Recipients of the Award 2015

(2015) Duygu Ceylan In her PhD thesis, Duygu Ceylan pioneered new algorithms for image-based 3D reconstruction and modeling based on symmetry priors. With a focus on urban scenes, Duygu’s work combines high-level data analysis with low-level geometry extraction to significantly improve the accuracy and robustness of multi-view stereo methods.In particular, she solves the fundamental problem of correspondence ambiguity in scenes with high levels of structural repetitions, common in urban facades. Her solution is based on global optimization methods that simultaneously solve for symmetry information and the corresponding 3D reconstruction. This approach not only leads to substantial improvements in reconstruction quality, but also enables a number of high-level editing operations for urban scenes, based on the extracted symmetries. She also explored new methods to design mechanical automata from motion capture data. Duygu Ceylan’s thesis combines novel theoretical insights with efficient algorithms to solve important practical problems. The results of her thesis have been published in top-rated conferences and journals including Eurographics and ACM TOG. -------------------------- Eurographics is pleased to present the Eurographics 2015 PhD Award to Duygu Ceylan for her strong technical contribution to high-level shape analysis, proposing new algorithms for the automatic interpretation of architectural structures.

(2015) Belen Masia In her PhD Thesis, Belen Masia has made significant contributions to the different stages of the imaging pipeline: capture, processing, editing, and visualization. The common denominator in her work has consisted on the combination of novel hardware systems, computational algorithms, and insights from the human visual system. Her works include a new design for coded apertures to recover blurred images, reverse tone mapping operators for high dynamic displays, disparity retargeting algorithms for automultiscopic displays, a metric of visual discomfort for dynamic stereo content, or the first in-depth study about editing workflows for four-dimensional light fields. She was also a co-author of the seminal femtophotography paper that allowed in 2013 to capture light in motion, at a trillion frames per second. Belen's thesis includes impressive advances at the theoretical and practical levels. She has already spent several months collaborating with researchers at prestigious research centers such as the Media Lab in the US, Microsoft Portugal or Tsinghua University in Beijing. Her work is internationally valued and recognized, as her exceptional publication record shows. Moreover, Belen received in 2012 the Nvidia Graduate Fellowship Award, and was chosen in 2014 by MIT Technology Review as one of the top ten innovators under 35 in Spain.
