2013 SIGGRAPH Announces Technical Papers
The 2013 SIGGRAPH Technical Papers program is the premier international forum for disseminating new scholarly work on computer graphics and interactive techniques. Receiving papers from around the world, selected papers were chosen by a distinguished committee of academia and industry experts.
Some notable items include:
- AIREAL: Interactive Tactile Experiences in Free Air. This paper by a team from University of Illinois and Disney Research. AIREAL is a tactile feedback device that delivers effective and expressive tactile sensations in free air, without requiring the user to wear a physical device. Combined with interactive graphics applications, AIREAL enables users to feel virtual objects, experience free-air textures and receive haptic feedback with free-space gestures.
- Opacity Optimization for 3D Line Fields. This paper by a team from Otto-von-Guericke Universitat, Magdeburg. This paper focuses on visualizing dense line fields, this method selects lines by view-dependent opacity optimizations and applies them to real-time free navigation in flow data, medical imaging, physics and computer graphics.
