SLCC 2013 under a new name includes OpenSim and other platforms

SL News Alert

Today Fleep Tuque posted a update today on her SL Google+ profile page relating to some new hints about future SL conventions. I’m happy to hear that OpenSim and other platforms will be included which should be very interesting indeed. In previous years at SLCC OpenSim and other platforms didn’t really get a mention and now they will in 2013+. This year SLCC 2012 was axed due to changes in the terms of the contract offered by Linden Lab this year.

New mention about future conventions

AvaCon is planning to expand the convention to include Opensim and other platforms in the coming years under a new name and we have volunteer staff positions open if you’re interested, see AvaCon, Inc. for more info.

This is good news that AvaCon is planning for future conventions and not axing them altogether. However it’s going to be apparently be under a new name instead of SLCC I think. Volunteer staff positions are OPEN which applications be found on the official AvaCon website.

Details about when, where, who and a new name have is yet to be announced.

SLCC 2012, still no details from AvaCon team

AvaCon have been silent lately on releasing any sort of details for SLCC 2012 for Second Life. SLCC is organized by the Second Life community and normally takes place in mid August every year. This year marks the 8th convention for SLCC and hopefully it’s going to happen.

Expect it to be on the weekend of the 11th or 18th of August 2012. It would be a big shame if the SLCC organisers say that it’s not happening this year. Roughly there’s around 5-6 weeks left to go and hopefully we will know either way soon.

Still no word from the following..

From what I’m hearing in recent weeks it’s likely to be hosted in Boston for SLCC 2012. Every year the conference will be alternating between San Francisco and Boston.

When I hear more I will blog about it. 🙂
