Congratulations to this year's winner of the SGP Best Paper awards:
The Eurographics Symposium on Geometry Processing (SGP) is the premier venue for disseminating new research ideas and cutting-edge results in geometry processing. In this research area, concepts from applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering are used to design efficient algorithms for acquisition, reconstruction, manipulation, simulation and transmission of complex 3D models.
In 2012, SGP will be held in Tallinn, Estonia, from July 16 to 18. As in 2011, SGP will offer a graduate school on July 14-15 and a software award (see below).
We invite submissions related to, but not limited to, the following topics in geometry processing:
The SGP proceedings will appear as a regular electronic issue of Computer Graphics Forum, the International Journal of the EUROGRAPHICS Association. The journal status of the proceedings requires a two-stage review process with conditional acceptance after the first round and final acceptance based on the revised submissions.
A poster session will provide an additional informative look into ongoing research. Submissions with high potential but which have not been accepted as papers will be invited to be presented in a poster session during the symposium.
The SGP 2012 best poster award winner is Thierry Guillemot, Telecom ParisTech - Non-Local Point Set Surfaces
There will be a two-day tutorial on geometry processing on July 14-15, specifically targeted towards graduate students. The courses will be taught by leading experts in the field and complemented by hands-on practical exercises to obtain an in-depth knowledge of the most important aspects of digital geometry processing.
To encourage the distribution of useful, high quality software in geometry processing, since 2011 an award is given for freely available software related to or useful for geometry processing. Please send nominations and applications for the software award to firstname.lastname@example.org.
