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

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.

Webinar: Mastering the Khronos Blender glTF 2.0 ExporterThe Khronos Group presents Mastering the Khronos Blender glTF 2.0 Exporter webinar. Open to all, the webinar will be held online on October 24th at 10am. This 1-hour webinar will be presented by the people who developed the exporter, and we’ll of course end with a Q&A session. glTF 2.0 users and Blender developers are the target audience.

The Khronos Group has updated the Birds of a Feather schedule and speaker list. If you will be at #SIGGRAPH2017 be sure to visit the BOF Blitz and After Party! BOFs include: OpenVX, NNEF, OpenCL and SYCL; COLLADA; glTF; WebGL; OpenXR; and Vulkan, OpenGL & OpenGL ES to wrap up the day. glTF has just posted their list of speakers, and what a line they have for you in store for you. At the end of the day, be sure to hang around for the BOF Blitz After-Party. The BOFs will be live streamed with video available afterwards, and t-shirts available online, for all those folks not attending.

A full-day of technical sessions aimed at providing 3D developers a wealth of best practice (and worst practice!) to help you learn how to get the most out of Vulkan in your engine, application or title. KhronosUK Meetup group is delighted that ARM are hosting the meeting for the day, and also inviting the group to join them for a drink after at the Cambridge Beer Festival! If you can't make this event, no worries, you can catch the livestream here. Check out the complete schedule. @Croteam, @DSFishlabs, and @feralgames will be presenting their experience of moving their games to Vulkan.

Come to this accessible talk on the state of the industry for the layperson and enthusiast, and hear from Khronos, the industry consortium that produces the open standards driving this revolution. Khronos members such as Intel, Xilinx, Huawei, AMD, NVIDIA, and Codeplay are here in Toronto for the International Workshop on OpenCL (IWOCL) at the University of Toronto May 16 – 18, 2017. This event is free to attend and open to the public, but RSVP is required to ensure seating is available. Register online to attend this free event open to the public.

Khronos Developer Blog: IWOCL – where you learn the latest on OpenCLFive years ago The International Workshop on OpenCL (IWOCL – "eye-wok-ul") started as a small OpenCL-focused conference. In 2017 it has grown to three full days filled with tutorials, talks, posters and many technical discussions. You’ll hear attendees (and yourself) saying, "I did not know this was going on and I should have known it before." It is a great place to learn the latest on OpenCL. Learn more about the history of IWOCL and the upcoming IWOCL event May 16-18, 2017 in Toronto, Canada.
