The theme of WRF18 is Being Together. In the 21st century, when social inequality has reached a pinnacle, we rely more on technology than on each other. This June, we will be together in Crans-Montana reimagining our future without the social anarchy at the most anticipated edition so far! The WVRF18 programme is made up of the artistic direction of the World VR Forum, in collaboration with our WVRF18 Conference Chairman – Bruce Wooden, Founder of AltSpaceVR – a Social VR application in California, acquired in 2017 by Microsoft. Social VR at its core is the idea of “social presence”. The WVRF Annual Summit’s Conferences are the culmination of a year-round work, bringing together all the expertise of the team and its advisors to provide participants with an editorial of the highest quality. Broadcasted live on our YouTube channel, all the debates take place in the conference room of the Le Régent Congress Center available on WVRF Replay a few weeks after the event.
Our Conference Chairmen from previous editions included: in 2017 – Neal Hartman, a researcher at CERN in Geneva and in 2016 – Michel Reilhac, an independent interactive story architect from France, both distinctive and well-accomplished masters in their fields of work.
