Metaverse Working Group

Time 05/17/16 12:00PM-01:00PM

Room Dupage (3rd Floor)

Session Abstract

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 working group has the specific goal of implementing standards-based, interoperable, interlinked virtual environments.

Please note that this working meeting will have access to the conference lunch. For your convenience, this lunch station will be located in the foyer space on the meeting room floor.
