    • The SIGGRAPH Asia 2017 Posters program received a total of 111 completed submissions from all over the world.
    • 58 submissions were accepted by the committee.
    • The SIGGRAPH Asia 2017 Posters program is a premier international forum for presenting what-if ideas, new techniques, and new ways of using existing methods, over a wide range of areas relevant to computer graphics. This includes animation, hardware, imaging and video, interaction, modeling, multimedia, rendering, virtual environments, visualization, methods and applications.
    • Leading international experts in academia and industry from around the world present the best results that are peer-reviewed.
    • Accepted posters will be documented in the SIGGRAPH Asia 2017 website and in the ACM Digital Library.

    Quote from Hui Huang, SIGGRAPH Asia 2017 Posters Co-Chair:

    “The SIGGRAPH Asia 2017 Posters Program aims to encourage faculties, researchers, students, animators, developers, educators, engineers and the media, to communicate and exchange innovative and fresh ideas in a highly concise and eye-catching fashion, that will build a bridge between the academia and industry.”


    SIGGRAPH Asia 2017 Posters Program Highlights

    • Title: SmartSweep: Context-aware Modeling on a Single Image
      Author(s): Yilan Chen, Wenlong Meng, Shiqing Xin, Hongbo Fu
      Organization, Country: City University of Hong Kong and Ningbo University, China
      Description: SmartSweep is an image-based tool to facilitate creating complementary parts for existing physical objects. The key idea is to detect and utilize the contextual features to augment modeling.
    • Title: Silk Fabricator: Using Silkworms as 3D Printers
      Author(s): Riku Iwasaki, Yuta Sato, Suzuki Ippei, Youichi Ochiai, Atushi Shinodo, Kenta Yamamoto, Kohei Ogawa
      Organization, Country: University of Tsukuba and Digital Nature Group, Japan
      Description: This work proposes new methods of computational fabrication by utilizing living silk worms as fabrication tools towards building free-form 3D sheets of silk.
    • Title: Counterpoint: A Design Space Exploration of Interleaved Microgestures
      Author(s): Barrett Ens, Aaron Quigley, Hui-Shyong Yeo, Pourang Irani, Thammathip Piumsomboon, Mark Billinghurst
      Organization, Country: University of South Australia, Australia and University of St. Andrews, UK and University of Manitoba, Canada
      Description: Counterpoint is a design space exploration of microgestures interleaved with other gesture types from a greater gesture taxonomy.
    • Title: Improvement of A Finger-Mounted Haptic Device Using Surface Contact
      Author(s): Makoto Yoda, Hiroki Imamura
      Organization, Country: Soka University, Japan
      Description: This work proposes a novel finger-mounted haptic device using a plane interface. A plane interface provides a force feedback by being approximated to tangent plane on a CG object surface.
    • Title: User Interface Application in Desktop VR using a Mirror Metaphor
      Author(s): Santawat Thanyadit, Ting-Chuen Pong
      Organization, Country: Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, China
