In the context of a collaboration between LIRIS, CEREMADE (Paris-Dauphine) and Kyoto University, Nicolas Bonneel will present his work on barycentric coordinates for histograms at SIGGRAPH 2016 in Anaheim (CA).
SIGGRAPH is a major annual event in computer graphics, organized by the ACM. This conference benefits from between 10 and 20 000 attendees -- artists, researchers, companies -- and represents every aspect of computer graphics: rendering, photography, 3D printing, animation etc. This year, Nicolas Bonneel has been selected by the AFIG and GDR IGRV to cover this event that will take place in Anaheim in California, from July 24th to 28th, 2016.
The LIRIS organised the sixth international conference on Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA2015 http://liris.cnrs.fr/bica) -- a conference situated at the intersection between artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and neurosciences.
The IW3C2 has accepted the proposal led by Université de Lyon to organize the international Web conference in 2018.
