AMD: GDC 2019 presentations now onlineIf you weren’t able to attend GDC this year to catch the AMD Advanced Graphics Techniques Tutorial Day and the AMD Sponsored Sessions in person, or you did but still wanted to grab the presentation content for your archives, AMD thought it’d be a good idea to put together a list for both, like they did last year. Check out the lists for session and speaker names, and direct download links with file types and sizes.

There are several great Khronos related meetings for April 2019: "OpenXR 0.90 Provisional Specification Review" on April 10th in Cambridge MA USA, "Munich Meetup April 2019" on April 12th in Munich Germany with Dr Chajdas and friends covering Vulkan, SPIR-V and GLSL, and starting on April 16th is a three part meet up on "A Gentle Introduction to Shaders 1" in London UK. Learn more about these meet ups and how Khronos can help support your Khronos related meet up.

Khronos will be holding their Annual GDC Developer Day Sessions on March 19th in Moscone West Room 2020. The complete schedule is available online:

  • glTF and WebGL - 10:00am – 11:00am
  • OpenXR – State of the Union – 11:20am – 12:20pm
  • Vulkan – State of the Union - 1:20pm – 2:20pm
  • Making Use of New Vulkan Features – 2:40pm – 3:40pm
  • Bringing Fortnite to Mobile with Vulkan and OpenGL ES – 4:00pm – 5:00pm
  • Ubisoft's Experience Developing with Vulkan – 5:30pm – 6:30pm
Running all day March 18-19 will be the Khronos OpenXR Table at VRDC. Finally on March 20th starting at 6:30pm, there will be the annual WebGL/WebVR Meetup to be held in Galvanize. In past years there were over 200 people attending with only standing room and people being turned away. If you want to get in, show up early. This event will be live streamed on the Silicon Valley WebGL group on Facebook.

Khronos Group at GDC 2019 - Developer Day sessions, OpenXR Table and WebGL MeetupIf you are attending GDC 2019, be sure to mark March 19th in your calendar. Khronos will be hosting the annual Developer Day sessions in the Moscone West, Room 2020 from 10am to 6:30PM. This year there will be six (6) sessions covering glTF, WebGL, OpenXR, Vulkan and OpenGL ES. There will also be an OpenXR table at VRDC where you can learn more about OpenXR, talk with OpenXR working group members, and learn how your company can implement or join in the development of this important industry standard. The Khronos Group is once again sponsoring the WebGL/WebVR Meetup. Last year we had over 200 RSVPs and an amazing lineup of speakers. Join Khronos member Patrick Cozzi (Cesium) and other speakers for this gathering of the Silicon Valley WebGL/WebVR meetup group.

During the two weeks of October 17-26, Neil Trevett, president of the Khronos Group, will visit a few cities in China to speak at local conventions, universities and member companies. Khronos is looking forward to meeting with local Khronos members, academias and the developer community, to share the latest updates about Khronos APIs. A complete list of public talks at conferences and free public sessions & registration is now online.

Codeplay are pleased to announce that Andrew Richards, CEO & Founder, Charles Macfarlane, VP Marketing & Rod Burns, Developer Relations Manager, will be at this year's AutoSens in Brussels, exhibiting from 17th to 20th September. Codeplay will be there to discuss the use of open standards such as OpenCL and SYCL on heterogeneous processor solutions to enable the latest vision and machine learning applications for automotive.

First OpenXR Demonstration at SIGGRAPHAt SIGGRAPH we’re excited to show the first demonstration of the OpenXR standard. It’ll be shown with a StarVR headset and a Microsoft Mixed Reality headset working through the OpenXR runtime through a plugin for Unreal Engine 4. The main demo will be at the Khronos BOF session: Standardizing All the Realities: A Look at OpenXR, at 1 p.m. on August 15, and another demo will be shown throughout the show at the StarVR booth (#412). Those interested in attending can see more information on our website.

The glTF session at SIGGRAPH may only be 50 minutes long, but it will be action packed. Don't miss this years fast moving glTF session with these speakers:

  • Ecosystem update: Patrick Cozzi, Cesium
  • glTF for artists: Patrick Ryan, Microsoft
  • TurboSquid - Beau Perschall
  • Facebook - Pär Winzell
  • Microsoft - Gary Hsu and Cedric Caillaud
  • STK - Alex Wood, AGI
  • VSCode - Ed Mackey, AGI
  • Industrial AR with glTF - Johannes Beh, Fraunhofer
  • Google Draco - Frank Galligan
  • Texture transmission - Mark Callow
  • IKEA - Martin Enthed

2018 Embedded Vision Summit - May 22-24 - Registration now openDon’t miss this year’s OpenVX Workshop at Embedded Vision Summit. Khronos will present a day-long hands-on workshop all about OpenVX cross-platform neural network acceleration API for embedded vision applications. We’ve developed a new curriculum so even if you attended in past years, this is a do-not-miss, jam-packed tutorial with new information on computer vision algorithms for feature tracking and neural networks mapped to the graph API. We’ll be doing a hands-on practice session that gives participants a chance to solve real computer vision problems using OpenVX with the folks who created the API. We’ll also be talking about the OpenVX roadmap and what’s to come. Registration is now open. Early bird pricing ends April 10th.

Registration now open for the Khronos Standards for Neural Networks and Embedded Vision workshop at the Embedded Vision Summit in Santa Clara. Early bird pricing is now $99. This seminar is intended for engineers, researchers, and software developers who develop vision and neural network applications and want to benefit from transparent HW acceleration. Also, managers that want to get a general understanding of the structure and uses of Khronos standards.
