The European leg of the Augmented World Expo (AWE) 2019 will commence this October, held across two days in Munich, Germany. Today, the AWE EU 2019 agenda has gone live, revealing a rich lineup of talks focused on current and future augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) technology.
Now in its fourth year, AWE EU 2019 will feature some of the leading spatial computing companies from around the world. Taking to the stage will be the likes of Ori Inbar, Co-Founder, AWE and Super Ventures, holding a session called ‘Enter the Next Dimension with Spatial Computing’, while a multi-panel contingent featuring the BBC, ARTE, Verison Media Group, Euro News and Immersionn will discuss ‘XR’s impact on Storytelling & Journalism.’
Lenovo will be hosting an important keynote address, Magic Leap will be providing a ‘Getting Started Guide’ for developers; Microsoft will be holding a session called ‘Modeling Reality: How do we build a map and a stateful model of reality?’, and Blippar’s Ambarish Mitra is discussing ‘How AR and 5G will make 3D Internet a reality,’ to name a few.
“The European market for spatial computing is quietly becoming a contender for the world’s top spot driven largely by industry adoption on the one hand, and creative tools and applications on the other hand. The calibre of speakers embodying this will once again position AWE as the epicentre of the AR and VR industry,” says Ori in a statement.
Alongside all the talks AWE EU 2019 will also have its usual expo show floor featuring over 100 exhibitors demoing the latest XR technology. Exhibitors include Admix, Lenovo, ViewAR, Atheer, AVRSpot, Bosch Automotive Service Solutions, Crunchfish, Delta Reality and many more.
