Call for Papers

Stereoscopic 3D: A Creative Summit

Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th March 2013

The British Film Institute,

South Bank,


Ravensbourne ( and the i3DS Society (, have great pleasure in calling for papers for the third international conference on stereoscopic film and television. The conference includes a half-day research strand that will draw together academia and industry to critically examine stereoscopic film and television.

For further information about the conference:

Deadline for abstracts: Monday 11th February 2013

On June 21 1838 the Royal Society published Charles Wheatstone’s paper on 3D Stereoscopy, Contributions to the Physiology of Vision. The eminent Professor of Experimental Philosophy at Kings College, London laid out principles of stereoscopy and later invented the stereoscope. The stereoscopic technique has therefore existed for over 150 years, but we ask:

· Can 3DS be considered to have reached maturity? Who decides what creative or technical ‘maturity’ means?

· What is the possibility of setting worldwide technical standards and creative guidelines for stereoscopic film, television and other related content?

· It could be argued that the releasing of 2D to 3D conversions is having a degenerative effect; the need to generate revenue through ‘brand 3D’ may be altering the perception of 3DS from audience perspectives. Should we therefore now define what is and what is not ‘true’ stereoscopy?

·     What is next after the commodification of 3DS, for example 4K 3DS?

We will be accepting around 15 papers or presentations on the topics above, which can include investigations into stereoscopic animation or gaming if the study contributes to the conference theme. However ALL acceptable research from practitioners interested in stereoscopic 3D can have a place through the exhibition of a poster outlining your work. Attendees will also be able to contribute to a workshop, which will map research being generated in this field, worldwide.

Papers, posters, or expressions of interest in mapping 3DS Research should be sent in the form of 500 word abstracts to (lizzie.jackson /at/ by Monday 11th February 2013. Please also state your name, affiliation, and provide a one-paragraph biography. Accepted papers/presentations will receive a conference fee waiver.

We have had an expression of interest from a quality UK-based academic publisher to produce an edited collection, of international interest, that examines the broader context of stereoscopic film and television. We are therefore particularly interested in receiving papers that can be extended.

Kind regards to all,
