Elmar Eisemann

Associate Professor at Telecom ParisTech

Elmar Eisemann is an associate professor at Telecom ParisTech. Before, he was a senior scientist heading a research group in the Cluster of Excellence (Saarland University / MPI Informatik) until December 2009. He studied Mathematics (Cologne) and Computer Science (Ecole Normale Superieure Paris). He obtained a Master's (2004) and PhD. degree (2008) in Mathematics / Computer Science from Grenoble Universities. He worked at MIT (2003), UIUC (2006), and Adobe (Seattle - 2007, Boston - 2008). His interests include real-time and perceptual rendering, alternative representations, shadow algorithms, global illumination, and GPU acceleration techniques. He published several articles at various conferences, book chapters, and journal papers. He was local organizer of EGSR 2010 and received the Eurographics Young Researcher Award in 2011.


Michael Schwarz

Michael Schwarz received a Diploma in 2005 and a Ph.D. in 2009 from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. His graphics-related research interests include real-time computer graphics, GPU techniques, global illumination, procedural modeling, scalable approaches, and perception-aware graphics.

Ulf Assarsson

Associate Professor at Chalmers University of Technology
