CGI 2014 Summary

The CGI'14 Sydney organisation team would like to thank all the delegates who has made CGI'14 a big success! The scientific quality of the talks were very well received by the audience and we heard inspiring talks from our keynote speakers. Special thanks goes to the Program chairs and the 100 International Program Committee (IPC) members as the Reviewers and the external sub-reviewers invited by the IPC. This conference was possible through the many support from the Computer Graphics Society (CGS) and the University of Sydney as the primary sponsor. Some notes about the conference:

  • Over 100 Delegates from 20 countries
  • 4 Distinguished Keynote speakers
  • 135 submission from over 30 countries
  • 35 papers accepted (26%) as Special Issue paper
  • Further 8 as Full papers
  • Additional 18 Short papers

  • We also had a Special Session on 'Multi-scale Biological Modalities for Physiological Human Articulations' and a Workshop on 'Computer Graphics in Biomedical and Biological Imaging Data' to complement the CGI conference. Several Invited Speakers gave exciting talks.

    At the conference, we celebrated a CGI Career Award, in recognition and appreciation of the recipient's devoted time and effort to computer graphics and contributions to the CGI conferences, were awarded to:

    Prof. Franz-Erich Wolter
    Head Institute of Man-Machine-Communication Dean of Studies in Computer Science

    At the conclusion of the conference, best paper awards were presented, to recognise the quality of the research and also the presentation. Each session chair was tasked with nominating the best paper which were then analysed together with the paper review score (from the external Reviewers) by the award committee. In CGI'14 Sydney, the best paper went to:

    Liuyang Zhou, Zhiwu Lu, Howard Leung and Lifeng Shang
    City University of Hong Kong, Renmin University of China and Noah's Ark Lab, Huawei
    Spatial Temporal Pyramid Matching Using Temporal Sparse Representation for Human Motion Retrieval

    Two equal 2nd best paper were further awarded to:

    Eugene Taranta and Sumanta Pattanaik
    University of Central Florida
    Macro 64-Regions for Uniform Grids on GPU

    Horacio E. Fortunato and Manuel M. Oliveira
