    Computer Graphics Film Show -- SIGGRAPH Video Review and "Celebration of Mind" Event

    It’s time again to kick off our season of meetings with the annual computer graphics film show, featuring the latest and greatest computer animations direct from the ACM SIGGRAPHconference held this summer. Adam Finkelstein will provide more information about the computer graphics techniques used in these films.

    These films were selected for the juried Computer Animation Festival at the conference, to demonstrate advancements in graphics research, highlight creative visual effects, educate with scientific visualizations, and show the many uses of real-time game rendering engines. These graphics were created by large organizations and individuals, professional animators and students, on high-end supercomputers and ordinary personal computers. Come and enjoy our most popular meeting of each year!

    Adam Finkelstein is a Professor of Computer Science and Associate Chair of the Computer Science Department at Princeton University. Adam is an active member of the Princeton Graphics Group – a group of professors and students doing research in topics such as line drawings, representing 3D images, and shape analysis. In addition, Adam is one of the organizers of the Art of Science (http://artofsci.princeton.edu), a Princeton University exhibition that explores the interplay between art and science.
