At last, some information on the first Virtual Worlds Camp !
The Virtual Worlds Camp is an event that is based on the Bar Camp model, but is held in a virtual universe (in this case it is in several virtual worlds that are based on OpenSim). What this means is that this “un-conference” does not have a predefined topic. Each participant can choose to bring his or her own theme for discussion the day of the event (D-day).
How-How Does it Work?
To be part of this first Virtual Worlds Camp you must, at least, sign up with one of the Virtual Worlds that are participating, prior to Virtual Worlds Camp D-day. At this point (09/07/09) you can join FrancoGrid (French speaking) Cyberlandia (Italian speaking), or ReactionGrid (English-speaking).
In order to organize best and preview the necessary material, we are asking you all to sign up on the list of participants on the wiki for the Camp.
Where-Where Will it Be?
You can attend the workshops and conference in the virtual worlds with one avatar alone. Thus, you can teleport from one world to the other without having to create a new account.
Here are the first three virtual worlds (based on OpenSim)
Who-Who Can Attend?
Anyone can participate, and the Virtual Worlds Camp is completely free! Communication and sharing are the watchwords of this get-together.
When-When Is It?
The Virtual Worlds Camp will take place over two days: October 10th and 11th, 2009.
What- What To Do
- For participants: All you need is to be present on a sim (island) constructed to hold 4 workshops simultaneously. The planning will be done on the day of the meeting.
- For Grid Owners: We have a sim (load OAR-OpenSim Archive) ready. All you need to do is personalize it with the colors of the event. There (or )the sims dedicated to the Virtual Worlds Camp are able to hold 4 workshops. Thus, you need to divide the sim into 4 parcels (especially for the media streams). Your sim should also be equipped for voice from the hypergrid system.
