Hosted and ran the Eurographics 2011 International conference in Computer Graphics, 11-15 April 2011.
Eurographics 2011 was the 32nd annual conference of the European Association for Computer Graphics. Brought nearly 400 distinguished scientists to North Wales. The conference took place in the town of Llandudno in Wales, UK at Venue Cymru. The hosts for 2011 were the Research Institute of Visual Computing, locally organised by the Visualization and Medical Graphics group at the School of Computer Science, Bangor University, chaired by Professor Jonathan C. Roberts.
Hosted over 369 distinguished scientists from around the world to North Wales, who are leading in computer graphics, computer rendering and data visualisation. Attendees came from 33 countries, including UK, German, USA, France, Austria, Spain, Italy, China, Czech Republic, Canada, Switzerland, Japan, Belgium, Hungary, Sweden, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Hong Kong, Portugal, Russia, South Korea, Brasil, Chile, Denmark, India, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway and Prague.
EG 2011 was organized 11-15 April 2011 by Research Institute for Visual Computing (RIVIC) and hosted and locally organised by Bangor University School of Computer Science. The Vice Chancellor of Bangor University opened the conference.
It attracted three co-located events.
• Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval (April 10, 2011) and
• Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization 2011 (April 10-11, 2011).
• RIVIC Research Institute Visual Computing Colloquium (Monday).
Included a range presentations, of different types of publications, including:
• Full Papers, published in Computer Graphics Forum (CGF) (42)
• Computer Graphics Forum, presentations of previous published journals (16)
• State of the Art reviews (STARs) (7)
• Tutorials (6)
• Short Papers (18)
• Area Papers Heritage (7)
• Area Papers Hight Dynamic Range (HDR) (6)
• Education Papers (6)
• Poster papers (24)
Keynotes were given by
• Kurt Akeley, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research
• Guillaume Thierry, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, Bangor University, Director of
• Frits H. Post, Delft University of Technology, Computer Graphics / Data Visualisation Group
Gave several best papers and awards:
• The first place, i.e. the Gunther Enderle Award went to Josiah Manson and Scott Schaefer, “Wavelet Rasterization”, which presented a robust and elegant solution to the classic problem of anti-aliased rasterization of polygons or fonts bounded by Bezier curves in 2D and meshes in 3D.
• The second place has been given to Stefan Jeschke, David Cline, and Peter Wonka, “Estimating Color and Texture Parameters for Vector Graphics”. This paper introduced an automatic diffusion curve coloring algorithm.
• The third place has been awarded to Romain Vergne, David Vanderhaeghe, Jiazhou Chen, Pascal Barla, Xavier Granier, and Chirstophe Schlick, “Implicit Brushes for Stylized Line-based Rendering”. This paper is about an efficient NPR technique to depict animated 3D scenes with stylized lines maintaining temporal coherence.
An exhibition was held: Exhibitors included: Elsevier, Taylor and Francis, Springer, SENSE Graphics, SIGGRAPH, RIVIC, CAST, Eurographics, Imagination and Kitware.
