VWBPE 2024 Immersive Experiences Guidelines

Virtual Worlds

The Virtual Worlds format is only available for Immersive Experiences.
These may include any user-created virtual locations hosted in Second Life®, any OpenSimulator grid, or other three dimensional immersive environment (AR/ VR/ XR) that allows immersion into an experience.
This format should include locations that were created to immerse the participant in doing, not just “touring”. The place is the experience.

Length of these virtual world explorations may vary from 1-2 hours, to be scheduled both pre- and post-conference.

Wanna Play?

The Wanna Play? format is only available for Immersive Experiences.
Submissions in this area are for play platforms or massively multiplayer online roleplaying games, which may include online games and environments that may not have been originally intended to be used in education, but which are nonetheless being used in various ways.
Submitting to this platform indicates you want to lead a group of adventurers on a bit of play with purpose – an educational purpose.

Length of these formats may vary from 1-2 hours, to be scheduled both pre- and post-conference.
