STAG 2017 - Smart Tools and Applications in Graphics

Catania, September 11-12, 2017

The aim of the conference is to focus on smart novel ideas and smart customization of existing modeling and rendering techniques for effective Computer Graphics applications. The goal is also to bring together practitioners, users and researchers, which will hopefully inspire further collaboration between participants particularly between academia and industry.

In particular, we are looking for tricks and Hacks: clever ways to optimize or otherwise improve known techniques or algorithms for real-world applications. Original Techniques and Algorithms: new ways to solve real problems. Methods that offer improvements over ones in common use. Experience/Advice: how to make practical use of known research results. For example, what are the parameter settings that really work? How much precision is needed? How many data points?

Take it off: subtractive fabrication. The geometry processing research community put a lot of effort, in the last years, to study and solve dozens of problems raising linked to the usage of 3D printers. Only recently CNC machiner was thought as another possible tool for producing free-form geometries. We will try to see what can be used for small scale production in a research lab, what has been done and which problems are left open in the field.
