Keynote Speaker I:

Prof.  Holly Rushmeier 

Talk Title:  Perceptually-Based Rendering

Talk Abstract:

From the earliest efforts to rendering realistic images in computer graphics, applications of perceptual insights have been critical for achieving effective results efficiently. The field inherited from the design of displays the use of trichromatic color theory, models of human contrast sensitivity and models of temporal sensitivity to simplify the spectral, spatial and temporal sampling required for rendering. Computer graphics rendering has made progress by further exploiting additional models for isolated effects documented in the human vision literature. This presentation will review these efforts. Future progress however depends on studying and modeling more complex effects such as the perception of textures, the perception of texture in context and temporal variations within a scene. Perceptually based rendering will also need to keep pace with advances in displays that are being designed with new capacity for color fidelity and dynamic range. Developments in augmented reality and in 3D fabrication also present new problems and opportunities. There are many challenges in running the psychophysical experiments needed to obtain the data for models required by improved techniques in perceptually based rendering. Researchers in the field need to consider the role and limitations of crowd sourcing experiments in combination with traditional controlled laboratory experiments.

Prof. Ying He

Talk Title: Harmonic B-splines, Poisson Solver and Poisson Vector Graphics

Talk Abstract:

Abstract: Harmonic B-splines are defined by Green’s functions of the Laplace-Beltrami operator. Like the basis functions of conventional B-splines, they are (approximately) local and non-negative and satisfy partition of unity. Moreover, harmonic B-splines afford progressive update of fully irregular knots, free of degeneracy, without the need of explicit parameterization, making it ideal for a host of many graphics tasks on $R^2$ and 2-manifolds. In this talk, I will first show case several 3D applications of harmonic B-splines, such as data fitting/interpolation and hierarchical decomposition. Then I will introduce a new Poisson solver that supports random-access evaluation. Finally, I will apply the Poisson solver to Poisson vector graphics and demonstrate its potential for authoring and vectorization. This is a joint work with F. Hou, Y. Liu, S. Hu and H. Qin.
