Welcome to CESCG 2012!

This website contains the proceedings of the 16th Central European Seminar on Computer Graphics, short CESCG, which continues a history of very successful seminars. Again this year, CESCG proceedings have an ISBN (978-3-9502533-4-4) 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, since 2011 the Budmerice castle was 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, 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, David Běhal, Janka Dadová, 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 15 participating institutions and a very tight time schedule of 24 valuable student works and two invited talks. We welcome groups from Bratislava (UK and STU), Slovakia; Brno (VUT and MU) and Prague (CTU), Czech Republic; Budapest, Hungary; Bonn, Germany; Graz and Vienna (TU and VRVis), Austria; Szczecin, Poland; Manchester, United Kingdom; Bergen, Norway; Maribor, Slovenia; and Sarajevo (Univ. and SSST), Bosnia and Herzegovina.

We assembled a large International Program Committee of 21 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 2012 consists of:

The first invited talk "Having Fun With Tables: Research into novel interfaces -- two dimensions and above" will be held by Joaquim A. Jorge from Departamento de Engenharia Informática of Instituto Superior Técnico, Portugal. The second invited talk by Carol O'Sullivan from School of Computer Science and Statistics of Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, will be about "Perceiving Realism in Virtual Worlds".

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 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 2012:

  • VRVis, a research center for virtual reality and visualization in Vienna
  • OCG, the Austrian Computer Association
  • SISp, Slovak Society for Computer Science
  • Sféra, graphical information systems
  • Eurographics, the European Association for Computer Graphics
  • The Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport, of the Slovak Republic
  • PC Revue, a slovak computer magazine
