Congratulations to Ricardo Lopes for successfully defending his PhD thesis with the title “Gameplay Semantics for the adaptive generation of Game Worlds”
Casper van Leeuwen successfully defended his thesis ‘Spatial-temporal pathline clustering based on FTLE fields‘ in our group on the 14th of May.
In his work, Casper worked with cardiac flow acquisition data consisting of 3D blood flow of the heart featuring 4D vector fields. These 4D vector fields of the heart are used in clinical research to gain insight in the flow patterns within the heart which in turn can be used to gain a better understanding of the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases. He implemented a visualization technique called Spatial-temporal Clustering based on Finite Time Lyapunov Exponents, that aims to circumvent the challenges posed by the structural complexity of the flow and give a concise and insightful representation of the blood flow patterns within the heart. Aside from the main visualization technique this works also introduces a novel probing technique that highlights the base principles of the FTLE fields to provide the user with a better understanding of how a FTLE field works.
We would like to congratulate Casper with his achievement and new title and wish him all the best for the future!
At i3D 2014, our paper “Prefiltered Single Scattering” (Oliver Klehm et al.) received two awards.
It was chosen for the JCGT selection and it won the third place presentation award!
The approach allows rendering of participating media at very low cost with high quality, which makes it interesting for many interactive applications!
Yesterday, at the open days for the potential new computer science bachelor students, the CGV group presented several gametech-related student projects. Here are some pictures from the TU Delft Computer Science facebook page:
On Monday, there will be another chance to see these projects and many more at the second day of the open days.
Welcome to the new website of the Computer Graphics and Visualization group! We have migrated from our old MoinMoin wiki-style webpage to this brand new WordPress installation. In addition to this new website, we also have a new group logo that can be seen in the header image above. To celebrate, Ricardo Lopes has composed a video that showcases some of the research that is done in our group with music by Berend Klein Haneveld:
We are very happy to announce the arrival of our group’s new full professor, Prof.dr. Elmar Eisemann. Professor Eisemann joined the group at the beginning of October, and adapted rapidly to the his new environment. He has a strong academic background in graphics, photo-realistic rendering and stereovision rendering, opening up a variety of new possibilities for the CGV Group. Further information about Prof. Dr. Eisemann can be found on his website.
We are looking forward to tackling new challenges as a team under the leadership of Prof.dr. Eisemann!
