VWBPE 2023: Uncommon Realities
March 23-25, 2023
International Conference on Education in Virtual and Augmented Reality
VWBPE 2023 Exhibits and Immersive Experiences
The VWBPE Conference “Exhibit Hall” provides an environment that is radically different from any brick-and-mortar conference you’ve attended. Showcase your creative virtual world work or promote your organization or achievements in a unique setting conforming to your biome type and exhibitor guidelines.
2023 marks the beginning of a new VWBPE region cycle. The exhibits have come down to earth to explore the biomes of our Uncommon Realities. Exhibitors will be able to choose their biome upon submission on a first in basis. We will do our best to accommodate your choice. Apply early for best options!

There will be no skyboxes this year. Each exhibitor will receive a build package that will contain objects to help your exhibit blend into its surroundings. You will also be given a special teleport HUD that will allow you to teleport to your exhibit space once assigned.
Don’t be intimidated. You can figure out the fine points later and we are happy to help.

There are so many places to explore in virtual environments, so many locations where teaching and learning are innovative and engaging.
Would you like to share such an Immersive Experience with us?
Immersive Experiences take place during the 2 weeks before and after the main conference dates, from 05 March through 20 March 2023, and again from 26 March through 04 April 2023.
The Virtual Worlds format 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.
The Wanna Play? format is for play platforms or massively multiplayer online role playing 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 under this format indicates you want to lead a group of adventurers on a bit of play with purpose – an educational purpose.
We invite you to consider providing a short video that can be used to promote your Immersive Experience.
