Metaverse Working Group Kickoff
Time 10/29/14 12:15PM-01:15PM
Room Room 202
Advances in immersive head mounted displays are driving us toward a liminal point in terms of adoption and utilization of virtual environments. These trends will have profound implications for the fundamental nature how we share information and collaborate. The research and education community is uniquely positioned to catalyze the creation of an open, interoperable, standards-based “Metaverse” of linked virtual environments that leverage these technologies. Standards exist today, but many unsolved problems remain in areas including security, identity, and distributed architecture. This new Internet2 working group will have the specific goal of implementing standards-based, interoperable, interlinked virtual environments. The first meeting of this group will include drafting of the group's charter and accepting nominations for the group's chairperson.
