Register for this DevU today!

This DevU is open to all SIGGRAPH ASIA attendees at no additional cost.

For the last ten years, Khronos technology experts have taught developers and members of the press about the Khronos standards ecosystem. Khronos standards are fundamental to many of the technologies you will see on display at SIGGRAPH Asia. If you manufacture or develop multimedia content for games, DCC, CAD or mobile devices, you should attend Khronos Group’s DevU (Developer University) to learn about these new industry standards for royalty-free multimedia development:

  • Applications driving next-generation handset requirements
  • Opportunities opened up by innovation and standardization in graphics and mobile gaming
  • Technological advances in multimedia handset technology

Khronos Group open standards are the foundation of all the products on display at the “Khronos Pavilion” at SIGGRAPH Asia. If you develop multimedia content, you should attend this 90 minute session to learn from the world's leading experts on computer graphics and interactive techniques. This session is a highly-condensed overview of how Khronos royalty-free APIs let you tap into cutting edge graphics and media processing on platforms ranging from high-end workstations to mobile phones.

Learn the highlights about:

  • Applications driving next-generation handset requirements
  • Opportunities opened up by innovation and standardization in graphics and mobile gaming
  • Technological advances in multimedia handset technology

Courses by Khronos Members

Introduction to OpenCL by Example

Thursday, 16 December | 9:00 午前 - 10:45 午前 | Room 308B/C

Physical and Graphical Effects in OpenCL by Example

Thursday, 16 December | 2:15 pm - 6:00 pm | Room 308B/C

An Introduction to OpenGL 4.0 Programming

Saturday, 18 December | 9:00 am - 12:45 pm | Room E5

OpenGL is the most widely available library for creating interactive computer graphics applications across all of the major computer operating systems. Its uses range from creating applications for scientific visualizations to computer-aided design, interactive gaming and entertainment, and with each new version, its capabilities reveal the most up-to-date features of modern graphics hardware.

This course provides an accelerated introduction to programming OpenGL with an emphasis on the most modern methods for using the library. OpenGL has undergone numerous updates in recent years, which have fundamentally changed how programmers interact with the application programming interface (API) and the skills required for being an effective OpenGL programmer. The most notable of those changes was the introduction of shader-based rendering, which was introduced into the API many years ago, but has recently expanded to subsume almost all functionality in OpenGL. The course summarizes each of the shader stages in OpenGL version 4.0 and methods for specifying data to be used in rendering with OpenGL.

While the annual SIGGRAPH conferences have presented numerous courses on OpenGL over the years, recent revisions to the API, culminating in OpenGL version 4.0, have provided a wealth of new functionality and features that enable creation of ever-richer content. This course builds from demonstrating the use of the most fundamental shader-based OpenGL pipeline to introducing all of the latest shader stages.

Complete details are available on the SIGGRAPH website.

  • Most visitors choose to take an airport shuttle bus instead of a taxi.
  • We recommend either the KAL Limousine Bus or the Korea City Air Terminal Limousine Bus.
  • The red KCAT Limousine Bus will bring you to the City Air Terminal at the COEX Center.
  • The blue KAL Limousine Bus goes directly to many 4 and 5-star hotels throughout the city.
  • These buses run nonstop between Incheon International Airport and Korea City Air Terminal at COEX.
  • They depart every 10-15 minutes from the bus stops 3B East and 10B West on the 1st floor of ICN.
  • The ride is approximately 80-90 minutes.
  • You may purchase the bus ticket at the ticket office located near one of the bus stops or directly from the bus driver.
  • Operating hours: From Incheon Int’l Airport to Korea City Air Terminal: 05:30-22:30
  • Operating hours: From Korea City Air Terminal to Incheon Int’l Airport: 05:20-20:00
  • Operating Interval: Every 5-10 min.
  • Duration of ride: Approximately 80-90 min.
  • Bus fare: KW 13,000 (USD $12)


You can always take a taxi, but remember that it is a long distance from Inchon (ICN) to downtown Seoul and Seoul traffic ranks near the top as the world's worst. This is by far the most expensive way to get into Seoul.
