Reflection Pool, Berkeley by Landis Bennett.

Registration and Membership Fees

This conference is sponsored by the International VR Photography Association (IVRPA) and open to anyone interested in the art and science of VR photography and related fields.

The basic cost is $250 for members, plus extra for field trips, guests at the banquet, and late fees. If you are not a member join now and save.

The conference is not being planned as a family event. Each participant must be registered and paid to attend "VR-101", the plenary day, or the sessions/panels/workshops. Family members and guests are welcome at the social events, but must pay individually for the banquet.

Extra seat at banquet

The banquet on Sunday is included in the conference price. You can reserve extra seats for $30 each (limit one extra seat per registered attendee).

Field Trips

Golden Gate

The Golden Gate field trip will cost $40, to cover the cost of transportation. There is a limit of 20 people on this trip.


If you wish to go on the Alcatraz trip you will need to purchase a ticket directly from the ferry company. Do not delay, they sell out early!

To get your personal tickets for the Alcatraz ferry, go to their web site and use a credit card. Start
here, then select June 18 from the calendar and the number of tickets you need (up to eight). It will show you what is available. Select the Day Tour PM at 3:30 pm. (If that is full, you can make the 2:50 pm by hustling ahead of the group, or the 3:55 pm.)

You can print your own e-ticket - bring it with you. When you get to the terminal you must go to the window to pick up your boarding pass (the real ticket), showing them a picture id and the credit card you used to purchase the ticket.

San Francisco Walking Tour

There is no charge for this trip, other than BART fare to San Francisco. Enrollment is limited to fifteen.

Yosemite field trip

We were unable to arrange our own Yosemite trip, but a number of our participants are going on commercial tours with Incredible Adventures. There might be one or two places left (or cancellations) on their two-day hotel tour leaving June 20. Alternatively, there is a three day camping trip leaving on Thursday, June 21.

Consult the Incredible Adventures Yosemite Tour page or call them at 1-800-777-8464. Let Jolie know that you are part of the VR conference, so that we can get a Berkeley pick-up.


Vendors of merchandise and services of interest to the conference attendees are invited to participate. The fee is $600 for IVRPA corporate members, $900 for non-member companies. This includes two tickets to the conference and banquet.

Vendors will be given exhibit space and an opportunity to present their products on Saturday, and a short video clip provided by each company will be posted on the IVRPA conference website.

Contact Michael Quan for more details and to reserve your space.
