Final conference program

Keynote speakers

 Peter SchröderPeter Schröder

Professor of Computer Science and Applied and Computational Mathematics. the California Institute of Technology
     Peter Schröder is Professor of Computer Science and Applied and Computational Mathematics at the California Institute of Technology where he began his academic career in 1995. Prior to Caltech and a short stint as postdoctoral research fellow at Interval Corporation (summer 1995) he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of South Carolina department of mathematics and a lecturer in the computer science department, where he worked with Prof. Björn Jawerth and Dr. Wim Sweldens. He received his PhD in computer science from Princeton University in 1994 for work on "Wavelet Methods for Illumination Computations." Prior to Princeton he was a member of the technical staff at Thinking Machines, where he worked on graphics algorithms for massively parallel computers. In 1990 he received an MS degree from MIT's Media Lab. He did his undergraduate work at the Technical University of Berlin in computer science and pure mathematics. He has also held an appointment as a visiting researcher with the German national computer science research lab (GMD) and its visualization group.
     Prof. Schröder is a world expert in the area of wavelet based methods for computer graphics. He helped pioneer the use of fast wavelet solvers for illumination computations and developed (with Dr. Sweldens) the first practical spherical wavelet transform. Multiresolution techniques have been the subject of many invited lectures and courses he has given in Europe and North America for academic and industrial audiences. His publications record ranges from WIRED magazine to Siggraph conferences and special scientific journal issues on wavelets. In 1995 he was awarded a NSF CAREER award and named a Sloan Fellow. More recently he was named a Packard Fellow and Finalist in the 2001 Discover Awards.

 Christoph Hoffmann

Professor of Computer Science, Purdue University
      Before joining the Purdue faculty, Professor Hoffmann taught at the University of Waterloo, Canada. He has been visiting professor at the Christian-Albrechts University in Kiel, West Germany (1980), and at Cornell University (1984-1986). His research focuses on geometric and solid modeling, its applications to manufacturing and science, and the simulation of physical systems. The research includes, in particular, research on geometric constraint solving, modeling biological structures, robustness in geometric computation, and the semantics of generative, feature-based design. Professor Hoffmann is the author of Group-Theoretic Algorithms and Graph Isomorphism, Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 136, Springer-Verlag and of Geometric and Solid Modeling: An Introduction, published by Morgan Kaufmann, Inc. Professor Hoffmann has received national media attention for his work simulating the 9/11 Pentagon attack.
       Professor Hoffmann serves on the editorial boards of Computer-Aided Geometric Design, Computer Aided Design, ACM Transactions on Graphics, and on the editorial board of Computer-Aided Design and Applications. He is interim co-director of Purdue’s Computing Research Institute and co-director of Purdue’s Product Lifecycle Management Center of Excellence. He has organized numerous national and international workshops and conferences. The author of two monographs, he has published in diverse areas of computer science. His research has received continuous funding since 1978. He is the PI on Purdue’s NSF Envision Center grant.
