PAPERS presenting original work in 3D web research and application may be submitted in a long or short form (up to 9 or 4 pages). Submissions will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library and submitted to major indexing services, such as Web of Science, DBLP, and Scopus.

POSTERS present results of ongoing or recently completed work in 3D web research and application. The poster format offers the opportunity to interactively present and discuss interesting results to the Web3D community. Posters should be submitted in the form of abstracts (2 pages), which after acceptance will be published in the conference proceedings.

TUTORIALS are an opportunity to present introductory and advanced applications of 3D web technologies to students and to experienced practitioners. Tutorial subjects can include practices for authoring interactive 3D scenes and in using 3D graphics in diverse application areas. Especially welcome are tutorials in the use of open-source software and web applications, which can be presented in hands-on sessions at the conference.

WORKSHOPS provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from both the web and 3D multimedia communities to discuss and exchange positions on current and emergent 3D web topics. Workshops may take the form of presentation sessions moderated by workshop organizers or open discussions on a specific topic of interest.

DEMONSTRATIONS enable artists, content designers, and developers to share their innovative 3D works at the conference. Artworks and applications developed for various platforms, including the web, desktop, mobile and VR/AR systems, are welcome. Demonstrations should be submitted in the form of short descriptions (2 pages), which after acceptance may be published in the conference proceedings.

INDUSTRIAL USE CASES enable practitioners to demonstrate how 3D web technologies may be used in industrial applications. A special track during Web3D 2018 will be devoted to industrial use cases to share inspiration, best practice and requirements of using 3D in various application domains.

COMPETITION (H-ANIM) This annual competition is dedicated to showing how H-Anim and X3D graphics standards can be used for creating animated music videos. The competition is organized by the Korean Standards Association (KSA) and Web3D Consortium. For competitors, attendance at the conference is not mandatory, but is encouraged.

Questions about the program and conference topics can be sent to program@web3d2018.org.
