    Hildenbrand, Dietmar; Perwass, Christian; Dorst, Leo; Fontijne, Daniel (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    In this tutorial we will give an overview of Geometric Algebra and its application to computer graphics. First of all, we want to motivate the topic and give insights into some applications.
  • Simulation of Clothes for Real-time Applications 

    Magnenat-Thalmann, N.; Cordier, F.; Keckeisen, M.; Kimmerle, S.; Klein, R.; Meseth, J. (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    This presentation gives an overview of the whole tutorial. It introduces the different techniques that will be presented in the next sessions. An overview of previous work is given as well.
  • Collision Detection for Deformable Objects 

    Teschner, M.; Kimmerle, S.; Heidelberger, B.; Zachmann, G.; Raghupathi, L.; Fuhrmann, A.; Cani, M.-P.; Faure, F.; Magnenat-Thalmann, N.; Strasser, W.; Volino, P. (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Interactive environments for dynamically deforming objects play an important role in surgery simulation and entertainment technology. These environments require fast deformable models and very efficient collision handling ...
  • Perceptually Adaptive Graphics 

    O’Sullivan, Carol; Howlett, Sarah; McDonnell, Rachel; Morvan, Yann; O’Conor, Keith (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    In recent years, the Graphics community has come to realise the importance of taking human perception into account when striving for realism in images, animations and Virtual Environments. In May 2001, a EUROGRAPHICS/ ...
  • Visual Supercomputing - Technologies, Applications and Challenges 

    Brodlie, K.; Brooke, J.; Chen, M.; Chisnall, D.; Fewings, A.; Hughes, C.; John, N. W.; Jones, M. W.; Riding, M.; Roard, N. (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    If we were to have a Grid infrastructure for visualization, what technologies would be needed to build such an infrastructure, what kind of applications would benefit from it, and what challenges are we facing in order to ...
  • Acquisition, Synthesis and Rendering of Bidirectional Texture Functions 

    Müller, Gero; Meseth, Jan; Sattler, Mirko; Sarlette, Ralf; Klein, Reinhard (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    One of the main challenges in computer graphics is still the realistic rendering of complex materials such as fabric or skin. The difficulty arises from the complex meso structure and reflectance behavior defining the ...
  • Classification of Illumination Methods for Mixed Reality 

    Jacobs, Katrien; Loscos, Céline (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    A mixed reality (MR) represents an environment composed both by real and virtual objects. MR applications are more and more used, for instance in surgery, architecture, cultural heritage, entertainment, etc. For some of ...
  • Principles and Applications of Medical Virtual Environments 

    Vidal, Franck; Bello, F.; Brodlie, K.; John, N.W.; Gould, D.; Phillips, R.; Avis, N. J. (Eurographics Association, 2004)

  • A Real Time Light Probe 

    Unger, Jonas; Gustavson, Stefan; Ollila, M.; Johannesson, M. (Eurographics Association, 2004)
    We present a novel system capable of capturing high dynamic range (HDR) Light Probes at video speed. Each Light Probe frame is built from an individual full set of exposures, all of which are captured within the frame time. ...
  • Virtual Clay for Direct Hand Manipulation 

    Dewaele, Guillaume; Cani, Marie-Paule (Eurographics Association, 2004)
