SIGGRAPH 2007 Papers Program Reveals Innovative Research

(Chicago, IL) - The SIGGRAPH 2007 Papers Program features the year's best research innovations in computer graphics and interactive techniques. Of 455 international submissions, a record-breaking 108 of the world's most prestigious papers will be presented at SIGGRAPH 2007 taking place 5-9 August 2007 in San Diego, California.

Excellence of ideas and expected impact on the field were the primary acceptance criteria. Paper topics include the core areas of modeling, animation, rendering, and imaging, and also touch on related areas such as visualization, computer vision, human-computer interaction, and applications of computer graphics. Countries represented span the globe from Germany to Japan.

"The SIGGRAPH Papers review process, with its unique blend of internal and external reviewers, its long and detailed reviews, and its large face-to-face committee meeting, is recognized as being one of the fairest and most thorough peer review systems in computer science," stated Marc Levoy, SIGGRAPH 2007 Papers Chair from Stanford University.

To promote a lively exchange of ideas during the program, Levoy introduced a system of per-paper discussants. Each paper in the program will be allotted 25 minutes, 20 minutes for presentation and five minutes for discussion of the paper, with the session chair serving as discussant.

Select highlights from the SIGGRAPH 2007 Papers Program:

Image Deblurring With Blurred/Noisy Image Pairs
A novel method to deblur an image, with the help of another noisy image of the same scene. The paper also proposes new methods of de-ringing the deconvoluted image.
