3D and Multimedia on Internet, WWW and Networks
16-18 April 1996
Over 200 people attended the Conference held in the National Museum of Photography,
Film & Television and co-chaired by Professor John Vince, Huw Jones,
Roy Middleton and Professor Rae Earnshaw. It was great to see such an excellent
venue utilised to the full. The Vice-Chancellor, Professor David Johns,
and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Brenda Costall, welcomed the delegates
to the Conference and to Bradford.
We have analysed the Conference Evaluation Forms and they confirm the informal
feedback we have already received - that this was one of the best conferences
many people had attended, with good papers and excellent presentations.
The facilities of Pictureville and the Museum were much appreciated by
the delegates. The A/V support was first class.
The Pre-Conference Banquet was held in the Museum and was attended by the
Vice-Chancellor, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Invited Speakers, Co-Chairs, members
of the Industrial Advisory Board, and guests. It was an excellent occasion
with some scintillating speeches. We express our thanks and appreciation
to Silicon Graphics, Academic Press and Androme for sponsoring the Banquet.
All delegates were invited to a special Conference screening of "Survival
Island" in the IMAX Theatre on Wednesday evening. This film was produced
by Sir Richard Attenborough.
It was agreed that because the topic area was so exciting and of great interest
to many people, we should have a further conference on a similar theme next
year. This will be held 15-17 April 1997 and the Museum is delighted to
host the event once again. The theme will be Virtual Environments on the
Internet, WWW and Networks. The Call for Papers was issued at theconference
and is summarised below in conferences and Meetings Notices.
The Co-Chairs would like to express their thanks and appreciation to all
those who assisted with the Conference and to Amanda Nevill, Tony Sweeney
and the Museum for their generous hospitality and assistance with the Conference
