The 22nd International Conference on 3D Web Technology (Web3D 2017) continues to address an extensive range of research, development, and practice related to Web-based 3D Graphics.

In 2017, we welcome works addressing the emerging opportunities and research of portable, integrated information spaces over the web including, but not limited to:

  • Emerging WebVR and WebAR capabilities.
  • Scalable, interoperable representations and modeling methods for complex geometry, structure, and behaviors.
  • 3D similarity search and matching, 3D search interfaces, sketch-based approaches.
  • Visualization and exploration of 3D object repositories.
  • Scientific and medical visualization, medical simulation and training.
  • 3D content creation, analysis tools and pipelines, and 3D classification.
  • Annotation, metadata, hyperlinking and Semantic Web for 3D objects and scenes.
  • Generative and example-based shape modeling and optimization.
  • 3D scanning, 3D reconstruction 3D digitization, and 3D printing.
  • Streaming and rendering of large-scale models, animations, and virtual worlds.
  • Progressive 3D compression and model optimization.
  • Collaborative operation and distributed virtual environments.
  • Web-wide human-computer interaction and 3D User Interfaces.
  • 3D City Models, Building Information Modeling & Geo-visualization.
  • Mixed and Augmented Reality (MAR) including standardization aspects.
  • Web3D and associated APIs, toolkits, and frameworks.
  • Novel Web3D interaction paradigms for mobile/handheld applications.
  • Web based interaction techniques including gesture, pen and voice.
  • Agents, animated humanoids, and complex reactive characters.
  • Motion capture for composition and streaming of behaviors and expressions.
  • Web3D for social networking.
  • Script algorithms and programming for lightweight Web3D.
  • Network transmission over mobile Internet.
  • Server-side 3D engines and cloud-based gaming.
  • Architecture support by large Web3D applications for CAD tools and solid modelers.
  • Data analysis and intelligent algorithms for big Web3D data.
  • Interactive Web 3D applications in all applications and sectors.
