The Khronos Group is throwing a huge party at SIGGRAPH to celebrate 10 years of OpenGL ES. The OpenGL ES 10th Anniversary party will take place July 24th at the Hilten Anaheim in the California Ballroom A&B at 9PM following the All-Day BOF Blitz™. With over $16K in prizes to be won, and a chance to mingle with the creators of OpenGL ES, this is an event not to be missed. To help celebrate, the Khronos Group is inviting you to help sponsor the party, send us your OpenGL ES stories, and in return you and your company can get some great exposure. We've got some great stories already lined up, which appear on our Party page and in our OpenGL ES yearbook. We hope you can join the Khronos Group for this momentous occasion.
Khronos would like to thank Pragmatic for donating five OpenGL eBooks to the Khronos All-Day BOF Blitz™ and After-Party™. As well, Khronos would like to thank Vivante, the PC Gaming Alliance, Imagination Technologies and more others for their generous donations. Learn more about the upcoming Khronos BOF Blitz™ and After-Party™.

The WebCL API is designed with security as a primary requirement. The Validator will enforce compliance of WebCL kernels with the defined WebCL language restrictions, and prevent out-of-bounds memory accesses. The WebCL kernel Validator will enforce out of bounds memory protections and will perform syntactic validation of WebCL kernels. The WebCL working group received five proposals, in response to the WebCL Validator RFQ. Vincit was selected to implement the WebCL Validator. Initial design discussions have started, which will be followed by development. All discussion and development will be done in public on firstname.lastname@example.org, and the project will be set up as open source.
