3DHOP – Presenting online high-res 3D models: a crash course
3DHOP (3D Heritage Online Presenter) is an open-source tool for the creation of multimedia interactive Web presentations of digital cultural artifacts. 3DHOP target audience range from the museum curators with some IT experience to the experienced Web designers who wants to embed 3D contents in their creations. Based on WebGL, works on almost all platforms, without plugin or a dedicated server, directly inside HTML pages and is capable of streaming multiresolution 3D meshes over HTTP, supporting the exploration of huge 3D models on commodity computers and standard internet connections.

The workshop will present the tool, its components and capabilities, and various examples of 3D web visualization created with it. Then, in a hands-on tutorial, the participants will be guided through the setup of a 3D web visualization, going from a simple example to a more complex multiple-object active-spots animated 3D-HTML page.

The participants will receive documentation material, how-to and web templates, and all the 3D/2D data used in the hands-on tutorial (to start experimenting with the tool).

Improving Presentation Skills
Especially for early-career researchers, presenting a paper at an international conference like CAA can be very challenging. Effectively communicating a piece of research in an oral presentation, even to interested peers, is never easy. Personal style, selection of subject matter, choice of presentation material, language barrier and differences in academic culture can all stand in the way of getting the message across. And unfortunately, constructive feedback is often very difficult to obtain.

In this workshop, the CAA Steering Committee wants to offer presenters at CAA the opportunity to practice their paper and receive targeted feedback on their presentation in a 30 minute session. Participants will first present their papers to eachother, and to a small group of experienced presenters. These will then give feedback on the quality of the presentation, and where necessary provide guidelines for improvement, in a supportive atmosphere. Drinks will be arranged afterwards.

Participation is limited to 12 persons; preference will be given to first-time presenters and young researchers.
