workshops (90 minutes)
  • Compass Points Roundtable Discussions (1 hour)

VWBPE18 VRevolutions

We are living in a disruptive age, where technology innovation has changed they way we live, the way we learn, and the way we interact. Innovation isn’t just a word used by scientists and entrepreneurs, it has come to describe our ever changing society. VRevolutions is your time to be part of that change.

VWBPE is an ecosystem of digital spaces. While the conference is hosted in Second Life, our conference features a variety of virtual and digital spaces. To present at VRevolutions, think outside the virtual space and consider how multiple available technologies and devices redefine what it means to work, create, and learn “virtually”. The VRevolution is about doing what scares you, what excites you, breaking and creating new paradigms.

At VRevolutions, VWBPE welcomes the multifaceted communities that contribute to and expand best practices in digital and virtual spaces to support practice, creation, and learning. Regardless of the community you represent, your proposal should consider how it contributes and expands the knowledge base for innovative and revolutionary change through the increasingly complex landscape of digital technology.

Call for Proposals

The VWBPE committee seeks submissions of presentation proposals along with proposals for exhibits and immersive experiences (pre- and post-conference virtual experiences). The call for proposals encompasses these three categories, with further details about each in the section below.

There are seven tracks and three formats. When formulating your proposal, we encourage you to consider the current theme of the conference, which in 2018 is “VRevolutions”.

We invite proposal submissions from a broad range of communities, such as, and not limited to, the following:

  • Educators and Trainers
  • Artists, Designers and Builders
  • Advocacy and NonProfit
  • Support and Help Communities
  • Entertainers and Performers
  • Coders, Scripters, and System/IT Analysts
  • Business and Entrepreneurs

11 years in Second Life


It’s my 11th Rez Day on Halloween 🙂

Today (31st October) officially marks my 11th rezday in Second Life since I signed up. It feels so long ago now since I walked around orientation island / welcome area learning the basics. It’s been a long exciting journey for sure with so many happy memories along the way.

Second Life is still my favourite virtual world after 11 years because nothing comes closer at the moment. I still log in regularly, attend events, volunteer and blog a lot. I have met so many great friends and some amazing people in 11 years. Thanks so much! 🙂

Since October 2006 i’ve taken 26, 000+ snapshots on Flickr and I have loved sharing my unique virtual journey through the years with everyone. I’m looking forward to more exciting adventures ahead.

Another big step for bugs bunny lol

Happy Halloween 🙂

Looks spooky and scary

Looks great 🙂

 

Happy Halloween 2017 🙂
