      The irradiance cache (IC) is an acceleration data structure which caches indirect diffuse irradiance values within the context of a ray tracing algorithm. In multi-threaded shared memory parallel systems the IC must be ...
    • Wake Synthesis For Shallow Water Equation 

      Pan, Zherong; Huang, Jin; Tong, Yiying; Bao, Hujun (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
      In fluid animation, wake is one of the most important phenomena usually seen when an object is moving relative to the flow. However, in current shallow water simulation for interactive applications, this effect is greatly ...
    • "Walk to here": A Voice Driven Animation System 

      Wang, Zhijin; Panne, Michiel van de (The Eurographics Association, 2006)

    • Walking On Broken Mesh: Defect-Tolerant Geodesic Distances and Parameterizations 

      Campen, Marcel; Kobbelt, Leif (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
      Efficient methods to compute intrinsic distances and geodesic paths have been presented for various types of surface representations, most importantly polygon meshes. These meshes are usually assumed to be well-structured ...
    • Walking Through Virtual Doors: A Study on the Effects of Virtual Location Changes on Memory 

      Watson, Paul; Gaudl, Swen E. (The Eurographics Association, 2021)
      The spaces we inhabit can shape and influence the way in which we learn or reinforce information. Virtual reality (VR) is a technology that allows us to alter and create designed environments with great freedom over the ...
    • Walking with Pens 

      Kolhoff, Philipp; Preuß, Jacqueline; Loviscach, Jörn (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
      Believable 3D animation of walking or running characters still requires complex motion capture technology or extensive skills in manual keyframing. We present an inexpensive, yet natural input method: The user walks on ...
    • Walking, Learning, Enjoying. Mobile Technology on the Trail of Design Masterpieces 

      Spallazzo, Davide; Ceconello, Mauro; Lenz, R. (The Eurographics Association, 2011)
      The paper describes Looking for Achille Castiglioni - LfAC - a mobile location-based application designed to lead visitors to the discovery of Achille Castiglioni's projects in downtown Milan. The renowned architect and ...
    • The Wall of Knowledge 

      Saleh, Fathi; Nabil, Mohammad; Sameer, Nessma (IEEE, 2015)
      The Wall of Knowledge is a new Virtual Museum installation that was developed by CULTNAT (Center for Documentation of Cultural and Natural Heritage) in 2014.
    • Wall Painting Reconstruction Using a Genetic Algorithm 

      Sizikova, Elena; Funkhouser, Thomas (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      Global reconstruction of two-dimensional wall paintings (frescoes) from fragments is an important problem for many archaeological sites. The goal is to find the global position and rotation for each fragment so that all ...
    • Wandering Without Wondering 

      Williams, Peter J.; Wong, Sala (The Eurographics Association, 2019)
