For the last ten years, Khronos open standards have been the foundation of a multi-billion dollar industry. Khronos Group executives and founders are excited to visit Beijing again to talk about how these Khronos APIs let developers tap into cutting edge graphics and media processing on platforms ranging from high-end workstations to mobile phones. This all-day session will give you up-to-the-minute updates on OpenGL, OpenCL, and COLLADA; and handheld graphics standards such as OpenGL ES and OpenVG.

This invitation is to students, professors and academic official to attend and learn about Khronos. Please come to our conference and luncheon and help Khronos celebrate its 10th anniversary as a leader in developing digital media standards.

At this session we will cover:

  • OpenGL 4.1 - a streamlining of the OpenGL API that also adds cutting edge acceleration functionality
  • OpenCL 1.1 - portable heterogeneous parallel computing that works smoothly with OpenGL to open a new world of visual computing opportunities
  • OpenSL ES 1.0 - an API for enhanced mobile audio that forms the final piece of the Khronos mobile ecosystem
  • OpenVG – delivering high-quality vector graphics for compelling user interfaces and text on small screen devices
  • WebGL - a new initiative spearheaded by Mozilla with Khronos to bring dynamic 3D graphics to web content everywhere.


  • Khronos Group DevU at Tsinghua University - 9:00-17:30
  • Lunch will be at Quanjude Restaurant near the Tsinghua University Int'l Conf. Center – just a short three minute walk.
  • We will have 80 seats for guests and another room will have 20 seats for Speakers, Professors and VIP guests.
