The 23rd Pacific Conference on Computer Graphics and Applications (Pacific Graphics 2015) will be hosted by Tsinghua University and held in Beijing, China, during October 7-9, 2015. Pacific Graphics is an annual international conference on computer graphics and applications. As a highly successful conference series, Pacific Graphics provides a premium forum for researchers, developers, practitioners in the Pacific Rim and around the world to present and discuss new problems, solutions, and technologies in computer graphics and related areas.

For Authors

Paper Submission

Original unpublished papers are invited in all areas of computer graphics and its applications. The topics include (but are not limited to) modeling, rendering, animation, and imaging, as well as visualization, human-computer interaction, and graphics systems and applications. Any interesting new ideas related to computer graphics and applications are welcome.

Paper Publication

The conference will have a full paper track as well as a short paper track. The full papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will appear as a special issue of the Computer Graphics Forum (CGF). Short papers will not appear in the CGF, but will be published electronically through the EG Digital Library.

Papers submitted to Pacific Graphics 2015 must be original, unpublished work. Any work that has previously been published or simultaneously been submitted in a substantially similar form to any other conference or journal will be rejected. Contributions must be written and presented in English. Authors may submit to either the full paper or short paper track. Authors can also specify if they would be willing to have their full paper submission considered for short paper in the event the paper is not accepted. Full papers submission are limited to a maximum of 10 pages. Short papers are limited to a maximum of 4 pages. The review process will be double blind. Please remove all personal data (e.g. names, affiliation, etc.) from your submission.

Keynote Speakers

Speaker Peter Wonka

Professor of Computer Science at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and Arizona State University

Title Computational Design of Urban Layouts

A fundamental challenge in computational design is to compute layouts by arranging a set of shapes. In this talk I will present recent urban modeling projects with applications in computer graphics, urban planning, and architecture. The talk will look at different scales of urban modeling (streets, floorplans, parcels). A common challenge in all these modeling problems are functional and aesthetic constraints that should be respected. The talk also highlights interesting links to geometry processing problems, such as field design and quad meshing.

Speaker Nobuyuki Umetani

Research Scientist at Autodesk Research

Title Simulation-guided Interactive Exploration of Functional Design

Physical simulation allows validation of geometric designs without tedious physical prototyping. However, since geometric modeling and physical simulation are typically separated, simulations are mainly used for rejecting bad design, and not for assisting creative exploration towards better designs. In this talk, I introduce several interactive approaches to integrate physical simulation into geometric modeling to actively support creative design process. Importance of interactivity in the design system will be discussed in various practical contexts including structurally robust design, musical instrument design, garment design, and aerodynamics design.

Speaker Kun Zhou

Cheung Kong Professor and Director of the State Key Lab of CAD&CG at Zhejiang University

Title Digital Avatars for All: Interactive Face and Hairs

Although realistic face/hair modeling and animation technologies have been widely employed in computer generated movies, it remains challenging to deploy them in consumer-level applications such as computer games, social networks and other interactive applications. The main difficulties come from the requirement of special equipment, sensitivity to daily environments, laborious manual work and high computational costs. In this talk, I will introduce our recent work on realistic face/hair modeling and animation, targeting at interactive applications and ordinary users. In particular, I will describe fully automatic approaches to real-time facial tracking and animation with a single web camera, methods for modeling hairs from images, and real-time algorithms for realistic hair simulation.
