Area Chairs

Area: Geometry and Modeling
Bruno Levy
Inria Research

Brief Bio
Bruno Levy is a senior researcher with Inria, and the head of the ALICE group (geometry processing and computer fabrication) that he created in 2004 (now 8 faculties). He received the Inria/French Academy of Sciences young researcher award in 2011. He is associate editor for ACM TOG and Graphical Models, and he is a member of the steering committee of SMA/SPM. He was paper co-chair of Eurographics 2014, Pacific raphic 2013, SGP 2010, SPM 2008 and 2007. During the first part of his carreer (2000-2010) he focused on mesh parameterization, texture mapping and conversion between representations (e.g. mesh to S plines). More recently, in the frame of his ERC projects GOODSHAPE and VORPALINE, he worked on sampling (vector quantization) and meshing (isotropic, anisotropic, hex-dominant mesh generation). He currently works on scientific computing and computational physics, developping umerical algorithms for solving partial differential equations (such as Monge-Ampere involved in ptimal transport) and practical geometric algorithms (robust predicates, anisotropic Voronoi diagrams in high dimensions and hexahedral meshing), with applications in fluid dynamics and astrophysics. ...

Area: Rendering
Jaroslav Krivanek
Charles University in Prague
Czech Republic

Brief Bio
Jaroslav is an associate professor of computer science at Charles University, Prague, and a co-founder and the Director of Research of Render Legion, the company behind Corona Renderer. Previously, he was affiliated with Cornell University, Czech Technical University, Prague, and University of Central Florida. Jaroslav received his Ph.D. from INRIA Rennes, France. His primary research interest is in realistic rendering, especially Monte Carlo methods for light transport simulation. His technology was adopted, among other, by Weta Digital, PIXAR, Allegorithmic, and of course Render Legion and Chaos Group. Jaroslav was selected for the New Europe 100 “list of outstanding challengers from Central and Eastern Europe”. ... More >>
