Preface

Welcome to CESCG 2006!

This year is a very special year for CESCG not only does it offer a wonderful program of scientific talks, it is also the tenth seminar in a long tradition of successful seminars! A fair enough reason to celebrate and to look back to ten years of CESCG.

Evolved from bilateral seminars between Bratislava and Vienna, CESCG 1997 was the first international student seminar with participants from Bratislava, Brno, Budapest, Graz, Prague, and Vienna. In 1998, CESCG was first held in the beautiful castle of Budmerice. Year by year, the seminar was improved. Up to 2006, more than 20 groups from more than 10 different European countries participated in CESCG by sending their best students to the seminar. Over ten years, CESCG has established itself as a special target for talented students in the fields of graphics and vision, and many of those who actively participated in CESCG are now recognized researchers or practitioners. We are looking forward to upcoming CESCG events with new highlights and new delight.

Who are the CESCG heroes who made this years seminar happen? In no particular order because many people were involved equally we would like to thank the organizers from Vienna, especially Georg Rothwangl, who helped in the preparation of the 10 years of CESCG celebrations; Andreas Traxler for all kinds of jobs, not least of them keeping the web page up to date; Stefan Jeschke for the reviewing process organization; and Georg Zotti and Ivan Viola for the CD production. We are very thankful to the CESCG organizers from Bratislava, namely Milan Ftáčnik, the head of the Local Organizing Committee; Andrej Ferko, always an inspiration to CESCG; and Stanislav Stanek and Matej Novotný for the excellent on-site organization.

The main idea of CESCG is to bring students of computer graphics together across boundaries of universities and countries. Therefore we are proud to state that we have achieved again a very high number of 16 participating institutions and a very tight time schedule of 23 valuable student works and two invited talks. We are also proud that for the first time, students from University of Košice, Slovakia, joined the seminar. We also welcome groups from Bratislava, Slovakia (UK and STU); Brno, Plzeň and Prague, Czech Republic; Budapest and Szeged, Hungary; Bonn, Germany; Graz, Hagenberg and Vienna (TU and VRVis), Austria; Szczecin, Poland; Bristol, United Kingdom; and Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In honor of ten years of CESCG, we assembled a record International Program Committee of 13 members. Therefore, the informal reviewing process was even more thorough than in previous years, as each paper was reviewed by two IPC members. We would like to thank the members of the IPC for their contribution to the reviewing process. The IPC of CESCG 2006 consists of:

Alan ChalmersLászló Szirmay-Kalos
Andrej FerkoMartin Šperka
Markus GrabnerMichael Wimmer
Helwig HauserPavel Zemcík
Reinhard KleinBorut Žalik
Ivana KolingerováJiří Žára
Radoslaw Mantiuk

Invited talks this year are held by Dieter Schmalstieg from the Graz University of Technology, Austria, about Challenges and Opportunities of Handheld Augmented Reality, and Václav Hlaváč from the Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic, about Pattern Recognition-Based Hints to Computer Graphics Folks. The seminar features an exhibition Animations of Computer Graphics organized by Peter Borovský. The seminar is held under the auspices of the Austrian Ambassador to Slovakia, his Excellency Martin Bolldorf, and is co-organized with the Spring Conference on Computer Graphics (SCCG), which takes place right before the seminar.

The organization of a seminar where there are de facto no expenses for the students requires funding. We are very thankful to the sponsors of CESCG 2006:

  • SOFTIP, a Slovak information technology provider - our main sponsor;
  • ATI, one of the two major producers of graphics hardware.
  • Caligari Corporation, 3D modeling and rendering software;
  • Cytotrade, an offshore software development company;
  • Red Bull, producer of a popular softdrink and support of youthful events;
  • Eurographics, the European Association for Computer Graphics;
  • VITE, an organisation that supports IT-enterprises in the Vienna region;
  • VRVis, a research center for virtual reality and visualization in Vienna;
  • OCG, the Austrian Computer Association;
  • the Ministry of Education of the Slovak Republic;

Finally, not all good things last forever, and this year we have to take leave of the wonderful Castle Budmerice due to a change of owners. Therefore, CESCG 2006 takes place in Častá-Papiernička Centre, which is a special facility of the Office of the National Council of the Slovak Republic, located about 40 km from Bratislava, surrounded by the forests of Little Carpatians.
