Welcome to CESCG 2015!
This website contains the proceedings of the 19th Central European Seminar on
Computer Graphics, short CESCG, which continues a history of very successful
seminars. Again this year, CESCG proceedings have an ISBN (978-3-9502533-7-5) 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 was
back in Budmerice castle in 2007. Unfortunately, since 2011 the Budmerice castle is not available for scientific activities. After spending the one year in Viničné, in 2012 we moved to the beautiful castle in Smolenice.
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: Michael Wimmer, Anita Mayerhofer, Katharina Krösl, and Werner Purgathofer. Special thanks goes to Martin Ilčík for taking care of
the complete reviewing process and scientific program preparation. We are very thankful to the CESCG organizers
from Bratislava, mainly Andrej Ferko, always an inspiration to CESCG;
Ela Šikudová, and Michal Ferko 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.
We mainly focus on sustainable academic and research development in the field of Computer Graphics in Visegrad Countries and Austria. Our mission is to
support undergraduate talents in their future careers. Therefore, we are proud to state that we have achieved again a very high number of 19 participating institutions and a very tight time schedule of 21 valuable student works, 3 specialized interactive workshops, a discussion panel and two invited talks. We welcome groups from Bratislava (UK and STU), Slovakia; Brno (VUT and
MU) and Prague (CTU), Czech Republic; Budapest (BME), Hungary; Bonn, Germany;
Graz and Vienna (TU and VRVis), Austria; Szczecin, Poland; Maribor, Slovenia; and Sarajevo (UnSa), Bosnia and Herzegovina.
We assembled an International Program Committee of 13 members,
allowing us to have each paper reviewed by three 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 2015 consists of:
The reviewing process was further supported by: Thomas Auzinger, Zuzana Berger Haladová, Michael Birsak, Pedro Boechat, Peter Borovský, Pavel Chalmovianský, Daniel Cornel, Roman Durikovič, Pavol Fabo, Michal Ferko, Michael Hecher, Michael Kenzel, Christian Luksch, Przemyslaw Musialski, Stefan Ohrhallinger, Reinhold Preiner, Mohamed Radwan, Elena Šikudová, Stanislav Stanek, Bernhard Steiner, Ivana Uhlíková, Ivana Varhaníková, and Károly Zsolnai.

The first invited talk "Computational Challenges in Designing Virtual Models for Fabrication" will be held by Bernd Bickel from the Institute of Science and Technology, Austria. The second invited talk by Tamas Varady from the Department of Control Engineering and Information Technology of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary, will be about "Challenges in Digital Shape Reconstruction". The workshop "What makes a great talk?" will be held by Károly Zsolnai. Martin Ilčík will guide the students in the second workshop called "The Hero’s Journey in Science".
The seminar is co-organized with the Spring Conference on Computer Graphics (SCCG), which takes place right after. For the first time we created an overlapping day with a joint program. On Wednesday morning a panel on "Computer Graphics Education in Visegrad Countries" will be hosted by Dr. Michael Wimmer. In the afternoon, four CESCG papers which managed to be promoted to the SCCG will be presented:
- Marek Galvánek:
- Automated Facial Landmark Detection, Comparison and Visualization
- Márton Vaitkus:
- A General Framework for Constrained Mesh Parameterization
- Gergely Rácz:
- Tomographic Reconstruction on the Body-Centered Cubic Lattice
- Martin Sattlecker:
- Reyes Rendering on the GPU
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 2015:
- International Visegrad Fund, http://visegradfund.org
- NVidia, The Way It's Meant to Be Played
- VRVis, Research Center for Virtual Reality and Visualization
- OCG, The Austrian Computer Association
- SISp, Slovak Society for Computer Science
- Eurographics, The European Association for Computer Graphics
