  • Real-time Deblocked GPU Rendering of Compressed Volumes 

    Marton, Fabio; Guitián, José A. Iglesias; Díaz, Jose; Gobbetti, Enrico (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    The wide majority of current state-of-the-art compressed GPU volume renderers are based on block-transform coding, which is susceptible to blocking artifacts, particularly at low bit-rates. In this paper we address the ...
  • Efficient Self-Shadowing Using Image-Based Lighting on Glossy Surfaces

    In this paper we present a novel natural illumination approach for real-time rasterization-based rendering with environment map-based high dynamic range lighting. Our approach allows to use all kinds of glossiness values ...
  • Progressive Spectral Ray Differentials 

    Elek, Oskar; Bauszat, Pablo; Ritschel, Tobias; Magnor, Marcus; Seidel, Hans-Peter (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Light travelling though refractive objects can lead to beautiful colourful illumination patterns resulting from dispersion on the object interfaces. While this can be accurately simulated by stochastic Monte-Carlo methods, ...

  • On the Suitability of Connectivity-Extended Local Embedding for Drawing Multivariate Graphs 

    Fahnenschreiber, Sebastian; Laux, Melvin; Landesberger, Tatiana von (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Multivariate networks are present in various domains such as biology, or social science. In such networks, the nodes often have several quantitative attributes, which determine similarity of nodes (e.g., person's characteristics ...
  • Exploring Simulation in Sensor Network Models 

    Steiger, Martin; Hutter, Marco; Schader, Philipp; Kohlhammer, Jörn; Kuijper, Arjan (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Simulation is an important measure to estimate different properties of a planned network such as throughput and cost. However, many parameters need to be adjusted to approximate real-world conditions properly. In this paper ...
  • Hierarchical Brushing of High-Dimensional Data Sets Using Quality Metrics 

    Albuquerque, Georgia; Eisemann, Martin; Löwe, Thomas; Magnor, Marcus (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    In this paper, we present an interactive exploration framework that puts the human-in-the-loop with the application of quality metrics and brushing techniques for an efficient visual analysis of high-dimensional data sets. ...
  • Online Adaptive PCA for Inverse Kinematics Hand Tracking 

    Schröder, Matthias; Botsch, Mario (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Recent approaches to real-time bare hand tracking estimate the hand's pose and posture by fitting a virtual hand model to RGBD sensor data using inverse kinematics. It has been shown that exploiting natural hand synergies ...
  • SOAR: Stochastic Optimization for Affine global point set Registration 

    Agus, Marco; Gobbetti, Enrico; Villanueva, Alberto Jaspe; Mura, Claudio; Pajarola, Renato (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    We introduce a stochastic algorithm for pairwise affine registration of partially overlapping 3D point clouds with unknown point correspondences. The algorithm recovers the globally optimal scale, rotation, and translation ...
  • A Generalized 2D and 3D Multi-Sensor Data Integration Approach based on Signed Distance Functions for Multi-Modal Robotic Mapping 

    May, Stefan; Koch, Philipp; Koch, Rainer; Merkl, Christian; Pfitzner, Christian; Nüchter, Andreas (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    This paper describes a data integration approach for arbitrary 2D/3D depth sensing units exploiting assets of the signed distance function. The underlying framework generalizes the KinectFusion approach with an objectoriented ...
  • High-Speed Object Tracking Using an Asynchronous Temporal Contrast Sensor 

    Saner, Daniel; Wang, Oliver; Heinzle, Simon; Pritch, Yael; Smolic, Aljoscha; Sorkine-Hornung, Alexander; Gross, Markus (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Purely image-based approaches to tracking objects in video sequences are more prone to failure the higher an object's speed, as it covers a greater distance over the camera's exposure time and is subject to increased motion ...
  • Combined Three-Dimensional Visualization of Structural Connectivity and Cortex Parcellation 

    Reichenbach, Andre; Goldau, Mathias; Hlawitschka, Mario (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    The human cortex is organized in spatially distinct regions of different functional units. Cortex parcellations based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of living human subjects are common practice, and recently, structural ...
  • Automated Detection of Anatomical Regions in Magnetic Resonance Images 

    Tóth, Márton J.; Blaskovics, Tamás; Ruskó, László; Delso, Gaspar; Csébfalvi, Balázs (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Recognition of body parts in three-dimensional medical images is an important task in many clinical applications. It can facilitate image segmentation, registration methods and it can be the first step of an automatic ...
  • Real-time Canonical-angle Views in 3D Virtual Cities 

    Kol, Timothy R.; Liao, Jingtang; Eisemann, Elmar (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Virtual city models are useful for navigation planning or the investigation of unknown regions. However, existing rendering systems often fail to provide optimal views during the exploration, introduce occlusions, or show ...
  • Non-local Means for Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy Images and Poisson Noise based on Adaptive Periodic Similarity Search and Patch Regularization
