"Advances in computer technology and developments such as the Internet provide a constant momentum to design new techniques and algorithms to support computer graphics. Modelling, animation and rendering remain principal topics in the filed of computer graphics and continue to attract researchers around the world."
This volume contains the papers presented at Computer Graphics International 2002, in July, at the University of Bradford, UK. These papers represent original research in computer graphics from around the world and cover areas such as:
- Real-time computer animation
- Image based rendering
- Non photo-realistic rendering
- Virtual reality
- Geometric and solid modelling
- Computational geometry
- Physically based modelling
- Graphics hardware architecture
- Data visualisation
- Data compression
The focus is on the commercial application and industrial use of computer graphics and digital media systems.
Containing the papers presented at Computer Graphics International 2002, this volume covers state-of-the-art research in computer graphics.
