See the successful inaugural Mosaic3DX on Flickr

We are glad to announce that the inaugural Mosaic3DX was a very successful event. Many of the attendees left the last session of the conference with a great positive experience and many have said they would like to attend the event again next year.
We tried to capture some of this excitement in pictures. You can see them on Mosaic3DX Flickr photo stream at

We hope to be back next year with an even greater and a bigger event.

The 2013 videos are currently being processed and the slides are being collected for wide distribution over the Internet within the coming weeks. You may follow our Twitter channel which also includes Tweets from the two days of the event at

SOLD OUT: Mosaic3DX 2013 has sold out.

The Mosaic3DX team are delighted to announce today that the event – consisting of a free and a main track – has sold out, one week before the doors open. For the past few days, close partners and the more enthusiastic audience were following the event’s live feed on Twitter (@Mosaic3DX - The sales of the last place was first announced on Twitter today.

This marks the birth of a new annual event based in Cambridge which attracts professionals in sectors ranging from Science/Medical, to Engineering, Software Development, Arts and Interactive Entertainment. The event is already bringing dozens of attendees from across the UK and other countries in Europe; and hopes to extend its reach further out to the European and worldwide audience over the coming years.

A Nobel Prize goes to Computational Chemistry, and with it Mosaic3DX gets a new edge as it focuses on Computational Science.

Today, the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to the development of computational models for complex chemical systems. We are glad, for this helps highlight the importance of computation in science, one of the subjects on which our event focuses – and for those of you who may not be familiar, graphics processing units (GPUs), the devices that first helped create better visuals for video games are the very same devices being used today to accelerate the processing of computational models for scientists and engineers; just as they help create the next generation of stunning visual effects in films!

Unity3D at Mosaic3DX 2013

Please join us in welcoming Unity Technologies (Unity3D) to Mosaic3DX 2013.

We are glad to announce today that Unity Technologies, the company behind Unity3D, one of the gaming and simulation industry’s most popular authoring applications, will be joining us for a presentation.

This will be a talk about advanced tips and tricks in using Unity3D following our introductory session on the application. If you haven’t already seen the early access version of the conference programme:


Aardvark Swift partnership announcement

The Mosaic3DX team is glad to announce that Aardvark Swift, a market leading, specialist recruitment consultancy for the Video Game and Mobile Entertainment market, has reached a partnership agreement with us to work together on making Mosaic3DX an even better event. Aardvark Swift has also been granted the financial rights to sales of tickets and exhibition space at Mosaic3DX 2013.

Gamers, artists, scientists and engineers converge in the name of a 3D education

The work of artists, architects, scientists, engineers and gamers are not usually associated with one another, but that’s set to change as specialists from these disparate groups unite through their work in advanced 3D visualisation and digital graphics techniques at the inaugural Mosaic3DX conference and exhibition.

Mosaic3DX plans to bring users and developers of these technologies from the Entertainments, Science/Engineering, and Arts & Design industries to exchange knowledge and skills, whether it’s architects creating state-of-the-art modelling, medical innovators visualising robotic surgery, engineers predicting multi-phase flows or digital artists unlocking new perspectives on whatever spills out of their imaginations.

The event covers many subjects related to 3D graphics ranging from graphics hardware design all the way to the use of specialised applications capable of taking advantage of such features in both desktop and mobile devices. To provide a focus to discussions and to make sure the event tackles real world problems, each year Mosaic3DX will have an underlying theme, which this year is Education. The aim is to provide a better understanding of how the Visualisation and Digital Graphics technologies available today can help improve or evolve Education at all levels.

Highlights at the inaugural event that takes place on 30th and 31st of October include the second meeting of the standards body, Khronos Group’s UK chapter, led by Samsung R&D Institute UK, Unity 3D workshop and an Education panel that will debate the question: “Specialists or all-rounders: What sort of school leavers do we need?”

Although in its first year, with speakers from universities such as Imperial College London, Cambridge, Cranfield as well as innovative startups and major corporates (Microsoft Research, Nvidia, MathWorks, Samsung, Undo Software, Geomerics, Liquid3D Solutions), Mosaic3DX already has a world class lineup and the potential to become one of Europe’s most respected multidisciplinary events in modern computing and graphics.

Event organiser and leader of Cambridge Games Creators, Ramin Zaghi, said: “I think that as computing power increases and software gains more complexity and importance across all industries, it becomes increasingly difficult for computer experts alone to harness the power of modern machines.

“Taking advantage of this increasing power of technology becomes a multidisciplinary role requiring experts in other industries to understand not just what machines are capable of doing but also exactly how computing can be put into use for the benefit of their specific sectors. This means educating everyone with the latest technological developments. Mosaic3DX is an event where one can learn a great deal within a short amount of time – and I am excited to be part of it.”

Khronos UK Chapter* meeting at Mosaic3DX 2013, Lead by Samsung R&D Institute UK

Please read the joint announcement on the official Khronos website at

Lead by Samsung R&D Institute UK, and hosted at Mosaic3DX 2013, the international standards body, Khronos Group, will meet in Cambridge on Thursday 31st Oct. This event is one of the free sessions offered by the Mosaic3DX conference and exhibition this year. You can register for this free session through our registration page at:

The following is a joint announcement by the Mosaic3DX team and the Khronos UK Chapter:

The Khronos UK Chapter* is a group of the UK’s Khronos API users enabling them to get together and expand understanding of the APIs, discuss ideas to improve them, and share technical achievements in the graphics/multimedia/compute domains.

At Mosaic3DX this year, we would like to hear about your experiences developing games using APIs such as OpenGL, OpenGL ES, and OpenCL and thoughts on what you’d want to see in future versions. Expect some interesting presentations and a heated discussion!

If you have a demo that you would like to show off at this session, please drop an email to the Khronos UK Chapter leaders, Samsung R&D Institute UK at

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

* Khronos Group is an international not-for-profit industry consortium formed of companies such as Samsung Electronics, Sony Computer Entertainment, Nvidia, etc. focused on the creation of open standards such as OpenGL for accelerating playback of multimedia contents on all forms of modern digital devices.
* The UK Chapter is a recently formed subgroup of the Khronos Group focusing on the users within the UK.

The full program to be published on Monday 2nd of September

We are glad to announce that the full conference program for Mosaic3DX 2013 is due to be published in less than 10 days on Monday the 2nd of September.

The Mosaic3DX team, here in Cambridge, has attracted an amazing host of speakers from across the UK and Europe who will deliver more than 27 hours of presentations, workshops, and discussion panels over the two days of the event.

Registration for both the main conference and the free track is open. You may reserve your tickets on the registration page now:
