Call for Participation

IEEE VR/AR Working Group is developing eight standards for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Having attracted participants from 200+ companies and institutions all over the world, the working group now is one of the largest forces dedicated to VR/AR standardization. The working group participants already include device manufacturers, content providers, service providers, technology developers, government agencies and other parties relevant to VR/AR, constituting an excellent mixture for the standards to be widely adopted.

Technology is evolving very fast, especially in VR/AR. Our current being-developed standards only cover a small piece of the VR/AR landscape. We are actively collecting and identifying standardization needs. Some of them could become new projects in the coming months. We welcome interested stakeholders to join our efforts. We seek to provide unique value in the area of VR/AR, based on our depth and breadth of technical expertise. We also are interested in collaborating with other organizations.

The 2nd plenary meeting will be held June 2, 2017 in Santa Clara, CA, USA.

The 3rd plenary meeting will be held August 2, 2017 in Los Angeles, CA, USA.
