The position papers and recommended pre-reading materials are available.
The community of people seeking to advance work towards open and interoperable AR will meet on May 29-30, 2013 in New York, New York.
The face-to-face meetings are designed to promote the discussion between stakeholders of the ecosystem for the development of open and interoperable AR content and experiences. During the two day meeting, we will work side by side with AR industry leaders and SDO Work Group chairs to:
- learn the status of activities and discuss progress in all relevant standards development organizations, including
continue development of the community resources including but not limited to:
- the AR Use Cases and Scenarios
- the AR Standards Glossary of terms
- AR Standards landscape and status of what each SDO we are tracking is doing in the area of AR
- Hands-free display and context capture system requirements and standards, and
- AR Interoperability requirements, experimental methodology and testing procedures
- initiate development of new community resources, as needed, and
- discuss emerging challenges which may be addressed via standards or open source interfaces.
Augmented Reality developers encountering obstacles to audience reach and end user adoption as a result of proprietary technology "silos" are also encouraged to attend in order to learn about the open specifications and APIs under development, and to provide their opinions. AR developers participating in the community are on the front lines to learn about and influence the direction of new tools. Demonstrations will be used to assist in stimulating discussion among participants during meeting session 11.
All community members are invited to suggest topics for the agenda via submission of position papers.
In addition to the invited speaker presentations and moderated plenary collaborations, contributions to the 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 this meeting is available on this page.
