  • Leif Kobbelt for his research contributions to computer graphics and geometry processing; his contributions towards setting up the symposium on geometry processing series and turning it into a leading international event; his chairmanship of several leading international events.
  • Isabel Navazo for her contributions to computer graphics education; contributions to the Eurographics Association and its Spanish Chapter; and her research contributions to computer graphics and geometric modelling.
  • László Szirmay-Kalos for his research contributions to computer graphics, especially in the field of Monte Carlo global illumination; his contributions to Eurographics, including his roles as co-chairman of the IPC in the Eurographics '97 event in Budapest (the first time the conference had been held in Eastern Europe), and the Eurographics 2006 event in Vienna; and the establishment of a strong computer graphics group at the Technical University of Budapest.

New EUROGRAPHICS Fellows


During EUROGRAPHICS 2007 the Fellows of the Association made a proposal to the Executive Committee that new Fellows be elected. The proposal was accepted and the names of the new Fellow were announced at the General Assembly. The new Fellows are George Drettakis and Carol O'Sullivan. The contributions which they have made to computer graphics and to EUROGRAPHICS are outlined below together with the reasons for their nomination. Congratulations to them both!
  • George Drettakis for his excellent research contributions to computer graphics; his chairmanship of Eurographics events and his contributions to the rendering symposium; his standing as a world class graphics researcher.
  • Carol O'Sullivan for her research contributions to computer graphics in perception, virtual humans, crowds, and physically-based animation; her contribution to the development of the Symposium on Computer Animation (SCA); her contribution to the organization of scientific events.

SIGRAD, Swedish Chapter of Eurographics

June 2007. We are pleased to announce that SIGRAD, the special interest group for computer graphics in Sweden has become the latest local chapter of the Eurographics Association. The official name will be "SIGRAD, Swedish Chapter of Eurographics".

Eurographics 2008 - Crete - 14-18 APRIL 2008

Now that the deadline for full papers for Eurographics 2007 has passed it is time to start thinking about writing a full paper for Eurographics 2008.

As announced at the General Assembly in Vienna, the conference is moving to a spring-time slot (February to April period) with paper submission deadline in late September/early October. In making this decision the Executive Committee canvased a wide spectrum of interested parties and concluded that this change would be in the best interests of the research community so that the submission deadlines for Eurographics and ACM SIGGRAPH conferences are now widely separated. This change is for a three year trial period, starting in 2008.

We are delighted to announce that Eurographics 2008 will be held from 14 - 18 APRIL 2008 in Crete. The event is organized by the Foundation for Research and Technology- Hellas (FORTH), one of the largest research organisations in Greece, whose activities span a wide range of areas including molecular biology, biomedical engineering, computer science and robotics. The co-chairs of the event are Panos Trahanias (FORTH Institute of Computer Science), Costantine Stephanidis (FORTH Institute of Computer Science) and Nigel John (University of Wales, Bangor, UK). The IPC Programme Chairs are George Drettakis (INRIA) and Roberto Scopigno (ISTI Pisa).

As well as the conference dates, please note NOW in your diaries the key deadlines for full papers:
  • Deadline for Abstracts: Sept. 21st
  • Paper deadline: Sept 26th
  • Notification of decisions: Nov 19th
The conference web site is under construction at http://www.ics.forth.gr/eg2008 - please monitor this for news of the event, details of the venue and the full composition of the organising committee which will be announced shortly.

New Fellows Elected

Three new fellows were elected at the Executive Committee meeting during Eurographics 2006:

  • David Duke for his contributions to the development of Computer Graphics Forum, to the organisation of scientific events, and his research contributions to computer graphics and visualization through his work on the boundaries of HCI, formal methods, cognitive science and graphics/visualization.
  • Markus Gross for his research contributions at the interface between computer graphics, mathematics and algorithmics; his contribution to raising the quality the EG conference, and raising the profile of European CG research worldwide through his chairmanship of PCs of world-leading conferences; and his contribution to the emergence of point-based graphics as a distinct field within computer graphics, and to the promotion of that through the Eurographics point-based graphics symposium.
  • Roberto Scopigno for his research contributions to computer graphics in multiresolution data modeling, surface reconstruction, 3D data scanning, visualization and rendering; his contribution to the development of Computer Graphics Forum; and his contribution to the organisation of scientific events.
