      Paolini, P.; Barbieri, T.; Loiudice, P.; Alonzo, F.; Arru, M.; Zanti, M.; Gaia, G. (Eurographics Association, 1999)
      The notion of cooperative visit and interaction within a web site, both at 2D and 3D level, could add decisive motivation to pursue exploitation of the third dimension in networked environments. A prototype developed at ...
    • A Weighted Delaunay Triangulation Framework for Merging Triangulations in a Connectivity Oblivious Fashion 

      Silva, Luis F.; Scheidegger, Luiz F.; Etiene, Tiago; Comba, João L. D.; Nonato, Luis G.; Silva, Cláudio T. (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2014)
      Simplicial meshes are useful as discrete approximations of continuous spaces in numerical simulations. In some applications, however, meshes need to be modified over time. Mesh update operations are often expensive and ...
    • A Weighted Error Metric and Optimization Method for Antialiasing Patterns 

      Laine, S.; Aila, T. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2006)
      Displaying a synthetic image on a computer display requires determining the colors of individual pixels. To avoid aliasing, multiple samples of the image can be taken per pixel, after which the color of a pixel may be ...
    • Weighted Multipass Methods for Global Illumination 

      Suykens, Frank; Willems, Yves D. (Blackwell Publishers Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1999)
      In multipass rendering, care has to be taken to include all light transport only once in the final solution. Therefore the different methods in current multipass configurations handle a perfectly disjunct part of the light ...
    • Welcome to EUROGRAPHICS 87

    • The West Digital Conservatory of Archaeological Heritage project 

      Barreau, Jean-Baptiste; Gaugne, Ronan; Bernard, Yann; Cloirec, Gaétan Le; Gouranton, Valérie (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
      The West Digital Conservatory of Archaeological Heritage project, a.k.a. WDCAH, is a new French research organization whose aim is to both ensure the preservation of digital archaeological data, and deliver expertise in ...
    • Wetting Effects in Hair Simulation 

      Rungjiratananon, Witawat; Kanamori, Yoshihiro; Nishita, Tomoyuki (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
      There is considerable recent progress in hair simulations, driven by the high demands in computer animated movies. However, capturing the complex interactions between hair and water is still relatively in its infancy. Such ...
    • WG2 - The ISO Working Group on Computer Graphics 

      Unknown author (Blackwell Publishing Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1984)
    • What Auto Completion Tells Us About Sketch Recognition 

      Altiok, Ozan Can; Yesilbek, Kemal Tugrul; Sezgin, Tevfik Metin (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      Auto completion is generally considered to be a difficult problem in sketch recognition as it requires a decision to be made with fewer strokes. Therefore, it is generally assumed that the classification of fully completed ...
    • What can Computer Graphics expect from 3D Computer Vision? 

      Sara, Radim (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2007)
      Computer Vision is a discipline whose ultimate goal is to interpret optical images of real scenes. It is well understood that such a problem is cursed by ambiguity of interpretation and uncertainty of evidence. Despite ...
    • What Can We Gain from Transdisciplinary Visualization Courses? 

      Chalmers, Panel Chair: Gitta Domik; Panellists: Alan; Domik, Gitta; Fellner, Dieter W.; Rushmeier, Holly (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
      Transdisciplinary education means going even further in the collaboration with other disciplines than multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary education do. Transdisciplinary education attempts to search for new insights ...
    • What communication for museums? Experiences and reflections within the project for the Museo Egizio in Turin 

      Gabellone, Francesco; Ferrari, Ivan; Giuri, Francesco; Chiffi, Maria (IEEE, 2015)
      The Egyptian Museum in Turin project aims at being a communicative concept which, through the use of technologies for three-dimensional restitution, reconstruction and computer animation, can accelerate and enhance the ...
    • What does water look like? 

      Kryven, Marta; Cowan, William (ACM, 2014)
      What makes images of water look like water? We conducted four psychophysical experiments to isolate perceptual qualities that make water easy to recognize. Water recognition is facilitated by colour and by three patterns ...
    • What if we use the "What if" Approach for Eco-Feedback? Designing an Electricity Consumption Analysis for Layman Users 

      Wambecke, Jérémy; Bonneau, Georges-Pierre; Blanch, Renaud; Vergne, Romain (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
      Many households share the objective of reducing electricity consumption for either economic or ecological motivations. Ecofeedback technologies support this objective by providing users with a visualization of their ...
    • What is the Reddening Effect and does it really exist? 

      Clausen, Olaf; Marroquim, Ricardo; Fuhrmann, Arnulph; Weigand, Holger (The Eurographics Association, 2019)
