  • Visual Supercomputing - Technologies, Applications and Challenges 

    Brodlie, K.; Brooke, J.; Chen, M.; Chisnall, D.; Fewings, A.; Hughes, C.; John, N. W.; Jones, M. W.; Riding, M.; Roard, N. (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    If we were to have a Grid infrastructure for visualization, what technologies would be needed to build such an infrastructure, what kind of applications would benefit from it, and what challenges are we facing in order to ...
  • Acquisition, Synthesis and Rendering of Bidirectional Texture Functions 

    Müller, Gero; Meseth, Jan; Sattler, Mirko; Sarlette, Ralf; Klein, Reinhard (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    One of the main challenges in computer graphics is still the realistic rendering of complex materials such as fabric or skin. The difficulty arises from the complex meso structure and reflectance behavior defining the ...
  • Classification of Illumination Methods for Mixed Reality 

    Jacobs, Katrien; Loscos, Céline (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    A mixed reality (MR) represents an environment composed both by real and virtual objects. MR applications are more and more used, for instance in surgery, architecture, cultural heritage, entertainment, etc. For some of ...
  • Collision Detection for Deformable Objects 

    Teschner, M.; Kimmerle, S.; Heidelberger, B.; Zachmann, G.; Raghupathi, L.; Fuhrmann, A.; Cani, M.-P.; Faure, F.; Magnenat-Thalmann, N.; Strasser, W.; Volino, P. (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Interactive environments for dynamically deforming objects play an important role in surgery simulation and entertainment technology. These environments require fast deformable models and very efficient collision handling ...
  • Perceptually Adaptive Graphics 

    O’Sullivan, Carol; Howlett, Sarah; McDonnell, Rachel; Morvan, Yann; O’Conor, Keith (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    In recent years, the Graphics community has come to realise the importance of taking human perception into account when striving for realism in images, animations and Virtual Environments. In May 2001, a EUROGRAPHICS/ ...
  • Principles and Applications of Medical Virtual Environments 

    Vidal, F. P.; Bello, F.; Brodlie, K.; John, N.W.; Gould, D.; Phillips, R.; Avis, N. J. (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    The medical domain offers many excellent opportunities for the application of computer graphics, visualization, and virtual environments, offering the potential to help improve healthcare and bring benefits to patients. ...
