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

BURN2 2017: Radical Ritual Opening Day In Second Life


BURN2 2017 officially opens to the public today at 10am SLT over at the five Burning Man regions in Second Life. The event runs from Saturday 21st to Sunday 29th October and this year the theme is Radical Ritual. This year there will be live music, art, fire dancing and so much more to experience.

BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival in real life and every year the annual event gets even more amazing. Don’t miss the Burn of The Man on Saturday 28th October and The Temple Burn on Sunday 29th October 2017.

“Welcome Home!” 
We say to Burners and friends! The spectacle of the year is soon to begin, infused with the theme of Radical Ritual, in which you will see interpretations of every kind. 

“Reinventing ritual in our post post-modern world – disregarding assertions of belief and focus on the immediate experience of play. Play can free us to envision truths of which we have no proof or warrant, and breaks down the distinction that divides belief from make-believe. Whole-hearted, creative play induces self-surrender to experience that is beyond the scope of reasoned thought.”

The playa is filled with camps of every sort, and showing such a range of ritual expressions. Stages are erected, decorated and lighted, art cars and mutant vehicles tested across the sims. Burners from near and far are gathering and cleaning their various goggles, masks and flashlights in preparation for any sort of weather. The Lamplighters are checking their lamps, the Rangers testing their radios, and the dusty air is rich with tunes of anticipation and excitement. Performers and artists continually add more gifts and mischievously fun touches to their camps.
