Looking Back at 2009 and Where We Are Heading in 2010

A personal statement by Jan van der Woning, IVRPA President

So at the end of the year it is good to look back at the achievements accomplished and what still needs to be done in the next year. This Board of Directors (BoD) had given itself a mission to professionalize the IVRPA. Therefore a few tasks had to be done. One of them was to amend the Bylaws, as it was not able for the association to live according to them. This was finalized in November and they can be found on the website. (

IVRPA 11th Anniversary

Today the IVRPA turns 11, still young, so much to do, so many dreams to make real!

The IVRPA was founded originally as the IQTVRA, the International QuickTimeVR Association. The association was incorporated in the state of California on December 7th, 1998. In December 2004, the association changed their name to IVRPA to reflect our broadening technological field of immersive interactive imaging.

Though still very young, we are more than ever committed to promote and support the uses of image based VR and related technologies worldwide through education.
