MetaMeets 2011, Amsterdam
“Are social virtual worlds like ‘Secondlife’® still alive?
What does it take to make a virtual world?
How do I stream into a virtual world?
What is Machinima?
How do I create 3 Dimensional content?
Are 3D virtual worlds useful for my students as E-learning?”
All these questions will be answered at Europe’s Premiere 3D Internet & Virtual worlds conference ‘MetaMeets 2011’ in Amsterdam.
Speakers and workshop leaders will guide you through the world of 3D environments.
‘Let’s Create 3D’ is this years theme to show interactively what software you can use to create what is seemingly the impossible. We will show you how to stream into a virtual world, how to make Machinima, the power of E Learning and how to co create with all kinds of people from around the world.
This years presenters include;
Ian Hughes from Feeding Edge who worked for IBM® on the platform ‘Secondlife’®
Noah Falstein from Inspiracy who developed the first graphic virtual world ‘Habitat’®
Ian Gee from Nokia® who inspires companies to dare to change
Ineke Verheul from Gameon, who does research on Avatar behaviour

Raphael Isdant & Nicolas Sordello creators of ‘Virtual Windows’ for children isolated in their sickbeds
The conference will also introduce you to many more speakers who all share a passion for working, creating, educating and entertaining in 3D platforms.
Social Virtual worlds like Second Life®, Francogrid®, Club Coeee® and Open Sim will show their endless possibilities.
It will be an exciting weekend as MetaMeets will be combined with MMIF, (MaMachinima International Festival) and there will be an opportunity to meet, greet and network with cross media entertainment professionals.
The conference in past years has been well attended not only at the venue but interactively within 3D platforms and on the internet. All in all, it is looking to be a very informative and fun conference to attend this year!
