Welcome to CESCG 2010!
This website contains the proceedings of the 14th Central European Seminar on
Computer Graphics, short CESCG, which continues a history of very successful
seminars. Again this year, CESCG proceedings have an ISBN (978-3-9502533-2-0) and will therefore
remain retrievable as long as there are libraries!
The long history of CESCG has started in 1997 in a medium-sized lecture room
in Bratislava, bringing together students from Bratislava, Brno, Budapest, Graz,
Prague, and Vienna. The idea found wide appraisal and the seminar moved to the
beautiful castle of Budmerice, where it was held for 8 consecutive years, constantly
growing in size and attraction. It was just in the 10th anniversary year 2006 that
CESCG had to take a detour to move to Častá-Papiernička Centre, while it is
back in Budmerice castle since 2007!
Who are the CESCG heroes who made this year's seminar happen? In no
particular order -- because many people were involved equally -- we would like to
thank the organizers from Vienna, especially Oliver Mattausch for taking care of
the complete reviewing process. We are very thankful to the CESCG organizers
from Bratislava, mainly Andrej Ferko, always an inspiration to CESCG; and
Stanislav Stanek, Matej Novotný, Ela Šikudová, Zdenka Slobodová, Martin Samuelčík and Pavla Ňuňuková for the excellent preparations and 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 welcome groups from Bratislava, Slovakia; Brno (BUT and
MU), Prague (CTU and KU) and Ostrava, Czech Republic; Budapest, Hungary; Bonn, Germany;
Graz and Vienna (TU and VRVis), Austria; Szczecin, Poland; Warwick,
United Kingdom; Maribor, Slovenia; and Sarajevo (Univ. and SST), Bosnia
We assembled a large International Program Committee of 18 members,
allowing us to have each paper reviewed by two IPC members during the informal
reviewing process. We would like to thank the members of the IPC for their
contribution to the reviewing process. The IPC of CESCG 2010 consists of:
|Borut Žalik||Jozef Pelikán|
|Jiří Bittner||Selma Rizvic|
|Alan Chalmers||Jiří Sochor|
|Andrej Ferko||Martin Sperka|
|Jasminka Hasic||Marc Streit|
|Reinhard Klein||László Szirmay-Kalos|
|Ivana Kolingerová||Ania Tomaszewska|
|Radoslaw Mantiuk||Michael Wimmer|
|Stephan Mantler||Pavel Zemčík|
Again this year, there will be a special keynote talk held by our sponsor Autodesk: Stephen Stott will talk about "Autodesk Education Continuum - Interactive Curricula Model for Technical Excellence and Creativity". The first invited talk "Solving Vision Tasks with Variational Methods on GPUs" will be held by Horst Bischof from Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision of Graz University of Technology, Austria. The second invited talk by Roman Durikovič from Faculty of Mathematics, Physics, and Informatics of Comenius University, Slovakia, will be about "Simulating the Dynamics of Fluids".
The seminar is held under
the auspices of the Austrian Ambassador to Slovakia, His Excellency Dr. Helmut Wessely, and is co-organized with the Spring Conference on Computer Graphics
(SCCG), which takes place right after the seminar.
The organization of a seminar where there are only low expenses for the
students requires funding. We are very thankful to the sponsors of CESCG 2010:
- Autodesk, a world leader in 2D and 3D design software
- OCG, the Austrian Computer Association
- The Ministry of Education, of the Slovak Republic
- Eurographics, the European Association for Computer Graphics
- VRVis, a research center for virtual reality and visualization in Vienna
- PC Revue, a slovak computer magazine
- SIS, Slovak Society for Computer Science
- Sfera, graphical information systems
- EEA, communication solutions
- CSA Systems, Construction System Assiciates
