VRSionUp!8: Meetup in Online WebVR events

About me

Hi, my name is Liudmila Bredikhina. I’m a virtual intern at GREE VR Studio Lab, and I’m a Master’s Degree student at the Geneva University. I’m currently majoring in Asian Studies, and I research Japanese Virtual Beings, such as VTubers.

Introduction

VRSionUp!8 was held on September 8th, 2020, from 7 pm — 9 pm JST. The title of this eight edition was “WebVR Online Event Development.” There is a rising demand for the technological development of online events during COVID-19. During this VRSionUp!, various researchers shared techniques for conducting such online events using WebVR. Simultaneously, there was a report on the GREE VR Studio Laboratory’s research and development, such as SIGGRAPH 2020 and VTech Challenge 2020. VRSionUp!8 took place in Mozilla Hubs, and the audience could watch the live stream on YouTube. Once the event was over, a URL of the Hubs Room was sent to the audience, and they could join the speakers for a casual meet-up in Hubs.
