Learn insider tips and tricks about the new media APIs you need to develop for the billion-dollar, billion- user embedded and mobile multimedia markets!

Khronos is a not-for-profit consortium that has developed the OpenGL ES, OpenVG, OpenMAX, OpenSL ES, OpenKODE and COLLADA open API standards for accelerating handheld and embedded media. These royalty-free, market- enabling APIs have been created over the last four years by Khronos Member companies, and at Emerging Technology Forums , these experts teach you how to use them.

If you develop games and multimedia for cell phones or consumer electronics... or advanced embedded graphics applications... Then you don't want to miss this event!

Where to find us

The Khronos Group sessions are near the exhibit area, upstairs in the west building in rooms W303 and W304.

(We reference W303 on this map because it is actually a little easier to identify. W304 is larger and has several entrances, whereas W303 only has one.)
