Commission européenne : CORDIS : Actualités : Quatrième conférence mondiale sur l'apprentissage expérientiel dans les mondes virtuels, Prague, République tchèque

La quatrième conférence mondiale sur l'apprentissage expérientiel dans les mondes virtuels (Fourth Global Conference Experiential Learning in Virtual Worlds) aura lieu du 22 au 24 mars à Prague, en République tchèque. 

L'intérêt pour les mondes virtuels en 3D et leur application pour l'apprentissage a considérablement augmenté ces dernières années Ils jouent un rôle de plus en plus important tant dans un contexte social que professionnel et doivent relever de nombreux défis au niveau de notre vision de comment nous travaillons, enseignons, apprenons et communiquons. 

Le principal objectif de cette conférence est d'accroître notre compréhension de l'apprentissage expérientiel dans les mondes virtuels tant de manière formelle qu'informelle. Les participants pourront y partager leurs expériences et débattre des futures possibilités d'apprentissage dans les mondes virtuels. 

La conférence s'adresse à un public varié comprenant des éducateurs, des chercheurs, des étudiants, des chercheurs indépendants, des experts en TIC ainsi que des utilisateurs de mondes virtuels..

As all of you probably already know, we are organizing the first OpenSimulator Community Conference on the first full weekend of September, 7-8. This event has been in the making since, roughly, March. But it took us a couple of years before that to actually convince ourselves that it was worth doing it. Here are all the reasons why I think this event a great thing, and why everyone who uses OpenSimulator should be involved in some way....

gawlab's insight:

So here are some ways for you to get involved and help in this multi-purpose activity:

We are still in need of inworld volunteers. Consider volunteering to help during the conference. You’ll get an inworld ticket, and those are limited!Don’t have much time to volunteer or cannot attend the conference? Consider being a sponsor, even if at the lowest level (US$50). While a virtual conference is 80x cheaper than a RL world one, it is not free of costs entirely. These sponsorships help defray the costs that we are incurring in.Come participate in the load tests. We have one every Tuesday at noon PST. There is also a special load test this Saturday, where we hope to get close to 200 avatars — the real deal. Be part of a major milestone in the history of OpenSim/Second Life.

Opensimulator Community Conference 2013

Opensimulator Community Conference 2013 | Metatrame | Scoop.it
Announcing the 1st Annual OpenSimulator Community Conference

The Overte Foundation and AvaCon are pleased to announce the first annual OpenSimulator Community Conference 2013, to take place on the OpenSimulator Conference Center grid on September 7 – 8, 2013.  The OpenSimulator Community Conference will be a celebration of the platform and of the large and varied community using and creating it.  It will feature two days of keynote speakers, presentations and panels on different topics, and an expo area to showcase community activities and projects.

gawlab's insight:

Registration opening : 

Due to the “alpha” nature of the OpenSimulator software, this conference is an experiment in capacity testing for OpenSimulator in addition to being a community event. Therefore, tickets to the conference will be free but limited in number. We hope to be able to accommodate over 200 users in total, a figure which includes speakers, sponsors and staff . Since seats are limited, registration will open on a first-come-first-served basis on June 17, 2013 until the maximum number of virtual conference center tickets is reached. At that point, community members will still be able to register for the live streamed version of the conference that will be available via UStream. This will also be free.

The expo area will not be ticketed and so can be accessed by any avatar, subject to constraints on the number of avatars that the exhibition regions can hold at any particular time.
