During the past 15th and 16th of June at Barcelona was celebrated the W3C Workshop: “Augmented Reality on the Web”.

This W3C Workshop was held to discuss whether and how the exciting opportunities offered by Augmented Reality can benefit from Web technologies. Augmented Reality on the Web was hosted in Barcelona by Escola Tècnica Superior d’Enginyeria de Telecommunicació de Barcelona (ETSETB) at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). It attracted over 40 attendees and 22 papers. The participants represented a broad range of businesses including telecom operators, device manufacturers, AR content and platform developers, AR users from the advertising world, academics and standards bodies.”

GSyC/LibreSoft was invited to participate in the event thanks to their experience with LibreGeoSocial regarding social networks and augmented reality. During the event, GSyC/LibreSoft exposed the paper: “Mobile Augmented Reality browsers should allow labeling objects”, and a presentation about the needs of allowing users to tag the reality with augmented reality technologies. Also, a live demonstration of LibreGeoSocial was made, about the capabilities of tagging the real world.

The experience was very interesting because it was a workshop organized by the W3C. It was focused in the importance of using standards for augmented reality, a good opportunity to point to FLOSS solutions to achieve this goals.
