World VR Forum Switzerland
September 5 - September 8
World VR Forum (WVRF) is an international non profit organization dedicated to VR and AR holding its annual summit mid-spring in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. Its 2016 inaugural edition gathered 1500 professionals and enthusiasts for a high-level forum and an immersive festival. WVRF has set new standards for VR, opening the Forum to rich diversity and dedicating a customized space for each work on a mission to erect VR as a distinguished art form. WVRF supports VR internationally in partnerships with Film festivals and markets (Xi’an Silk Road International Film Festival, SIFF Shanghai, SUNNY SIDE La Rochelle, NABShow Shanghai…); or official events (WSIS Geneva, CIC China…). WVRF also releases scientific publications for the advancement of Virtual Reality (Pr. Philippe Fuchs, Dr. Nicoletta Iocabacci…). The World VR Forum is recognized in 2016 by the International Telecommunications Union’s SG Houlin Zhao for its commitment in implementing the World Summit Information Society’s related activities, and for its contribution to the WSIS Fund. In Fall 2016, the WVRF will be opening memberships.
