What was going on at the EuroVis?

It is now two weeks since Joachim Staib and myself attended the EuroVis 2015 in Cagliari, Italy. I thought it is about time I write about what we did there. Actually, it was a very successful conference for our computer graphics and visualization group from the TU Dresden.

First off, Joachim gave a talk on our work on particle visualization with transparency and ambient occlusion. I write “our work” but he did a wonderful job making this project fly. He really earned the fame to be first author.

    }

Then, I was giving a talk on one of the smaller workshops co-located with the conference. I presented work on visualization of flood simulation data. The focus is realistic rendering for interactive “experiencing” the data. My goal is rightly set by current AAA games. I am ready for the next round.

And, finally, my CGF journal publication on continuous-time parallel coordinates was invited to the conference as well. I already did write about that paper.

    }

So, altogether, I am perfectly happy with the conference. Now, it is just about not getting worse.
