IEEE AR Head Mount Display Summit

Sponsored by the IEEE Standards Association and the IEEE Industry Applications Society

Join the IEEE IAS and IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) at Augmented Reality and Headmounted Display Summit, to gain insights into the opportunities for reduced risk and improved performance through the introduction of Augmented Reality (AR)-assisted workflows in the oil and gas industry.

Are you looking how augmented reality can be a part of your industry? Are you concerned how this technology can affect you work practices and workflows? Are you using AR already and are looking at what the industry has to offer?

Attend presentations, panel sessions and demonstrations by participating organizations that will provide insight into best practices and highlight practical approaches for integrating AR-enhanced information visualization components into industry processes and workflows.

Who Should Attend

Information technology professionals working in oil and gas and industrial industry, vendors serving these industries, and providers of AR components, systems and services.
