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.

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 Fourth Community Meeting or since it's last report to the community.

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.

Access to public documents describing the SDO's activities, and which will inform delegates for discussion during the meeting, are provided via links in the table (to come). For example, we recommend that SDO representatives prepare, in advance of this meeting (and submit to by March 10), specific questions that they wish the community to discuss and topics on which they would like feedback.

Session 4

Title: Augmented Reality Reference Model

During Session 4, the presentation and discussion will focus first on the Draft AR Reference Model since the fourth meeting. This session will be led and the discussion facilitated by George Percivall, Chief Architect of the OGC.

The AR reference model is based on two International standards for software architecture: IEEE 1471 and ISO/IEC 10746. The presentation will use the architectural viewpoints defined in ISO/IEC 10746 Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing (RM-ODP):  Enterprise, Information, Computation, Engineering and Technology.

The discussion following these presentations is an opportunity for the participants to provide feedback and input to the draft AR Reference Model and AR stack based on state of the art and needs of all ecosystem segments (e.g, developers, content providers, network operators, handset manufacturers, etc).

Session 5

Title: Classifications of Standards with Respect to AR

With the background provided during the first four sessions of this meeting, and a position paper prepared by one or more of the participants of the meeting, the delegates will collaborate to diagrammatically portray the domains of activity (maximum interest to) of each of the SDOs and industry organizations (members).

The objective is to create a framework (e.g., the honeycomb figure) that depicts the current work and shows direction of future work (to fill areas neglected to date).
In this process we will depict the intersections and overlaps in such a fashion that the organizations can then further define their agendas and establish collaborative task forces for achieving their mutual objectives with minimal conflicts or redundancies.

The outcome of this session will be documented via (at least) an updated version of the AR Standards Landscape Community Resource. It can be included in the AR Reference Model and be cited by other SDOs.

Session 6

Title: Breakout Group Meetings

At the conclusion of Session 5, the participants will determine the breakout groups to which they wish to contribute.

The breakout sessions can focus on specific sections of the new AR Standards Landscape, on the improvement of any other Community Resource, or may also serve as the first face-to-face meeting of a Special Interest Group within the community.

Session 7

Title: Day One Summary and Day Two Welcome

On the second day of the meeting we will begin at 8:30 AM with a detailed synthesis of the first day’s achievements. Beginning at 9 AM, we will set the stage for the second day’s sessions designed to examine new challenges and to hear the progress being made by industry and researchers working on the future of Augmented Reality.

Session 8 and 9

Title: New Opportunities and Challenges for AR

In this session we will have six topics covering a variety of new issues that are already impeding the growth of the industry, or new opportunities for collaboration towards AR growth in the near future. If you have a topic you would like to contribute, please notify Christine Perey.

Topic Speakers

AR Application Format (MPEG)


Marius Preda, Artemis

Indoor Location and Positioning for AR (OGC IndoorGML)


Ki-Joune Li, Pusan National University

Augmented Reality for Urban Infrastructure


Ton de Vries, Bentley
3D and Augmented Reality User Experience Design

Session 10

Title: Advance Community Resources

The participants of the meeting engage in collaboration on vocabulary, AR use cases, AR standards landscape, architecture and publish updates to the existing files, or notes for future study.

Session 11

Title: Break Out Groups

At the conclusion of Session 10, the participants will determine the breakout groups to which they wish to contribute.

The breakout sessions can focus on specific sections of the new AR Standards Landscape, on the improvement of any other Community Resource, or may also serve as the first face-to-face meeting of a Special Interest Group within the community.

Session 12

Title: Next Steps and Conclusions

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. By way of a facilitated discussion amongst the meeting participants, the meeting with close with a clearer agenda for the coming months.
