Detailed Session Descriptions

Session 1

Title: Opening Address

The meeting chair, Christine Perey, will kick off the meeting with a short welcome presentation. We will frame the key meeting objectives as well as review the agenda and discuss program details. Slides for this session are found here.

Session 2 and 3

Title: SDO Presentations

There are multiple international Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) seeking to increase AR reach (audience), flexibility and robustness of final services to end users. The domains of expertise, memberships, Intellectual Property policies and view points of these SDOs differ.

The objective of sessions 2 and 3 is to permit each Standards Development Organization currently working separately to report on its progress since the Seventh AR Standards Community Meeting or since it’s last report to the community members.

We also seek to include any SDO that has not previously participated in AR Standards Community meetings but that is exploring the extension of existing (or development of new) standards to contribute a presentation during this session.

Presentations run 20 minutes each unless approved in advance.

The presentations used during this session are downloaded by clicking on the name of the SDO, except for ARML 2.0 update which is separate.

Session 4

Title: New Opportunities and Challenges for AR

In this session we there will be presentations covering a variety of new issues that will soon or are already impeding the growth of the industry, or new opportunities for collaboration towards AR growth in the near future. The topics covered will include:

Session 5

Title: AR Interoperability: Applications, Services, Data Sets and Demonstrations

During this session Christine Perey will propose a definition of Interoperable AR and summarize status of proposal made to the OGC 3D Information Management Working Group and OGC Interoperability Program during the OGC TC Meeting January 14-17, 2013. The slides for this session include notes taken during the discussion period.

We will continue with a discussion on the development of AR interoperability testing methodologies, protocols and content with the goal of coordinating with all relevant SDOs to contribute to successful implementation of an international AR interoperability experiment.

Session 6

Title: Hands-Free AR User Experience Classifications and Requirements Document

This session will begin with a presentation by Sara Mautino on the topic of Hands-free AR user experiences, and the development of common guidelines that may help customers, researchers and manufacturers to choose and classify hands-free displays from the user perspective, and to build a common language for information exchange.

During this session we will also discuss the status of the Hands-Free AR and Smartphone Gap Analysis, receive and develop inputs and plan for its continued development.

Session 7

Title: SC 29 WG11 Augmented Reality Application Format (ARAF) Update

Marius Preda will provide a report on the status of work on the ARAF. This session is technically part of the SDO updates, however, the speaker is unable to attend on March 1. Slides for this session are here.

Session 8

Title: Augmented Reality Reference Model: Viewpoints

The presentation will focus on the viewpoints in AR Reference Model.

During this session Marius Preda, co-editor of SC29 ISO/IEC 23000-14 MPEG-A Part 14 AR Reference Model, will present updates. We also seek a representative of SC24 WG9 to provide their updates to the community members.

Session 9

Title: Use Cases and AR Glossary Task Force report

Tony Liao starts off with a stimulus presentation and an exercise to help the meeting participants better understand how to develop definitions. A short report about the status of the proposed AR Glossary Task Force will be provided and discussion about next steps conducted with participants of the community. (join Glossary mailing list from this page). During this session there will also be a discussion of AR Use Cases resource and task force (join mailing list from this page).

Session 10

Title: Progress in User Positioning Systems

Christine Perey will describe the goals of the Indoor Positioning and Navigation Testbed.
Participants will share any experiences they have with use of advanced positioning systems for AR experiences.

Session 11

Title: Demonstrations

The participants of the meeting are invited to provide examples of current applications and best practices, especially demonstrating examples where open standards are in use or could be developed to meet current obstacles to growth.

Company Demonstration Title
Institut Mines Telecom Sud-Paris AR Quiz (MPEG), Run Mousy Run
Explore Engage Examples of AR with print and 3D models and animations
DPR Barcelona AR in books and magazines using Aurasma
NGrain AR in industrial and education applications

Session 12

Title: Multi-SDO Collaboration on 3D Compression and Transmission

3D Compression and Transmission requirements have been the focus of collaboration between Khronos Group, Web3D Consortium and MPEG. During this session, led by Neil Trevett, we will receive a status report, invite discussion on the current work and solicit inputs from meeting participants. Slides used during this session are here and here.

Session 13

Title: Conclusions and Next Steps

The delegates of the meeting will collaborate for this final session to define the next steps they wish their organizations and institutes to pursue and to chart out the future.
