I expect that Web3D Consortium is going to form an AR Working Group,
probably in January.  However there was not a good connection made
at last week's TPAC meeting regarding AR.

I recommend that we work on the charter for the AR Working Group
while working together in Seoul next month.  Hopefully we can start
a draft prior to that meeting.  Anita and I are taking responsibility
for starting that charter, it will be worked on cooperatively using
the Web3D Member Wiki.

We will also probably start a Declarative 3D Incubator Group in W3C.
Some more work is needed to coordinate activities.  This is also a
good topic for discussion during our visit.

Here is our current plan for working on these topics with Fraunhofer.
- 16 Tuesday, X3D HTML5 call: Augmented Reality AR Charter and Mobile Profile
- 23 Tuesday, X3D HTML5 call: W3C Declarative 3D Interest Group possibilities

Sounds interesting.  I hope that this can be publicized via the Web3D websites.

Agreed, sounds good.  We should probably prioritize as follows:
1. Proposals ready (or nearly ready) for inclusion in X3D v3.3
2. Technical work in progress
3. New work

The key to any proposal being supported in X3D v3.3 will be examples
and multiple implementations. May I suggest that Korea Chapter
participants start populating the wiki sections for the
X3D v3.3 specification with details for your mature proposals,
available at

We plan to continue the following day to complete any work needed
for the proposed changes in v3.3.

> 4. Web3D Editing Meeting, COEX Convention Center, Seoul, Korea,
> December 15, Wednesday, 10:00am - 5:00pm, 2010

Expected attendees:  Myeong Won Lee, Kwan Hee Yoo, Gun Lee,
Soon Hung Han, Dick Puk, Don Brutzman.

We will be working on the wiki page above to finalize specification
prose and plans.  I am hoping that we can also work on the X3D v3.3
XML schema.

Anyone else in Web3D is also welcome to join, in person or possibly
by phone.  We will investigate whether this is possible (i.e. not
too expensive) if there is interest in  someone dialing into the
Web3D Conference line.  We also expect to have good internet connection
so Skype will be an alternative.

Tech Talk will be 16 December at 1000-1100 on the SIGGRAPH ASIA
show floor.

We are also asking for updates to build a new X3D Showcase DVD.
That message has just been sent.

Very good

> 7. Scheduling the next Korean chapter meeting

We decided on the following:

December 8, Wednesday, at 5:00pm PDT (December 9, Thursday, at 10:00am Korea time)

Our agenda will be final preparations for the SIGGRAPH ASIA meetings.

all the best, Don
