Overcoming technical limits of LSL (SL and OpenSim) @ VWBPE Lecture Area A

Speaker: James Stibbards  / JB Hancroft

This is an advanced technical session, for those who would like to have *large* and *complex* projects in SL or OpenSim, but are concerned about the inherent limits of the programming platform and language (LSL). It is not an introduction to coding. It will include an introduction to terminology.

  • Participants will be able to design projects which extend beyond the scripting memory model of SL.
  • Participants will be able to design projects which extend beyond SL, to include web server computing

Accessibility: Provide a written script during the presentation

Reflection of the need for a moral and ethical reality constituted from three-dimensional immersive digital environments (3D-IDEs) @ VWBPE Lecture Area B
Mar 28 @ 03:00 PM – 03:50 PM
Reflection of the need for a moral and ethical reality constituted from three-dimensional immersive digital environments (3D-IDEs) @ VWBPE Lecture Area B

Speaker: Christian Jonathan Angel Rueda / ecoonis, Universidad Autonoma de Querataro

During the development of initial digital technologies, the user was an observer entity that, since it was not involved in the mixing of the real with the virtual, did not feel the direct and instantaneous affectation of the use of said technology itself. Currently, with the new 3D-IDEs technologies, immersion is total, which generates a new problem both with their identity and with their perception of mixed realities, which can affect their moral perception and ethical awareness

  • Participants may reflect on the proposal of a Values Sensitive Design (VSD)
