Khronos BOF Sponsors
Khronos would like to thank the following sponsors who have helped make this event a success:
Vicki and Dave Shreiner,
Brian Paul, Ken Russell
Khronos is delighted to observe ten years of participation in SIGGRAPH North America with a huge new “Member Demonstration Pavilion,” an Open House hospitality suite for Press & Educators, and five BOFS covering a variety of our APIs.
For the last ten years, Khronos Group open standards have been the foundation of a multi-billion dollar industry, and for those same ten years Khronos has been honored to be part of SIGGRAPH. This year in Vancouver on August 9, 10 and 11, 2011, we have a greater presence than in previous years, and some exciting new developments.
CHECKOUT the new "Khronos Pavilion" Booth #663 right in the middle of the SIGGRAPH show floor with numerous Khronos member company demos!
TEACH Khronos APIs! Professors and trainers are invited to an Open House to discuss coursework contributions to the “Khronos Institute of Training & Education”
LEARN from five Khronos BOFs spread out over August 10 and 11; each with updates on Khronos APIs, demos and door prizes
FREE Khronos API Reference Card Sets ($100 value) offered to anyone that completes a “Khronos Pavilion Tour”
NEWS will be announced at the show so please contact Jonathan Hirshon for more details
Now hosting five BOFs with updates on Khronos APIs; see demos and win door prizes
Khronos Group founders and members are excited to visit Vancouver to talk about how Khronos APIs let developers tap into cutting edge graphics and media processing on platforms ranging from high-end workstations to mobile phones. Khronos BOFs are spread over two full days and this year there are five BOF sessions, where you will the latest updates on the state of Khronos APIs:
