[CFP] Learn, Teach and Play in 3D Virtual Worlds 

in Second Life and City University London


We are running a one-day seminar on the topic of “Learn, Teach and Play in 3D Virtual Worlds” and we are inviting you to join us in this exciting event! We welcome teachers, students, educational technologists, researchers, and anyone interested in 3D virtual worlds and games. We welcome you to showcase your virtual world projects (e.g. education, virtual museum, etc), to present your research findings, or simply to voice your opinions about it.

Time and place

·       the seminar (whole day, 18 March 2009) will be face to face meeting at City University London (time and room will be announced later).


Types of participation

·       If you are interested in attending this event, please send in a short bio (50-100 words) to us.

·       If you are interested in showcasing your project, please send in a short bio (50-100 words) and a short description of the project (around 300 words)

·       If you are interested in presenting your research findings, please send in a short bio (50-100 words) and an abstract of the study (around 300 words)


We are not just looking for presentations but participatory formats to share and debate. Thus, we welcome ideas of other types of participations. Please submit a proposal (around 300 words) to let us know what you would like to discuss, how you think we could best exchange ideas in this event and the anticipated outputs.


In addition, a virtual meeting (in Second Life) will take place a day before the face to face event and everyone is welcome. Further information of the virtual event will be announced shortly.
