"Samsung (News - Alert) is pleased to have assisted in the creation of WebCL through chairing the WebCL Working Group," said Tasneem Brutch, chair of the WebCL working group, and director at Advanced Software Platforms, Samsung Research America.
"Developers have been requesting C++ for OpenCL to help them build large applications quickly and efficiently and there are lots of useful C++ libraries that want to port to OpenCL and SYCL makes this possible," said Andrew Richards, CEO at Codeplay and chair of the SYCL working group.
"Robust conformance tests are critical to an open standard, as they ensure cross-vendor consistency, and enable protection of the standard," said Neil Trevett, chair of the OpenCL working group, president of the Khronos Group and vice president of mobile ecosystem at NVIDIA
"EGL is in widespread use and is increasingly playing a crucial role in the Khronos ecosystem as it evolves into the central hub for interoperability between multiple APIs on multiple underlying platforms and EGL 1.5 is a significant step to enabling functionality across many platforms including Android, X Windows and Ubuntu (News - Alert)-based systems," said Alon Or-bach, senior software engineer at Samsung Electronics and chair of the EGL working group."

About The Khronos Group
Since its formation in 2000, the Khronos Group has been an industry consortium with the mission of creating open standards to enable the authoring and acceleration of parallel computing, graphics, vision, sensor processing and dynamic media on a wide variety of platforms and devices. Khronos standards include OpenGL®, OpenGL® ES, WebGL™, OpenCL™, SPIR™, SYCL™, WebCL™, OpenVX™, OpenMAX™, OpenVG™, OpenSL ES™, StreamInput™, COLLADA™ and glTF™. All Khronos members are enabled to contribute to the development of Khronos specifications, are empowered to vote at various stages before public deployment, and are able to accelerate the delivery of their cutting-edge media platforms and applications through early access to specification drafts and conformance tests. More information is available at www.khronos.org
