Metaverse Working Group (VR/AR)

Time 05/08/18 12:00PM-01:00PM

Room Rancho Santa Fe 3

Session Abstract

NOTE: Lunch will be available in the Rancho Santa Fe Foyer.

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. This group welcomes anyone who has any interest in virtual and augmented reality technology; all experience levels are welcome.
