I3D is the leading conference for real time 3D computer graphics and human interaction.

I3D 2020 was planned to be held at Industrial Light & Magic, located in the Presidio in San Francisco, California. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we have finally decided to go entirely virtual. The conference will be the week of September 14-18. It will be free to all attendees and authors. For more details, please check regularly our status report section.

2020 is I3D's 34th year since the inaugural workshop in 1986, and the 24th conference (I3D occurred roughly biennially until 2005). More details on prior conferences are available here.
