May 10th - 12th, 2010, Budmerice Castle, Slovakia

Up to December, we received a large number of announcements of participation in reply to the Call for Participation of CESCG 2010. Thus, we are proud to publish the preliminary program of CESCG 2010.

Unfortunately, we were not able to accomodate all requested slots, but we have tried to make a fair selection. Please have a look at the list of talks below and send us as soon as possible the information still missing in the table (names, talk titles).

To prepare the successful preparation of printed proceedings and web proceedings for the seminar, we want to remind the participants about how to proceed in preparing their contributions. The detailed timetable can be found in the Call for Participation. Please note that this year there were again some changes to the LaTEX template, as well as new instructions for providing images, so please review them carefully!

A Note to Participants

Participants are required to upload a zipped version of their submission (including possible supplementary material like additional images, movies, ..., for reviewing) via our submission web page by February 22, 2010, 23:59 CET at the latest. Note that also this year we do not require an anonymous version. The material will then be distributed for reviewing. Reviews will be sent to the authors by March 19, 2010. Final submissions must be uploaded by April 11, 2010, 23:59 CET at the latest. Submissions which are uploaded after this deadline cannot be published in the printed version of CESCG 2010 proceedings. As the HTML version of the proceedings will be prepared in parallel with their printed version, the HTML files have to be here by the same deadline as well.

Please read the upload instructions which are available at our submission web page carefully, such that we have no problems to include all the contributions in the proceedings. Please recall that only those contributions are included in any form of seminar proceedings that conform to the "Guidelines for Authors" as specified at! Please note that the templates have been updated for this year. Please use the latest version.

Please also make sure that all participants of CESCG 2010, esp. the speakers and supervisors, do register as early as possible via the registration page!

Preliminary Seminar Schedule

The seminar schedule is again divided into three days. We have two invited talks sessions, six paper sessions, coffee breaks and lunch and again very popular social programs. See the details in the following time table:

Invited Talks

The organizers of CESCG 2010 are proud to announce the invited talks to be held at the seminar:

Invited Speaker Title and Abstract
Solving Vision Tasks with Variational Methods on GPUs

This talk will present novel solutions to long standing computer vision problems by means of variational methods. We present robust methods for optical flow calculation, the correspondence problem for stereo matching, depth map integration and interactive segmentation methods. The variety of topics that can be handled by these methods demonstrate the wide applicability of variational methods.
In addition, modern graphics hardware (GPUs) allow to compute solutions to these problems very efficiently and in some cases (e.g. optical flow) even in real-time. Having real-time solutions opens several new applications areas (e.g. industrial imaging), interactive medical segmentation, etc. Some of these will be presented during the talk.

Simulating the Dynamics of Fluids

The thin film fluids can interact in the air while forming clustered structures, everybody likes to see them in the bubble show. Animation of soap bubble dynamics, formation of clusters can be handled by the dynamic surfaces colliding each other. How to animate bubbles within the fluid? We can think even about more challenging task of air bubbles within the fluid mixture. The dynamics surfaces will not help us much in this case. Fortunately, mathematical community have payed attention to the fluid dynamics and validated the model of Navier-Stokes differential equations as governing model of fluid dynamics. Unfortunately, those equations can be solved by nontrivial numerical methods. Precise numerical methods can be hardly solved in real time. Fluid dynamics governed by Navier-Stokes equations have been solved for decades but the recent trend in computer graphics is to modify the simulation to gain better controllability, in computer animation or real time fluid animation.

Again time this year, there will be also a special industry session held by our sponsor Autodesk:

Keynote SpeakerTitle and Abstract

Autodesk Education Continuum - Interactive Curricula Model for Technical Excellence and Creativity

This presentation describes a proposal for an Autodesk Curriculum Model (ACM) that spans an Education Continuum from Secondary, Career and Technical to Higher Education. The ACM is built on an Interactive Learning Platform to engage a contemporary student audience in a learning environment focused on visual and audio communication and offers pedagogical theory combining Technical Competencies in Autodesk Software and Creative Designing Strategies.

The ACM content combines rigorous engineering theory with creative designing strategies to offer faculty and students a new pedagogical approach aligning functionality and imagination as integral elements of an exciting and engaging strategy for learning.
