AvaCon, Inc. produced the Second Life Community Convention in 2010 and 2011. Â Archival information about the conference can be found below.
TheÂ Second Life Community ConventionÂ is three days of exciting activities, events, musical performances, machinima screenings, panels, workshops, and much more that showcases the abundant creativity of Second Life Residents. Â Since its inception, SLCC has been organizedÂ byÂ the communityÂ forÂ the community.
Second LifeÂ® is a thriving online community based in a 3D environment which was established in 2003. It has â€œResidentsâ€ from all over the worldâ€”1.4 million of whom have actively participated in the past 60 days. More than a game environment, Second Life combines the visual richness of a virtual world simulation with applications and tools for creative collaboration and social networking. Attendees come from many sectors, including government agencies, Fortune 500 companies, universities and colleges, hospitals, and non-profits, as well as individuals at the consumer level who use the platform for music, art, online community building, and much more.
The goal of convention is to bring the many Residents of the Second Life community together to network, build friendships and to discuss Second Life in a common forum. All of the organizers and volunteers who plan and staff each yearâ€™s convention donate their time, expertise, skills and love of Second Life to create a great experience for attendees.
We are excited to announce that theÂ 7th Annual Second Life Community Convention 2011Â will take place at theÂ Oakland Marriott City Center in Oakland, CAÂ from August 12-14, 2011, andÂ registration is now open!
