Mathematical Progress in Expressive Image Synthesis (MEIS2014) - Interaction with Industries -

Hold Date 2014-11-12 00:00~2014-11-14 00:00

Place Nishijin Plaza, Kyushu University

IMI Joint Research Projects of the academic year 2014
Symposium MEIS2014:
Mathematical Progress in Expressive Image Synthesis


The international symposium MEIS2014 aims at giving a unique venue where various issues in CG
application fields are discussed by mathematicians, CG researchers and practitioners. Following the great
success of MEIS2013, we try to provoke more lively discussions through the peer-reviewed paper/poster
presentations at the symposium this year.

Several invited talks will also attract and inspire prospective attendees who work in academia or
industries having strong interests on digital media creations, scientific visualization and visual engineering.
