In this strategy-forward session, Prince will outline MicroOLED's principles for mass adoption of AR with a focus on commercial/enterprise applications. The session will address what's holding back AR, and propose a path forward to accellerate adoption across a range of use cases from navigation and wayfinding to process and procedure, which can all be addressed with MicroOLED's Light AR solution, today.
More than half of consumers see shopping as the number one reason to use AR today, which means now is the time to revamp your company’s shopping experiences with AR in mind. Join Patrick Hadley, AR Shopping Technology Project Manger at Snap, to learn how you can start creating AR Try-On Lenses featuring realistic-looking jewelry and accessories. In this session, you’ll learn how to prototype and create unique Fashion AR Try-On Lenses quickly by using Lens Studio and AR templates. Create beautiful graphics by enabling reflections rendering with one click of a button. Plus, add gem rendering to bring even more realism to your Lenses. You’ll also learn how to deploy AR Lenses to Snapchat — where you can reach the more than 250M people who use AR daily — and to your own apps or websites using Camera Kit.

Simulation is a critical mainstay of the initial training and maintenance of abilities across the spectrum of healthcare workers. Though healthcare simulation training has historically been dominated by physical manikin-based simulators supplemented by pen-and-paper tabletop scenarios, VR-based approaches have been rapidly adopted over the past few years.
This panel, consisting of healthcare simulation and training leaders from industry (Air Methods, SimX), academia (University of Pennsylvania, University of Nebraska), and government (US Air Force), will discuss their real-world experience in integrating VR-based simulation into their healthcare enterprises. Particular attention will be paid to lessons learned regarding the benefits and challenges of VR in medical training, best practices for both adopters and solution providers, and approaches for facilitating the collaborative generation of VR-based training scenarios in medicine.
Get ready to buckle up and dive into the world of XR with Tim Ventura and Shelley Peterson, who each have over 20 years of experience in the XR and visualization industry.
Tim's experience involves providing XR solutions that change the way a company does business.
Shelley's experience involves pulling XR solutions into the enterprise space to provide incredibly impactful value.
What happens when you mix the two? It's anyone's guess, but the result is likely to return value.
As a long-time technology trend scout, Leslie Shannon knows that the most successful innovations are the ones that genuinely solve problems - without costing too much.

Although Microsoft has substantially withdrawn from its Mixed Reality and Metaverse ambitions, the left behind a sizable catalog of community built enterprise apps and games, as well as a toolset, the MRTK, on which they were developed. In this talk, we will walk you through the steps required to port a HoloLens app built on one of the MRTK versions to other platforms such as the Magic Leap 2 and the Meta Quest Pro. We hope to demonstrate that, due to clever engineering, whole ecosystems can be moved from one platform to other newer platforms, where they can continue to evolve and thrive.
Please join us for the Welcome Party from 6:00 – 8:00pm at the Hyatt Santa Clara Ballroom, Cypress Room & Mezzanine.
Wind down after a busy first day and enjoy a 'Zappar-ol Spritz' and light snacks.
