  • Multimodal Interfaces: an Introduction to ENACTIVE systems 

    Bergamasco, Massimo (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Enactive Interfaces are related to a fundamental "interaction" concept which is not exploited by most of the existing human-computer interface technologies. The traditional interaction with the information mediated by a ...
  • Interaction in Distributed Virtual Environments 

    Glencross, Mashhuda; Otaduy, Miguel; Chalmers, Alan (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    This course will describe the main challenges faced when building engaging shared virtual environments supporting complex behaviour and interaction, and provide discussions on techniques that can be adopted to support some ...
  • High Dynamic Range Techniques in Graphics: from Acquisition to Display 

    Goesele, Michael; Heidrich, Wolfgang; Höfflinger, Bernd; Krawczyk, Grzegorz; Myszkowski, Karol; Trentacoste, Matthew (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    This course is motivated by tremendous progress in the development and accessibility of high dynamic range technology (HDR) that happened just recently, which creates many interesting opportunities and challenges in graphics. ...
  • Simulation of Light Interaction with Human Skin 

    Baranoski, G.V.G.; Krishnaswamy, A. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Despite the notable progress in physically-based rendering, there is still a long way to go before one can automatically generate predictable images of organic materials such as human skin. In this tutorial, the main ...
  • Interactive Shape Modeling 

    Alexa, Marc; Angelidis, Alexis; Cani, Marie-Paule; Singh, Karan; Zorin, Denis (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    The course will present the state-of-the-art in digital modeling techniques, both in commercial software and academic research. The goal of this course is to impart the audience with an understanding of the big open questions ...
  • Illustrative Visualization 

    Viola, Ivan; Gröller, Meister E.; Hadwiger, Markus; Bühler, Katja; Preim, Bernhard; Ebert, David (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    The tutorial presents state-of-the-art visualization techniques inspired by traditional technical and medical illustrations. Such techniques exploit the perception of the human visual system and provide effective visual ...
  • Key Techniques for interactive Virtual Garment Simulation 

    Volino, Pascal; Magnenat-Thalmann, Nadia; Thomaszewski, Bernhard; Wacker, Markus (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Virtual garment design and simulation involves a combination of a large range of techniques, involving mechanical simulation, collision detection, and user interface techniques for creating garments. Here, we perform an ...
  • Collision Handling in Dynamic Simulation Environments 

    Teschner, M.; Heidelberger, B.; Manocha, D.; Govindaraju, N.; Zachmann, G.; Kimmerle, S.; Mezger, J.; Fuhrmann, A. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    This tutorial will discuss collision detection algorithms with a special emphasis on the provided collision information. The potential combination with collision response schemes will be explained which is particular ...
