Metaverse Working Group (VR/AR)

Time 03/06/19 12:00PM-01:00PM

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