Title: Opening Address
Co-chairs, George Percivall, OGC Chief Architect, and Christine Perey, Spime Wrangler, will kick off the meeting with a short welcome message. 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 formally introduce those Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) currently working separately to put in place existing or to develop new standards that can be utilized by open Augmented Reality systems in the future.
Any SDO with potential contributions to the future of AR is solicited to present during these sessions. Access to public documents describing the activities, and which will inform delegates for discussion during the meeting, are provided via links in the table.
|Standards Development Organization||Speaker/Representative|
Open Mobile Alliance
Doug Knisely, Qualcomm (on behalf of OMA)
Martin Lechner, Wikitude
Neil Trevett, NVIDIA
ISO/JTC 1 SC24 AR Study Group
Open Geospatial Consortium
Gerry Kim, Korea University
Carl Reed, CTO, OGC
Title: AR Architectures
During Session 4, the delegates will be introduced to the state of the art with respect to AR Architectures. We will share results of an extensive survey of existing solutions prepared by Gerry J. Kim, Korea University, and Christine Perey, PEREY Research & Consulting. The survey examined KML/ARML/KHARMA (Argon), junaio, InstantReality, K-Mart, Layar, MPEG-4 and WML/RWW (Microsoft) illustrating how each approaches the representation of real world and digital data.
George Percivall will then present a draft reference model for Augmented Reality. This 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 presentation seeks to identify relevant existing standards and to identify where additional standards might be useful. The reference model for AR will draw from material discussed and developed in the two prior AR Standards Meetings.
The discussion following presentations in this session is an opportunity for the participants to formulate a draft reference model based on state of the art and needs of all ecosystem segments (e.g, developers, content providers, network operators, handset manufacturers, etc).
In addition, the presentations and discussion will aid to prioritize the areas in which standards are emerging and/or most urgently needed.
Title: Collaboration to Depict the Scope of Work of SDOs
With the background provided during the first four sessions of this meeting, and the meeting co-chair, George Percivall, Chief Architect of the OGC, moderating the discussion, the delegates will collaborate to diagrammatically portray the domains of maximum interest to each of the SDOs and industry organizations (members).
The objective of this process is to 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.
Title: Breakout Group Meetings
At the conclusion of Session 5, the participants will determine the breakout groups to which they wish to contribute.
In parallel to the breakout groups of the AR Standards meetings, the delegates who wish to meet with the OGC Mass Market Domain Working Group are invited to attend the public MMDWG session. During the MMDWG meeting (to be conducted in close proximity in order to facilitate movement between the meetings and open to all participants) there will be a presentation on the topic of ARML 2.0 by Martin Lechner.
Title: Day Two Welcome
On the second day of the meeting we will begin by summarizing the first day’s achievements and setting 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 Challenges for AR
In this session we will have four topics covering a variety of new issues that are already impeding the growth of the industry, or could be obstacles to growth in the near future.
Title: New Challenges Part C
In this session, we will hear presentations by meeting participants seeking to highlight new areas of research or to report on achievements of importance to bring standards to Augmented Reality use scenarios or basic architectural challenges.
Title: Augmented Reality Testbeds
When standards are implemented, they also need to be tested for suitability for commercial deployment. In order to anticipate the community needs for AR testbeds, this session’s objective is to hear how different organizations and standards bodies have approached the subject of proving and improving interoperability as part of the standard development process.
After short presentations, a discussion about how the community would like to proceed with respect to certifications and testing will begin.

|Khronos Group||Neil Trevett|
|ETSI Plugtests||Anthony Wiles|
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.
Results of Session 12 are found here.
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.
Next steps and recommendations for next six months are found here.
Conclusions of the third International AR Standards meeting are found here.
