  • Single ImageWatermark Retrieval from 3D Printed Surfaces via Convolutional Neural Networks 

    Zhang, Xin; Wang, Qian; Ivrissimtzis, Ioannis (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
    In this paper we propose and analyse a method for watermarking 3D printed objects, concentrating on the watermark retrieval problem. The method embeds the watermark in a planar region of the 3D printed object in the form ...
  • Voronoi Tree Maps with Circular Boundaries 

    Ahmed, Abdalla G. M. (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
    Voronoi tree maps are an important milestone in information visualization, representing a substantial advancement of the original tree maps concept. We address a less-studied variant of Voronoi tree maps that uses ...
  • Segmenting Teeth from Volumetric CT Data with a Hierarchical CNN-based Approach 

    Macho, Philipp Marten; Kurz, Nadja; Ulges, Adrian; Brylka, Robert; Gietzen, Thomas; Schwanecke, Ulrich (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
    This paper addresses the automatic segmentation of teeth in volumetric Computed Tomography (CT) scans of the human skull. Our approach is based on a convolutional neural network employing 3D volumetric convolutions. To ...
  • Image Inpainting for High-Resolution Textures using CNN Texture Synthesis 

    Laube, Pascal; Grunwald, Michael; Franz, Matthias O.; Umlauf, Georg (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
    Deep neural networks have been successfully applied to problems such as image segmentation, image super-resolution, coloration and image inpainting. In this work we propose the use of convolutional neural networks (CNN) ...
  • Towards a Survey of Interactive Visualization for Education 

    Fırat, Elif E.; Laramee, Robert S. (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
