    Dyck, Eugen; Zell, Eduard; Kohsik, Agnes; Grewe, Philip; Winter, York; Piefke, Martina; Botsch, Mario (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    We present the OCTAVIS system, a novel virtual reality platform developed for rehabilitation and training of patients with brain function disorders. To meet the special requirements of clinical studies, our system has been ...
  • Bézier Shell Finite Element for Interactive Surgical Simulation 

    Golembiovský, Tomá¹; Duriez, Christian (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    There is a strong need, in surgical simulations, for physically based deformable model of thin or hollow structures. The use of shell theory allows to have a well-founded formulation resulting from continuum mechanics of ...
  • Efficient Breast Deformation Simulation 

    Harz, Markus T.; Georgii, Joachim; Wang, Lei; Schilling, Kathy; Peitgen, Heinz-Otto (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Breast surgery might benefit from image guidance, if position and extend of the disease could be visualized in the same breast deformation as the surgery is performed. Such visualizations, however, are challenging to obtain, ...
  • Generic Spine Model with Simple Physics for Life-Like Quadrupeds and Reptiles 

    Karim, Ahmad Abdul; Meyer, Alexandre; Gaudin, Thibaut; Buendia, Axel; Bouakaz, Saida (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    We propose a pseudo-physics system and a spine model that can be coupled to generate life-like locomotion animations of quadrupeds and reptiles. The pseudo-physics system uses minimalist particle-based physics and values ...
  • Synthesizing Balancing Character Motions 

    Kenwright, Ben (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    This paper presents a novel method for generating balancing character poses by means of a weighted inverse kinematic constraint algorithm. The weighted constraints enable us to control the order of priority so that more ...
  • Real-Time Motion Synthesis for Multiple Goal-Directed Tasks Using Motion Layers 

    Mousas, Christos; Newbury, Paul (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    In this paper, a work in progress approach of layered motion interpolation method for designing realistic animation sequences for multiple goal-directed tasks is presented. The proposed solution is based on the ability to ...
  • A Packed Memory Array to Keep Moving Particles Sorted 

    Durand, Marie; Raffin, Bruno; Faure, François (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Neighbor identification is the most computationally intensive step in particle based simulations. To contain its cost, a common approach consists in using a regular grid to sort particles according to the cell they belong ...

    Han, Dongsoo; Harada, Takahiro (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Hair can be a prominent feature of characters in real-time games. In this paper, we propose hair simulation with efficient preservation of various hair styles. Bending and twisting effects are crucial to simulate curly or ...
