Program Schedule: Sunday, 17 November – Wednesday, 20 November
Quote from C. Karen Liu, SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 Technical Papers Chair:
“This year's program was selected from the collective work of 1398 authors from 36 different countries! We received 309 submissions of very high quality, making the selection task a particularly difficult one.
I am in awe of the depth and breadth of technological breakthrough in the SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 proceedings. This year’s program features papers that propel the field forward rapidly and vibrantly, while keeping us well-grounded academically, ensuring that SIGGRAPH Asia remains a breeding ground for significant new areas of research. In sync with the global phenomenon of machine learning and artificial intelligence proliferation, we continue to see an overwhelming number of papers in all subfields of graphics employed and contribute to AI science in general.
SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 Technical Papers Program Highlights
A Multi-Scale Model for Coupling Strands with Shear-Dependent Liquid
Authors: Yun (Raymond) Fei, Columbia University, USA
Christopher Batty, University of Waterloo, Canada
Eitan Grinspun and Changxi Zheng, Columbia University, USA
Description: We propose a framework for simulating the complex dynamics of strands interacting with compressible, shear-dependent liquids, such as oil paint, mud, cream, melted chocolate, and pasta sauce.
The Relightables: Volumetric Performance Capture of Humans with Realistic Relighting
Authors: Kaiwen Guo, Peter Lincoln, Philip Davidson, Jay Busch, Xueming Yu, Matt Whalen, Geoff Harvey, Sergio Orts-Escolano, Rohit Pandey, Jason Dourgarian, Danhang Tang, Anastasia Tkach, Adarsh Kowdle, Emily Cooper, Mingsong Dou, Sean Fanello, Graham Fyffe, Christoph Rhemann, Jonathan Taylor, Paul Debevec, and Shahram Izadi, Google Inc.
Description: We present “The Relightables”, a volumetric capture system for photorealistic and high quality relightable full-body performance capture.
A Differential Theory of Radiative Transfer
Authors: Cheng Zhang, University of California, Irvine
Lifan Wu, University of California, San Diego
Changxi Zheng, Columbia University
Ioannis Gkioulekas, Carnegie Mellon University
Ravi Ramamoorthi, University of California, San Diego
Shuang Zhao, University of California, Irvine
Description: We introduce a differential theory of radiative transfer, which shows how individual components of the radiative transfer equation can be differentiated with respect to arbitrary differentiable changes of a scene.
Taichi: A Language for High-Performance Computation on Spatially Sparse Data Structures
Authors: Yuanming Hu, MIT CSAIL
Tzu-Mao Li, MIT CSAIL and UC Berkeley
Luke Anderson, MIT CSAIL
Jonathan Ragan-Kelley, UC Berkeley
Frédo Durand, MIT CSAIL
Description: We propose Taichi, a new data-oriented programming language for efficiently authoring, accessing, and maintaining 3D visual computing data structures.
