Description of Effort:
The X3D Graphics Working Group is designing and implementing the next-generation Extensible 3D (X3D) Graphics specification. We are expressing the geometry and behavior capabilities of the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML 97) using the Extensible Markup Language (XML). This Web3D Consortium recommendation is being developed in cooperation with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and will become third-generation standard for 3D graphics interchange, again ratified by International Standards Organization (ISO).

Major Participants:
Web3D Consortium member companies, individual professional members and open volunteers.

Types of people they would like to get involved:
Anyone interested in developing interchangable 3D graphics on the Web.  Most work is accomplished via the x3d-contributors@web3D.org mail list.

How people can get involved:
Efforts include specification, open-source implementation and evaluation, content examples, application programming interfaces and conformance suite.
