The VWBPE 2018 Conference Schedule is Live!

Start planning your personal schedule for each day of the conference! When you click on a conference event and click Add to Calendar, you can add events to your own calendar (Google+ and more). Add the whole calendar to yours with the Subscribe button at the bottom of the main calendar page. At the top right corner of the calendar, you can see a dropdown to view the events in different formats – Posterboard (default), Agenda, Month, Stream. Choose the one that works best for you. Most of the conference events will be in Second Life this year; the locations are included in the listings.

This year’s academic program is packed with a variety of lectures, workshops, and roundtable discussions, as well as features for engaging and extending discussions beyond the virtual regions in Second Life. Not only do we have amazing keynotes and the Above the Book special guest, we also have topics in building communities, teaching in virtual environments, creativity and art, and many more. Our social program and Immersive Experiences also have exciting offerings for you. Stay tuned for more information about exhibits!
