The goal of the meeting is to encourage exchange of ideas between researchers and practitioners in the fields of computer graphics and computer vision from across the Czech and Slovak Republics and beyond. There will be many (optional) outdoor activities possible during the day and fruitful talks, discussions and socializing in the afternoons and evenings.

The expected price is around 140 EUR per person (3 nights, 3x half board). Please let us know if you are interested to attend the event (please provide also your talk proposal, deadline: November 12, 2017).

Invited Speakers:

Speaker 1: Matthias Hullin, University of Bonn, Germany

Matthias Hullin

Matthias Hullin is a professor of Digital Material Appearance at the University of Bonn, a post he took after research stages at the Max Planck Center for Visual Computing and Communication and the University of British Columbia. He obtained a doctorate in computer science from Saarland University (2010) with a dissertation that was awarded the Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society, and a Diplom in physics from the University of Kaiserslautern (2007). His research is focused on the interface between computer graphics and the physics of light.






Speaker 2: Niloy J. Mitra, UCL, London, UK

Niloy Mitra

Niloy Mitra is a professor of Geometry Processing, UCL Department of Computer Science. Niloy's research primarily centers around algorithmic issues in shape analysis and geometry processing. He is also interested in applying the analysis findings (e.g., relations, constraints, etc.) towards next generation design tools including smart shape synthesis and fabrication-aware functional model design.
