Distinguished CS Colloquium

Material Appearance Modeling

17 March 2014 | Colloquium

ABSTRACT: The field of computer graphics has seen significant advances in modeling material appearance. In this talk I will review the advances in this area with particular emphasis on applications in biology, industrial design and cultural heritage. I will outline areas where more research is needed including authoring material appearance models, search techniques for materials, and combining appearance and geometric properties of materials. SHORT BIO: Holly Rushmeier is professor and chair of Computer Science at Yale University. She received the BS (1977),MS (1986), and PhD (1988) in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University. Since receiving the PhD she has held positions atGeorgia Tech, NIST and IBM TJ Watson Research. Her area of interest is computer graphics. Her current research focuses onscanning and modeling of shape and appearance properties, and on applications in cultural heritage. Her past projects include aproject to create a digital model of Michelangelo's Florence Pieta and models of Egyptian cultural artifacts in a joint projectbetween IBM and the Government of Egypt. She is coauthor of the text "Digital Modeling of Material Appearance." Dr. Rushmeierhas served as the co-chair of the ACM Publications Board, the Editor-in-Chief of ACM Transactions on Graphics and as paperschair or co-chair for several conferences including the ACM SIGGRAPH conference and IEEE Visualization. She currently serves asco-Editor-in-Chief of Computer Graphics Forum and on several other editorial boards. She is an ACM Distinguished Engineer, aFellow of the Eurographics Association and recipient of the 2013 ACM SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics Achievement Award.
