Günter Enderle Best Paper Award

The Günter Enderle Best Paper Award (plus a few runner ups) is the annual award given to the best paper of the annual conference of Eurographics. The committee for this award is normally kept secret, so that short-listed speakers will not realize when several committee members are present at their talk. The chairs for this award committee are nominated extra for every year, and so are the members. Although they really have a hard job, their names are only mentioned at the closing session of the conference. Award chairs since 2004 have been:

2004 Jarek Rossignac
2005 Holly Rushmeier
2006 Roberto Scopigno
2007 Min Chen
2008 Werner Purgathofer
2009 Tom Ertl
2010 Dani Cohen-Or
2011 László Szirmay-Kalos
2012 Oliver Deussen
2013 Joaquim Jorge
2014 Sylvain Lefebvre
2015 Marc Alexa
2016 Michael Wimmer
2017 Pierre Alliez
2018 Tamy Boubekeur
2019 Marco Tarini
2020 Marco Tarini
2021 Eduard Gröller
2024 Gurprit Singh
