Building the Open Metaverse event at SIGGRAPH 2021

Join us virtually at SIGGRAPH to learn about and discuss the metaverse!

I am co-organizing the SIGGRAPH Building the Open Metaverse BOF with Marc Petit, General Manager, Unreal Engine at Epic Games on Tuesday, August 10, 1:00-2:30pm EST.

Cesium is collaborating with Epic Games to build an open metaverse

The metaverse will be an open and immersive network for gaming, social engagement, and enterprise collaboration, enabled by the advancement of a breadth of graphics technology, including game engines, AR wearables, real-world scans, and VR.

Since the metaverse will be built collaboratively by many organizations, technical experts from across the community are joining us to give short presentations on their vision of the metaverse and their contributions to it.

Presenters include:

  • Morgan McGuire, Chief Scientist at Roblox
  • Teddy Bergsman, Senior Director, Quixel at Epic Games
  • Rev Lebaredian, VP, Simulation Technology at NVIDIA
  • Shehzan Mohammed, Director of Product Management at Cesium
  • Vladimir Vukićević, Senior Software Engineer at Unity
  • Royal O'Brien, Game Tech Chief Evangelist at Amazon
  • Neil Trevett, President, The Khronos Group and VP, Developer Ecosystems at NVIDIA

This will be a forward-looking educational and collaborative event. To attend the live session, SIGGRAPH 2021 registration at the Basic Attendee level or greater is required.

Slide links will be posted afterward in our virtual trip report on the Cesium blog.

Drop me an email if you would like to discuss the event, the metaverse, or all things 3D geospatial.
