    History

    The GraVisMa conferences have roots in the WSCG conferences (http://www.wscg.eu) held since 1992 in Plzen, Czech Republic every year, with special sessions oriented to Computer Graphics, Visualization and Computer Vision and Applied Mathematics.

    Due to the growing demand in interdisciplinary aspects of Computer Graphics, Visualization and Computer Vision with Mathematics (applied and pure, it was decided to initiate GraVisMa conferences as independent conferences. Recently held conferences were in 2009 in Plzen and 2010 in Brno, Czech Republic.

    GraVisMa conferences mission

    • GraVisMa events are a unique forum of researchers, practitioners, developers and academia experts to discuss new approaches and methods in Computer Graphics, Computer Vision, Scientific Computation, Medical, Scientific and Information Visualization (and relevant fields) with application of the latest developments in Mathematics and Physics and vice versa. 
    • Goals of the GraVisMa are to bring Projective Geometry, Geometric Algebra and Conformal Geometry to practice, especially in the fields related to Computer Graphics and Vision, Scientific Computation and Visualization.
    • GraVisMa brings new impulses to related fields of computer science, especially in development of new approaches and algorithms and will stimulate research activities between mathematicians and computer science experts.

    Informal atmosphere of the GraVisMa stimulates scientific discussions between researchers and practitioners, which will lead to further research international collaborations and project proposals as well.

    Workshops and Special sessions

    Meshless Methods in Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics

    Organizer: Prof. Vaclav Skala, http://www.VaclavSkala.eu, Head of the Center of Computer Graphics and Visualization, http://graphics.zcu.cz/, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Faculty of Applied Sciences, University of West Bohemia, Plzen [Pilsen], Czech Republic

    E-mail: Submission to: skala@kiv.zcu.cz subject: GraVisMa 2016

    Standard computational methods across many application fields require tessellation in 2D or 3D using triangular or tetrahedral meshes. Tessellation itself is computationally expensive especially in higher dimensions and result of computation is again discrete and physical phenomena are not smoothly interpolated. Meshless methods are scalable for higher dimensions and offer smooth final representation. Meshless methods lead to a solution of system of linear equations, in general. The applicability of meshless methods can be found in several areas. 
    The workshop is intended to exploration of theoretical foundations and applicability of meshless methods,

    Main topics (but not limited to):

    • Meshless methods in computer graphics, vizualization and computer vision
    • Meshless methods in engineering problems
    • Meshless methods - theory and practice
    • Meshless interpolation and approximation of large data sets
    • Radial Basis Functions (RBF) in computer graphics, visualization, image processing and computer vision
    • Meshless methods and projective space
