Welcome to CESCG 2011!

This website contains the proceedings of the 15th Central European Seminar on Computer Graphics, short CESCG, which continues a history of very successful seminars. Again this year, CESCG proceedings have an ISBN (978-3-9502533-3-7) 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 since 2007. Unfortunately, this year another anniversary has to be celebrated outside of the castle in an old mill in Viničné.

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, Werner Purgathofer, and especially 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; and Matej Novotný, Ela Šikudová, Iwka Varhaníková (for Wienislava exhibition), David Běhal, Janka Dadová, Martin Florek, Stanislav Stanek, Roman Ďurikovič, and Ján Lacko 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 13 participating institutions and a very tight time schedule of 20 valuable student works and two invited talks. We welcome groups from Bratislava (UK and STU), Slovakia; Brno and Prague (CTU and KU), Czech Republic; Budapest, Hungary; Bonn, Germany; Graz and Vienna, Austria; Szczecin, Poland; Warwick, United Kingdom; Maribor, Slovenia; and Sarajevo (Univ. and SSST), Bosnia and Herzegovina.

We assembled a large International Program Committee of 16 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 2011 consists of:

The first invited talk "Realistic Rendering of Natural Phenomena" will be held by Tomoyuki Nishita from Department of Complexity Science and Engineering of University of Tokyo, Japan. The second invited talk by Chris Wojtan from Computer Graphics Group of Institute of Science and Technology, Austria, will be about "Deformable Surfaces with Topology Changes for Physics-Based Animation".

The seminar is held under the auspices of the Austrian Ambassador to Slovakia, His Excellency Dr. Josef Marcus Wuketich, and is co-organized with the Spring Conference on Computer Graphics (SCCG), which takes place before 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 2011:

  • OCG, the Austrian Computer Association
  • VRVis, a research center for virtual reality and visualization in Vienna
  • KAUST, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology
  • Qualcomm, wireless telecommunications research and development company
  • Brno University of Technology, Faculty of Information Technology, Department of Computer Graphics and Multimedia
  • Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Graphics Group
  • Graz University of Technology, Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision
  • Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Institute for Applied Geometry
  • The Ministry of Education, of the Slovak Republic
  • Eurographics, the European Association for Computer Graphics
  • SISp, Slovak Society for Computer Science
