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:
This session will feature a series of short presentations from ARM, Imagination Technologies, NVIDIA, HUONE, DMP, Rightware & Takumi
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.

Khronos Pavilion for Member Booths
The Khronos Group is back as an exhibitor for its 3rd year at SIGGRAPH Asia and this year numerous Khronos Members have taken booths together in a large Pavilion (to the left side of the show floor after you enter.) We are proud to offer:
An exciting array of Khronos member booths, each offering cutting edge demonstrations using Khronos technology… see listings below!
An on-booth theater with comfy seats showing looping technology presentations… drop in any time!
Free laminated reference cards on most key Khronos APIs… while supplies last!
GV330 (OpenVG 1.1) V300 core is a dedicated 2D vector graphic accelerator IP core complying to OpenVG standard.
GV500 (OpenGL ES 1.1, OpenVG 1.1) GV500 core is a 3D graphic accelerator IP core that also has the 2D vector graphics complying to OpenVG standard. GV500 conforms to both OpenVG 1.1 and OpenGL ES1.1 standard APIs.
Kyungpook National University provides several courses related to embedded systems and software. It also focuses on the development of high performance graphics libraries, currently by Mobile Graphics Lab(http://mobilegraphicslab.knu.ac.kr/). Many professors and researchers will join soon.
Visit the DMP booth to see demonstrations of these products:
PICA200 (OpenGL ES 1.1) A 3D Graphics IP Series capable of providing low-power-consumption, yet high-performance and highly functional graphics with DMP's original technology (DMP MAESTRO technology)
SMAPH-S, PICA200 Lite, PICA200 for FPGA (OpenGL ES 1.1, OpenGL ES 2.0)
Low-power-consumption and high-performance 3D Graphics IP Series compatible with OpenGL ES.
3rd party middleware tools are supported.
SMAPH-F (OpenVG 1.1)
Low-power-consumption and high-performance Vector Graphics IP Series compatible with OpenVG.
Adobe Flash is supported.
OpenGL ES Learning Kit for Android (OpenGL ES 1.1) OpenGL ES Learning Kit for Android(TM), which are self-study e-Learning materials that enable developers to learn about 3D graphics programming using OpenGL ES on Android platforms.
The Khronos Group is a not for profit, member-funded consortium focused on the creation of royalty-free open standards for parallel computing, graphics and dynamic media on a wide variety of platforms and devices.

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.
Intercontinental COEX and Intercontinental Grand are both right in the COEX complex where we will host the DevU session: http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/
COEX InterContinental Seoul
159 Samseong-Dong, Gangnam-Gu, Seoul 135-975, South Korea
COEX InterContinental Seoul - Seoul, South Korea A luxury hotel in downtown Seoul, COEX InterContinental Seoul is ideally placed at the Korea World Trade Center complex, making the hotel ideal for business customers as well as those on vacation. Guests can use the services and facilities here or at the nearby Grand InterContinental Seoul, and settle the bill as one. The COEX Mall and COEX Exhibition Center are both within easy reach of this Seoul hotel, and it serves as an excellent base from which to explore the lively and bustling city. Nearby attractions include the National Museum of Korea, Gyeongbok Palace, and the shopping district of Itaewon.
Grand InterContinental Seoul
159-8 Samseong-Dong, Gangnam-Gu, Seoul 135-732, South Korea
Grand InterContinental Seoul - Seoul, South Korea Grand Intercontinental Seoul is a luxury hotel located in the heart of downtown Seoul. Regarded as the city's premier hotel, Grand InterContinental Seoul is ideal for both business and leisure travellers. With world-class facilities and impeccable service, guests can expect to be pampered for the entirety of their stay. While staying at Grand Intercontinental Seoul, guests are also welcome to use the services and facilities at nearby COEX InterContinental Seoul and settle the bill as one. Nearby attractions include the bustling shopping district of Itaewon, the National Museum of Korea, and Gyeongbok Palace.
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.
