Earlier this month a GDC 2015 session was listed for showing off "glNext", the next-generation OpenGL. This major advancement for a cross-platform, multi-purpose graphics API is going to be presented by Valve, Epic Games, Unity, and the Khronos Group, among others. Besides the GDC session for glNext, on the same day they'll be having a separate event about this new API.

After the morning GDC 2015 session in San Francisco, nearby there is going to be an event with "More on the Next Generation of Graphics and Compute API." The event will be led by Neil Trevett (President of the Khronos Group and NVIDIA employee), Pierre-Loup Griffais (Valve Linux developer), and Tom Olson who at ARM is the glNext Work Group Chair.

For those going to be at GDC or around the Bay Area on 5 March, the details on the OpenGL/OpenCL events that week can be found at Khronos.org. It looks like 5 March will be a great day for next-gen graphics news.
