Roadmap 2016
A Project of: Accelerating Studies Foundation
Inaugural MVR Summit

Participants met at the world-famous futures think tank, SRI International, in May 2006 to begin production of the map. See Summit Objectives and Daniel Terdiman's post-Summit CNET article for more on the gathering. We are now in the process of writing up the output from this excellent event. Thanks to all our distinguished participants for donating their time and knowledge to the 2006 Summit.

Are you an industry professional, technologist, academic, analyst, or member of the public who would like to share your thoughts on the future of the 3D Web? See Public Participation for ways to get your insights into the map.
