Metaverse Working Group
Time 09/27/16 07:30AM-08:30AM
Room Junior Ballroom
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 breakfast. For your convenience, this breakfast station will be located inside the room (Junior Ballroom).
