Computers & Graphics

Yeehaw! We can add another journal paper to our publication list!

It has taken a little over a year since our first (hardcopy!) submission. We already got the definitive “accept” on January 3rd, but today I was informed that the article is now available online, together with all publication details and so on. You can find it here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cag.2006.01.032, although for the full text, you will need a valid login.

ASCI Conference 2004

I just returned from Zeeland, where I attended the Tenth Annual Conference of the Advanced School for Computing and Imaging. I had to present a paper there on Thursday.

The conference was held in Port Zélande, a very nice location indeed.
It was an interesting conference with some great invited speakers, such as Rüdiger Westermann and Andy Tanenbaum!

Computer Graphics: Principles and Practice

I am now the proud owner of this book!
A very nice book, hardcover, 1200 pages, and of course a great, if not the reference book for computer graphics.
Charl has got his version signed by Jim Foley himself, the last time he visited our group. Maybe he’ll come back some time to sign mine… 🙂
Anyway, I got the book for a mere £ 39.99, or approx. 57 Euros!
Ok, I had to go to London to pick it up, by I was planning to go there anyway…

Game On

As Charl already wrote, we went to the Game On exhibit in Tilburg, yesterday.

Very nice to see all these old computers, such as the Commodores and Ataris, bringing back fond memories of our own Commodore 16! (BTW, have a look here for more info about these old machines.)

But there was also a PDP-1 with an old vector CRT monitor. “The entire computer occupies only 17 square feet of floor space” (according to the handbook). *GRIN*

They also had a number of arcade machines and of course lots of computer games, starting with Pong (1972!), Space Invaders and Pac-Man, but also Outrun, SimCity and Bomberman, and lots of games I’ve never seen or heard of. I think I’ll be installing MAME too, soon.

All in all, it was very much entertaining, and of course, for us as Computer Graphics “experts”, it should be part of our working knowledge! Hey, maybe we can even reclaim the costs from our employer… 🙂

A new tradition

We heard this morning that our survey paper of Feature-based flow visualisation techniques has been accepted for publication in Computer Graphics Forum, the journal of the Eurographics Association. So that was very good news! And quick too, because we submitted our revised version only last Tuesday.
