  • Generalized Model-Based Human Motion Recognition with Body Partition Index Maps 

    Deng, Liqun; Leung, Howard; Gu, Naijie; Yang, Yang (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Content-based human motion analysis has captured extensive concerns of researchers from the domains of computer animation, human-machine interaction, entertainment, etc. However, it is a non-trivial task due to the spatial ...
  • Event report: 2011 Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization 

    Kuhlen, Torsten (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
  • The State of the Art in Interactive Global Illumination 

    Ritschel, Tobias; Dachsbacher, Carsten; Grosch, Thorsten; Kautz, Jan (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    The interaction of light and matter in the world surrounding us is of striking complexity and beauty. Since the very beginning of computer graphics, adequate modelling of these processes and efficient computation is an ...
  • Spatio-Temporal Filtering of Indirect Lighting for Interactive Global Illumination 

    Chen, Ying-Chieh; Lei, Su Ian Eugene; Chang, Chun-Fa (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    We introduce a screen‐space statistical filtering method for real‐time rendering with global illumination. It is inspired by statistical filtering proposed by Meyer et al. to reduce the noise in global illumination over a ...
  • Shiny Vase, Translucent Candle and Metallic Sculpture 

    Bousseau, Adrien; Chapoulie, Emmanuelle; Ramamoorthi, Ravi; Agrawala, Maneesh (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
  • Lazy Visibility Evaluation for Exact Soft Shadows 

    Mora, F.; Aveneau, L.; Apostu, O.; Ghazanfarpour, D. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    This paper presents a novel approach to compute high quality and noise‐free soft shadows using exact visibility computations. This work relies on a theoretical framework allowing to group lines according to the geometry ...
  • Acoustic Rendering and Auditory–Visual Cross-Modal Perception and Interaction 

    Hulusic, Vedad; Harvey, Carlo; Debattista, Kurt; Tsingos, Nicolas; Walker, Steve; Howard, David; Chalmers, Alan (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    In recent years research in the three-dimensional sound generation field has been primarily focussed upon new applications of spatialized sound. In the computer graphics community the use of such techniques is most commonly ...
  • Exploring Different Parameters to Assess Left Ventricle Global and Regional Functional Analysis from Coronary CT Angiography 

    Silva, Samuel; Santos, Beatriz Sousa; Madeira, Joaquim (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Coronary CT angiography is widely used in clinical practice for the assessment of coronary artery disease. Several studies have shown that the same exam can also be used to assess left ventricle (LV) function. Even though ...
  • Efficient Image-Based Proximity Queries with Object-Space Precision 

    Morvan, T.; Reimers, M.; Samset, E. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    We present an efficient algorithm for object-space proximity queries between multiple deformable triangular meshes. Our approach uses the rasterization capabilities of the GPU to produce an image-space representation of ...
  • TreeMatrix: A Hybrid Visualization of Compound Graphs 

    Rufiange, Sébastien; McGuffin, Michael J.; Fuhrman, Christopher P. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    We present a hybrid visualization technique for compound graphs (i.e. networks with a hierarchical clustering defined on the nodes) that combines the use of adjacency matrices, node-link and arc diagrams to show the graph, ...
  • Interactive Ray Tracing of Large Models Using Voxel Hierarchies 

    Áfra, Attila T. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    We propose an efficient approach for interactive visualization of massive models with CPU ray tracing. A voxel-based hierarchical level-of-detail (LOD) framework is employed to minimize rendering time and required system ...
  • Description and Solution of an Unreported Intrinsic Bias in Photon Mapping Density Estimation with Constant Kernel 

    García, R.; Ureña, C.; Sbert, M. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    This paper presents an analysis of the irradiance estimator often used in photon mapping algorithms and concludes that the classical approach with a constant kernel overestimates the correct value. We propose a new estimator ...
  • A Low-Memory, Straightforward and Fast Bilateral Filter Through Subsampling in Spatial Domain 

    Banterle, Francesco; Corsini, Massimiliano; Cignoni, Paolo; Scopigno, Roberto (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    In this work we present a new algorithm for accelerating the colour bilateral filter based on a subsampling strategy working in the spatial domain. The base idea is to use a suitable subset of samples of the entire kernel ...
  • Beyond Catmull–Clark? A Survey of Advances in Subdivision Surface Methods 

    Cashman, Thomas J. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Subdivision surfaces allow smooth free‐form surface modelling without topological constraints. They have become a fundamental representation for smooth geometry, particularly in the animation and entertainment industries. ...
  • Efficient Depth of Field Rasterization Using a Tile Test Based on Half-Space Culling 

    Akenine-Möller, Tomas; Toth, Robert; Munkberg, Jacob; Hasselgren, Jon (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    For depth of field (DOF) rasterization, it is often desired to have an efficient tile versus triangle test, which can conservatively compute which samples on the lens that need to execute the sample-in-triangle test. We ...
