Update on OpenSimulator Community Conference 2014

Fleep Tuque
Hi all,

A quick update on the OpenSimulator Community Conference, November 8-9, 2014!  http://conference.opensimulator.org/

We expect the conference to be a sell out event this year. Registration has been brisk and we have fewer than 100 general admission tickets remaining.  If you haven’t registered yet, please be sure to sign up!

Keynote Speakers

We have several high profile keynote speakers this year, including Philip Rosedale, CEO of High Fidelity, who will speak about the future of the Metaverse, and Steve LaValle from Oculus Rift, who will discuss the Oculus team’s race to deliver consumer grade virtual reality for mainstream adoption.

In addition, a keynote panel of core OpenSimulator developers will discuss the future of the platform, including the Hypergrid, content licensing and permissions, scalability, and project maturity.  Keynote panelists include Justin Clark-Case, Crista Lopes, Mic Bowman, Oren Hurvitz, Michael Cerquoni, and Melanie Milland.  

Volunteers, Content Donations Still Needed

We’re also asking members of the OpenSimulator community to consider volunteering for the conference. We still need volunteers to help with audience assistance and greeting, as well as moderators to help introduce speakers.  If you can sign up for even a single shift, we’d be very appreciative!

Sign up to volunteer at: 

We also hope to give people more avatar choices this year, so we appreciate donations of avatar components or other content that we can share with conference attendees.  

To make a donation of content, upload your OAR or IAR file at:  http://conference.opensimulator.org/2014/about/content-donation-form/

Last Chance for Crowdfunder Community Booth

We’ll also be closing the option to have a Community Booth in the Crowdfunder Campaign so that we have enough time to coordinate everyone’s builds.  If you wanted to have a community booth, this is your last chance!

Sign up for a Crowdfunder Community Booth:  

Thanks as always to the speakers, sponsors, crowdfunders, and terrific volunteers who are helping make this year’s conference a great event. We hope to see you at the conference in a few weeks!
