PhD student Xiang Fang received the best graphics poster award at Graphics Interface 2019, the 45th International Conference on Graphics, Visualization and Human-computer Interaction.
Xiang’s poster, titled “Parametric Interpolation Scheme Based on Boundary Blending,” explored a scattered data problem in graphics — specifically, if given a triangular mesh of vertices, how do you construct a smooth surface to interpolate the vertices and interpolate the first order derivatives. The method described in this poster generalizes earlier C1 blending techniques, with Xiang’s generalization allowing for arbitrary continuity.
Held this year at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario from May 29 to 31, 2019, Graphics Interface is an annual international conference devoted to computer graphics and human-computer interaction. It is the longest running conference in the field and it consistently attracts high-quality presentations from researchers working in graphics, human-computer interaction and visualization.
