March 2014 AR Community Meeting

The Tenth AR Community meeting took place March 26-27, 2014.

The agenda may be consulted at any time. This page is also where the slides for each session are found.

        —————————–

The community of people seeking to advance work towards open and interoperable AR will meet on March 26-27, 2014 in Arlington, VA. 

Meeting Goals

The face-to-face community meetings are designed to promote the discussion among ecosystem stakeholders for the development of open and interoperable AR content and experiences. During the meeting on March 26, we will work side by side with AR industry leaders and SDO Work Group chairs to: 

Augmented Reality developers participating in the community are on the front lines to learn about and influence the direction of new tools.  The developers encountering obstacles to audience reach and end user adoption as a result of proprietary technology "silos" are encouraged to attend to learn about the open specifications and APIs under development, and to provide their opinions. 

All community members are invited to suggest topics for the agenda via submission of position papers.

Position Papers

In addition to the invited speaker presentations and moderated plenary collaborations, contributions to the AR Community may be made in advance of the meeting in the form of position papers. Submitters are requested to follow published guidelines for position papers. The position papers and recommended reading for the previous community meeting are available on this page.
