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. Presentation in PDF

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 Fifth 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 July 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

Presentation in PDF

During Session 4, the presentation and discussion will focus first on the Draft AR Reference Model since the fifth meeting. This session will be led and the discussion facilitated by Marius Preda, co-editor of AR RM.

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.

We will take inputs 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: Breakout Group Meetings

At the conclusion of Session 4, the participants will determine the focus (topics) of breakout groups and how they wish to contribute.

The breakout sessions will focus on specific sections of the AR Reference Model and will contribute to the success of Session 6.

Session 6

Title: AR Reference Model Wrap Up

During this session we will incorporate all inputs developed during the previous sessions into one complete document that will be submitted to the ISO/IEC JTC1 SC29 WG 11 AR Reference Model editors for the purpose of review and integration into the Committee Draft version of the ISO 23000-14 specification as a submission to Oct 15th meeting.

Session 7

Title: Day One Summary and Day Two Welcome

Presentation in PDF

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.
