Event Details

The Opensimulator Community Conference is an annual conference that focuses on the user community and developers of the OpenSimulator software. The conference features two days of presentations, workshops, keynote sessions, and social events to enhance technical, scholarly, artistic, commercial, and community produced works across diverse sectors of the OpenSimulator user base.

Organized as a joint production by Core Developers of OpenSimulator and AvaCon, Inc., the conference is hosted on an OpenSimulator grid specifically designed for the conference.

We hope to be able to accommodate over 350 users in total, a figure which includes speakers, sponsors, and staff. Since seats are limited, registration is open on a first-come-first-served basis 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.

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.

NOTICE & DISCLAIMERS FOR CROWDFUNDER CAMPAIGN
