    • Multi-Modal Perception for Selective Rendering 

      Harvey, Carlo; Debattista, Kurt; Bashford-Rogers, Thomas; Chalmers, Alan (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      A major challenge in generating high‐fidelity virtual environments (VEs) is to be able to provide realism at interactive rates. The high‐fidelity simulation of light and sound is still unachievable in real time as such ...

      One of the most accurate yet still practical representation of material appearance is the Bidirectional Texture Function (BTF). The BTF can be viewed as an extension of Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) ...
    • Visualization and Quantification for Interactive Analysis of Neural Connectivity in Drosophila 

      Swoboda, N.; Moosburner, J.; Bruckner, S.; Yu, J. Y.; Dickson, B. J.; Bühler, K. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      Neurobiologists investigate the brain of the common fruit fly to discover neural circuits and link them to complex behaviour. Formulating new hypotheses about connectivity requires potential connectivity information between ...
    • Synthesizing Ornamental Typefaces 

      Zhang, Junsong; Wang, Yu; Xiao, Weiyi; Luo, Zhenshan (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      We present a method for creating ornamental typeface images. Ornamental typefaces are a composite artwork made from the assemblage of images that carry similar semantics to words. These appealing word‐art works often attract ...
    • Inversion Fractals and Iteration Processes in the Generation of Aesthetic Patterns 

      Gdawiec, K. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      In this paper, we generalize the idea of star‐shaped set inversion fractals using iterations known from fixed point theory. We also extend the iterations from real parameters to so‐called ‐system numbers and proposed the ...
    • Accurate and Efficient Computation of Laplacian Spectral Distances and Kernels 

      Patané, Giuseppe (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      This paper introduces the Laplacian spectral distances, as a function that resembles the usual distance map, but exhibits properties (e.g. smoothness, locality, invariance to shape transformations) that make them useful ...
    • Discovering Structured Variations Via Template Matching 

      Ceylan, Duygu; Dang, Minh; Mitra, Niloy J.; Neubert, Boris; Pauly, Mark (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      Understanding patterns of variation from raw measurement data remains a central goal of shape analysis. Such an understanding reveals which elements are repeated, or how elements can be derived as structured variations ...
    • Output-Sensitive Filtering of Streaming Volume Data 

      Solteszova, Veronika; Birkeland, Åsmund; Stoppel, Sergej; Viola, Ivan; Bruckner, Stefan (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      Real‐time volume data acquisition poses substantial challenges for the traditional visualization pipeline where data enhancement is typically seen as a pre‐processing step. In the case of 4D ultrasound data, for instance, ...
    • Constructive Visual Analytics for Text Similarity Detection 

      Abdul-Rahman, A.; Roe, G.; Olsen, M.; Gladstone, C.; Whaling, R.; Cronk, N.; Morrissey, R.; Chen, M. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      Detecting similarity between texts is a frequently encountered text mining task. Because the measurement of similarity is typically composed of a number of metrics, and some measures are sensitive to subjective interpretation, ...
    • Consistent Partial Matching of Shape Collections via Sparse Modeling 

      Cosmo, L.; Rodolà, E.; Albarelli, A.; Mémoli, F.; Cremers, D. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      Recent efforts in the area of joint object matching approach the problem by taking as input a set of pairwise maps, which are then jointly optimized across the whole collection so that certain accuracy and consistency ...
    • Synthesis of Human Skin Pigmentation Disorders 

      Barros, R. S.; Walter, M. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      Changes in the human pigmentary system can lead to imbalances in the distribution of melanin in the skin resulting in artefacts known as pigmented lesions. Our work takes as departing point biological data regarding human ...
    • Towards Globally Optimal Normal Orientations for Large Point Clouds 

      Schertler, Nico; Savchynskyy, Bogdan; Gumhold, Stefan (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      Various processing algorithms on point set surfaces rely on consistently oriented normals (e.g. Poisson surface reconstruction). While several approaches exist for the calculation of normal directions, in most cases, their ...
    • Partial Functional Correspondence 

      Rodolà, E.; Cosmo, L.; Bronstein, M. M.; Torsello, A.; Cremers, D. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      In this paper, we propose a method for computing partial functional correspondence between non‐rigid shapes. We use perturbation analysis to show how removal of shape parts changes the Laplace–Beltrami eigenfunctions, and ...
    • Constrained Convex Space Partition for Ray Tracing in Architectural Environments 

      Maria, M.; Horna, S.; Aveneau, L. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      This paper explores constrained convex space partition (CCSP) as a new acceleration structure for ray tracing. A CCSP is a graph, representing a space partition made up of empty convex volumes. The scene geometry is located ...
