The Web3D 2014 Conference program schedule includes multiple X3D Workshops of Future Graphics Standards.

Moderators: Don Brutzman (Naval Postgraduate School), Dick Puk (Intelligraphics) and Leonard Daly (Daly Realism).

This page captures the agenda topics. We are collaboratively adding key points and volunteer scribes will keep minutes here.

X3D Compressed Binary Encoding (CBE) Geometric-Compression Algorithm Candidates

Scheduled time: 0900-1030. Goal outcomes:

Review and improve all published plans & milestones

Review Fraunhofer geometric-compression approach in detail, compare to all of the established X3D metrics

Summary of Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) data compression and XML Security to replace Fast Infoset (FI) in existing X3D CBE Specification

Shall we have a public mesh “contest” or “bakeoff” to confirm that your approach is ready for prime time?

Decide on readiness to proceed with next milestones

X3D 3.4 Evolution

Scheduled time: 0900-1030. Goal outcomes:

Review all planned technology additions

Determine technology and specification contributors, responsible working groups

  • CAD
  • H-Anim
  • Geospatial

Consider how to achieve two independent implementations and X3D scene conformance tests

Next steps and 2014 timeline

Lunch discussions

Scheduled time: 1200-1300. Participants will order lunch in the morning, sandwiches to be delivered to the meeting room.

X3D 4.0 / X3DOM / HTML5 Revolution

Scheduled time: 1300-1500. Goal outcomes:

Review and improve all published plans & milestones

Confirm status of technology components, add to v3.4 list as appropriate

Evolution/convergence strategy for X3D 4.0, X3DOM, HTML5

Lots of great progress! What's next? Discussion.

Mixed Augmented Reality (MAR) Reference Model

Status and plans quicklook.

  • ISO SC24/SC29 MAR Joint Ad Hoc Group (JAHG), Gerry Kim and Marius Preda
  • X3D Mixed Augmented Reality efforts, Gun Lee and Timo Engelke
  • Flag any potential conflicts

Decide on next steps and milestones for 2014
