The Khronos Group - Media Authoring and Acceleration

The Khronos Group is a not for profit industry consortium creating open standards for the authoring and acceleration of parallel computing, graphics and dynamic media on a wide variety of platforms and devices. All Khronos members are able to contribute to the development of Khronos API specifications, are empowered to vote at various stages before public deployment, and are able to accelerate the delivery of their cutting-edge 3D platforms and applications through early access to specification drafts and conformance tests.

Khronos Presentation Speakers Bios

Shreiner, Dave - Director, Graphics and GPU Computing, ARM


I'm an expert in computer graphics and GPU computing, particularly rendering using OpenGL and OpenGL ES. I'm also the co-author of "The OpenGL Programming Guide" (currently in its seventh edition; I've done the last five), "The OpenGL Reference Manual" (out of print, unfortunately), "The OpenGL ES Programming Guide" (first edition), and "Interactive Computer Graphics: A Top-Down Approach with Shader-Based OpenGL" (sixth edition). I am also the series editor for Pearson's OpenGL professional library. I have also presented various courses on OpenGL and OpenGL ES at conferences worldwide, including 13 SIGGRAPH conferences (16 if you include SIGGRAPH Asia), and authored the first commercial OpenGL course for Silicon Graphics Computer Systems (SGI - the creators of OpenGL). Additionally, I've also volunteered for ACM/SIGGRAPH for many years, and was recently selected to be the conference chair of the 2014 SIGGRAPH conference to be held in Vancouver, B.C.
