Web3D Best Paper Award for Real-Time Eye Simulation

July 31, 2016

Dr. Dinesh Pai and his team received the Web 3D Best Paper Award for Real-Time Eye Simulation at the 2016 ACM SIGGRAPH Web3D conference in Anaheim, California.

This conference is a major annual event bringing together researchers, entrepreneurs, developers, and more. The theme of this year’s conference was “3D for All”.

The paper, by Debanga R. Neog, Joao L. Cardoso, Anurag Ranjan, and Dr. Dinesh Pai, is titled “Interactive Gaze Driven Animation of the Eye Region.”

Eyes are important to humans because they convey information about an individual’s mental and physical state. Creating realistic animation of eyes is important for life-like realism but has been largely ignored in the field of computer graphics. In their paper, Dr. Pai’s research team presents a system to generate real-time interactive animation of the eyes and the surrounding soft tissues.
