Augmented Reality on the Web (W3C Workshop)

April 23, 2010

OMWeb is pleased to announce this upcoming workshop:

“Augmented Reality on the Web”
15-16 June 2010 — Barcelona, Spain

The Workshop is supported by W3C and the European Union’s  OMWeb Project.

The workshop will take place at the Barcelona Tech University (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya) and is co-located with the Mobile 2.0 conference that takes place on the following day (17 June).

Augmented reality (AR) is a term for a live direct or indirect view of a real-world environment whose elements are supplemented with, or augmented by computer generated imagery.  AR is a long standing topic in its own right but it has not been developed on the Web platform.  As mobile devices become more powerful and feature-rich, the workshop will explore the possible convergence of AR and the Web.

The objective of this W3C workshop on Augmented Reality on the Web is to provide a single forum for researchers and technologists to discuss the state of the art for AR on the Web, particularly the mobile platform, and what role standardization should play for Open Augmented Reality.

Important dates:
* From today: Send expression of interest
* 29 May: Deadline for position papers
* 7 June: Acceptance notification and registration instructions sent
* 15-16 June: Workshop

More information is available in the Call for Participation.
