Upcoming Workshop: Web and Virtual Reality

   28 June 2016
   <https://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/5502>

   W3C announced today Web & Virtual Reality Workshop, 19-20 October 2016, in Mountain View, CA, USA. The event is hosted by Samsung.

   <https://www.w3.org/2016/06/vr-workshop/>

   The combination of improvements in hardware and software capabilities have brought lots of renewed interest in virtual reality experiences. Many of these improved capabilities are available in modern browsers via the Open Web Platform, and thus make the Web a promising ecosystem to create, distribute and enjoy virtual reality applications and services.

   W3C is organizing the workshop to look at the intersection of Web and Virtual Reality technologies. The workshop aims at enabling sharing experiences between practitioners of the field, discuss existing gaps in the Web platform that make some Virtual Reality use cases difficult or impossible in browsers today, and explore what future standards are needed to pave the way for the Web to be one of the major VR platforms.

   Expected topics of the Workshop include:

     * displaying stereoscopic content
     * detecting & adapting to characteristics of VR headsets
     * handling new input methods for VR (gamepad, hand position, etc.)
     * accessible user interfaces and interoperability considerations across VR applications
     * innovative VR applications that provide novel accessibility supports
     * 3D audio
     * 3D media synchronization
     * declarative 3D scenes
     * interoperable formats and codecs for 3D and 360 content
     * displaying and interacting with 360 video and images from HTML
     * bringing VR as progressive enhancement to classic Web browsing
     * 3D video capture (3D camera) and processing (e.g. scene perception)
     * streaming 3D/360 content, streaming real-time 3D content
     * obstacles to high framerate rendering of 3D

   The event is open to all; position statements or expression of interests will be required to participate, due by 16 September 2016.

       The workshop will cover a variety of related issues: how to manage a vocabulary in a collaborative environment, how to define an application profile for human and machine consumption, how to request data using a specific profile and, as a prime example of all this - experiences of using "DCAT" that might lead to its extension.
