  • Theory and Methods of Light-Field Photography 

    Georgiev, Todor; Lumsdaine, Andrew (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    Computational photography is based on capturing and processing discrete representations of all the light rays in the 3D space. Compared to conventional photography, which captures 2D images, computational photography ...
  • Geometric Modeling Based on Polygonal Meshes 

    Botsch, Mario; Pauly, Mark; Kobbelt, Leif; Alliez, Pierre; Levy, Bruno (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    Polygonal meshes are nowadays intensively used in many different areas of computer graphics and geometry processing. In classical CAGD polygonal meshes developed into a valuable alternative to traditional spline surfaces, ...
  • Interactive Tools for Scientific and Medical Illustration Composition 

    Andrews, Bill; Bruckner, Stefan; Chen, Wei; Correa, Carlos D.; Ebert, David S.; Sousa, Mario Costa; Viola, Ivan (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    The area of illustrative visualization is concerned with developing methods to enhance the depiction of scientific data based on principles founded in traditional illustration. The illustration community has century-long ...
  • Advanced Material Appearance Models 

    Dorsey, Julie; Rushmeier, Holly; Sillion, Francois (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    This tutorial will cover the foundational elements of advanced material appearance models. For many years appearance models in computer graphics focused on general models for reflectance functions coupled with texture maps. ...
  • Interactive Introduction to X3D Graphics 

    Anslow, Craig; Brutzman, Don (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    Extensible 3D (X3D) graphics is a collection of open-standards that define a system that integrates network-enabled 3D graphics and multimedia. X3D applications are real-time, interactive, animated systems that can run ...
  • Perceptually-Motivated Graphics 

    Mania, Katerina; Reinhard, Erik (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    In this half-day tutorial, we give an overview of the uses of knowledge about the human visual system, as applied to several aspects of computer graphics. In particular, we show how human visual perception applies to the ...
