IMI Joint Research Projects of the academic year 2015:
Symposium MEIS2015
Mathematical Progress in Expressive Image Synthesis


The international symposium MEIS2015 aims at giving a unique venue where various issues in CG application fields are discussed by mathematicians, CG researchers and practitioners. Through the previous conferences, MEIS2013 and MEIS2014, mathematicians as well as CG researchers have recognized that CG is a specific and practical activity derived from mathematical theories. Issues found in CG broaden the field of mathematics (and vice versa), and CG visualizes mathematical theories in an aesthetic way. In this year, we try to provoke interdisciplinary research projects through the peer-reviewed paper/poster presentations at the symposium.

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.
