3rd International Second Life Community Convention


This looks like it'll be a fantastic conference.

CALL FOR PAPERS
3rd International Second Life Community Convention (SLCC07)
August 24-26, 2007, Chicago, USA

The emergence of virtual worlds and Web 3.D change the way of
doing business. Web 3.D is the synonym for Internet-based virtual
worlds, where people can create own 3-D *virtual*
personalities. One of the most famous of these virtual worlds is
Second Life. It is undergoing an evolution similar to that of the
Internet in the mid nineties and it might impact profoundly the
way people cooperate, communicate, collaborate, and conduct
business. The recent entering of companies such as Toyota,
American Apparel, Nissan, or Adidas on Second Life is a first
indication for the upcoming role of this platform for the next
generation of conducting business online.
The conference provides a forum for industry, academia, and
government to present their latest findings in virtual worlds
like Second Life and the underlying technology to support these
applications. Therefore, we invite contributions (research paper,
working paper, work-in progress) from a broad spectrum of
disciplines including economics, management, business, marketing,
finance, information systems, and computer sciences.
