Presentation Transcript

  1. Computer Graphics & Visualization • Roger Crawfis • Tamal Dey • Raghu Machiraju • Rick Parent • Han-Wei Shen • Yusu Wang • Rafe Wenger

  2. Core Areas • Visualization • Geometric Algorithms & Modeling • Animation • Rendering • User Interaction

  3. Areas of Leadership • Visualization • Geometric Algorithms & Modeling • Animation

  4. Strengths • Visibility (Strong publications, Editorial boards, PCs, Keynotes) • Ranking (top 5 in Viz., top 10 in Geometry, top 15 in Animation) • Strong funding (several NSF, 6 Career, DoE, ARO, NIH) • ~$1 M/Yr. in the last three years, $154K/faculty. • Student placements (many in good universities, industry, Natl Labs, Newsletter lists many of them) • ~30 current Phd students. Graduating rate ~0.8/faculty/Yr. • Collaborations (Bio, Medical, Stanford, Harvard, HKUST, INRIA, ACCAD, OSC, LLNL, Wright state, NASA) • Well recognized software distribution (Cocone, Mesh generation) • Visualization 2008 Conference in Columbus

  5. Leadership in: Visualization Edited Books: Microscopic Image Analysis for Life Science Applications Awards: 7 NSF, 4 Career awards, 1 NIH, 1 DOE Program committees : Visualization, Volume Graphics, Graphics Interface, EuroVis, Pacific Graphics,  Pacific Vis, Eurographics Parallel Graphics  Editorial Boards: IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics  Conference/Paper Chair: VisWeek08, Visualization 2008, Volume Graphics Impact: 2008 DoD SBIR/STTR topic based on work by Machiraju and collaborators. DOE Ultrascale Visualization Institute (one of 4 schools in the country) Students:  IBM Research Labs, Samsung, LLNL, Harvard Medical School, Oak Ridge, Nvidia, Siemens Medical, Vital Images, Faculty at Univ. of Tennessee, SUNY Stony Brook, Simon Frasier, Keynote: AFI/TFI (100 year celebration of Tokohu University Japan) 

  6. Leadership in: Geometry • Publications : SoCG, SODA, DCG, SIAM, JACM • Book (Cambridge U. Press) • 6 NSF, 1 ARO, 2 Career, 1 NIH • Well known software (Cocone, Mesh generation) • Executive Board of SMA • PC membership: SoCG, SODA, ACM-SPM, SMI, IMR, 3DPVT, Pacific graphics, ISAAC, FST&TCS • Editorial board membership: DCG, Trans. Comput. Sci. • Keynote, Colloquia : ALGO02, ISAAC06,UFL, UND, WUSTL,Penn-State • Success of students: Faculty, Post-docs at Stanford, UT-Austin.

  7. Leadership in: Animation • Founder (1 of 7) of Symposium on CA • Published Successful Book on CA • Several publications in SIGGRAPH • Program committee membership: CASA, SCA, SIBGRAPI, PG, Technical Sketch chair • Editorial board membership: TVCG, VC • Success of students: academy awards, faculty at Purdue, Toronto, George Washington, professionals at Pixar, PDI, D2, etc. • Keynotes: CASA, SIBGRAPI

  8. Transformations of areas • Geometric Algorithms & Modeling • Application focus • Visualization • collaborations • Animation • Closer ties with ACCAD

  9. ObjectivesBe more attractive to top-notch students, Attract more resources • Got a plan => Hire a new faculty in graphics, • In the last nine years, area had only 1 hire How? Increase national visibility in Graphics Publish more, obtain more grants Increase service
