15 and 16 July 2006 the Crystal Space team, together with the Center of Learning and Knowledge Management and Department of Computer Science in Mechanical Engineering (ZLW/IMA) at the university of Aachen (Germany) will hold the very first Crystal Space Conference. During those two days developers and users of Crystal Space will talk about technical and artistic issues related to developing 3D games using the Crystal Space framework. Talks include subjects like advanced shader techniques, the Crystal Entity Layer game framework, case studies of projects using Crystal Space.
