The Khronos Group is happy to return to SIGGRAPH Asia for the 9th time!

Following our successful participation at SIGGRAPH Asia 2015 in Kobe, the Khronos Group is excited to demonstrate and educate about Khronos APIs at SIGGRAPH Asia 2016 in Macao. SIGGRAPH Asia Macao is an ideal opportunity for international standards bodies such as Khronos to effectively outreach to the Asian graphics community and keep the information flowing. We look forward to seeing you there!


Khronos Graphics, Compute and Vision APIs – including Vulkan Next Generation GPU Acceleration
7 December, Wednesday
Room Naples 2704,
Level 1,
The Venetian Macao

Discover how over 100 companies cooperate at the Khronos Group to create open, royalty free standards that enable developers to access the power of hardware to accelerate the most demanding tasks in cutting-edge applications – including heterogeneous parallel computation, 3D graphics and vision processing. This session includes the latest updates to API standards including OpenGL, OpenCL, OpenVX, and the recent Vulkan new generation graphics and compute API. The session will explore how modern APIs will accelerate the availability of compelling experiences such as neural-net based driver assistance, virtual and augmented reality, and advanced environmental tracking and 3D reconstruction.

The new Khronos Virtual Reality standards initiative will be covered during this talk.

OpenVX: A Standard API for Accelerating Computer Vision
7 December, Wednesday
14:15 - 18:00
Room Sicily 2405-2406
(Room 3),
The Venetian Macao
OpenVX enables performance and power-optimized computer vision functionality, especially important in embedded and real-time use cases. The course covers both the function-based API and the graph API that enable OpenVX developers to efficiently run computer vision algorithms on heterogeneous computing architectures. A set of example algorithms from computational photography and advanced driver assistance mapped to the graph API is discussed. Also covered is the relationship between OpenVX and OpenCV, as well as OpenCL. The course includes hands-on practice session that gets the participants started on solving real computer vision problems using OpenVX.
