SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Technical Papers
The SIGGRAPH Technical Papers programme is the premier international forum for disseminating important and provocative new work in computer graphics and interactive techniques. SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 will feature 59 accepted papers. These papers span the core areas of modelling, animation, imaging, and rendering, and many papers span multiple categories to explore, for example: using an image to derive geometric information or using images to drive animations. There is also a strong emphasis on use of graphics hardware (GPUs). All the papers will be published in a special issue of ACM Transactions on Graphics.
