Khronos Group is very pleased to offer to host the ACM Silicon Valley Chapter January 2011 meeting. Who is Khronos Group? We are a ten-year old, not for profit industry consortium that creates open standards to enable the authoring and acceleration of parallel computing, graphics and dynamic media on a wide variety of platforms and devices. Khronos standards include:

While most of Khronos Group development work is done on weekly teleconferences, three times a year Khronos Group members meet in person. The January ACM Silicon Valley Chapter meeting is a rare opportunity for you to meet the developers of these standards, as this meeting coincides with the meeting of the Khronos organization.

We will open the January 20 session with a few demos and refreshments, and many of the Khronos Group Work Group chairs will be on hand to greet you. After normal ACM meeting business is addressed, our presentation will give an overview of Khronos technology with a special focus on OpenVG.

OpenVG™ is a royalty-free, cross-platform API that provides a low-level hardware acceleration interface for vector graphics libraries such as Flash and SVG. OpenVG is targeted primarily at handheld devices that require portable acceleration of high-quality vector graphics for compelling user interfaces and text on small screen devices - while enabling hardware acceleration to provide fluidly interactive performance at very low power levels

We are eager to customize our presentation to address any technology or topics that are of interest to you, and to make that easy, the simple registration form below allows us to both get a proper catering headcount and an opportunity for you to request topics or ask questions which we can address in our presentation.

We look forward to meeting you there!
