His current computer science research projects involve realistic image generation, parallel-processing algorithms for rendering, new graphical user interfaces, and computer animation. His current application projects include ornithology and the search for the ivory-billed woodpecker, medical imaging and virtual surgery, architectural design for a green environment, and new types of computer displays, from electronic paper to touch-sensitive table displays.
Speaking on the topic of "The Expanding Boundaries of Computer Graphics", Prof. Greenberg will challenge the new generation of computer graphicists - those who will take great professional risks to solve big problems - to dream impossible dreams and extend the influence of computer graphics to many other disciplines.
Prof. Greenberg has also been accorded several awards in the course of his work; some of which include: the ACM SIGGRAPH Steven A. Coons Award for Outstanding Creative Contributions to Computer Graphics in 1987 and the NCGA Academic Award (the highest educational award given by the National Computer Graphics Association) in 1989.
Prof. Greenberg is currently the Director for the Programme of Computer Graphics at Cornell University. Many of his graduate students have gone on to become leaders in the fields of computer graphics, computer animation, and computer-aided design for architecture. Six former students have won Hollywood's Technical "Oscars", and five have won the prestigious SIGGRAPH Achievement Award.
Sketches & Posters -
Submission closes on 12 July!
Sketches & Posters provide
dynamic forums for new and thought-provoking ideas, techniques, and
applications in computer graphics and interactive techniques. This
programme covers a broad spectrum of topics including digital art,
design, science, and engineering. It encompasses ideas ranging from
speculation to academic research, from industrial development and
practical tools to behind-the-scenes explanations of commercial and
artistic work. We encourage submissions from artists, animators,
developers, and researchers from academia and industry, as well as
independent work. Students are particularly welcome.
