Welcome to CGI 2014

Thank you to all participants of CGI'14 for contributing to the tremendous success of the meeting. A short summary of the CGI'14 is available here. Selected photo gallery is available to view here and full list of CGI'14 photos will be available from Flickr. Thank you again to all participants and see you at CGI'15 in Strasbourg, France.

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
Leibniz University of Hannover
Research Affiliate of MIT

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
High-Quality Fast non-Blind Deconvolution Using Sparse Adaptive Priors

Congratulations to all the winners and we look forward to meeting you again in future CGS conferences!

Computer Graphics International (CGI) is one of the oldest annual international conferences on computer graphics. It is organized by the Computer Graphics Society (CGS). Researchers across the whole world are invited to share their experiences and novel achievements in various fields - like computer graphics and human-computer interaction. Former conferences have been held recently in Ottawa, Canada, Bournemouth, England and Hannover, Germany.

The 31st CGI will be hosted at beautiful city of Sydney on June 10-13, 2014. Sydney is known for its harbour lifestyle, fantastic beaches and good weather - all contributing to a relaxed environment that permeates the city and its visitors.

35 peer-reviewed accepted papers will be published as full-length (10 pages max.) in the Springer The Visual Computer Special issue and will be presented orally at the conference. Some papers (max 15) will be accepted as short papers and appear in a digital conference proceedings together with the full papers. Poster session will be held during the conference and will allow plenty of opportunities for one-on-one dialogue and small group discussion in a casual setting. Posters will also appear in a digital key together with the full/short papers.

"CGI: 30 years of key research in Computer Graphics" created by Prof. Daniel Thalmann (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore EPFL, Switzerland) is available to view online from here.
