Aim of the event

Innovation in cars is increasingly- “driven” by new technology from computer science. Examples are abundant: Autonomous driving, assistance system, in-vehicle entertainment, and many others. Cars equipped with such technology are likely to become the next big thing which will result in changes how cars are produced and used but will also influence our future mobility and thus our society. This disruption in automotive industry creates many opportunities but also challenges. They can best be addressed by bringing together key people who jointly discuss novel ideas from research but in the practical context of industrial applications.

We are pleased to announce the first German Computer Science and Cars Symposium (CSCS). CSCS aims to create bridges between academic research on the one hand and practitioners from the automotive industry on the other. The one day event combines a single track programme with keynote and invited presentations and ample opportunities for discussions and networking. An open call for position papers will present the latest ideas, results, and challenges from academia and industry in poster sessions.


The event includes, but is not limited to the following topics around automotive and Car-IT research and applications:

  • Motion Recognition, Modelling, Synthesis, and Prediction
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning, specifically Deep Learning
  • Computer Graphics and Visualization
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality (AR/VR)
  • HCI (Human Computer Interaction)
  • Communication, Security, Safety, Privacy
  • Advanced Sensing and Intelligent Vehicle Control

Are you ready to embark on your own crossroads of discovery? Join us in Los Angeles, 9-13 August 2015! REGISTER TODAY.

Munich ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter präsentiert Computergrafik-Veteran Paul Debevec

masc_paul_oscarIn Bayern haben sich Gleichgesinnte aus dem Bereich Computergrafik zum Munich ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter zusammengeschlossen. Die Siggraph ist die renommierte Wissenschaftskonferenz der Computergrafik und veranstaltet überall auf der Welt Vorträge.

Am Sonntag, 21. September, präsentiert sich das Munich ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter von 14:30 bis 18 Uhr im Audimax der Hochschule für Fernsehen und Film (HFF) am Bernd-Eichinger-Platz 1, München erstmals dem interessierten Fachpublikum.

Stargast der ersten öffentlichen Veranstaltung des Munich ACM SIGGRAPH Chapters in der bayerischen Landeshauptstadt ist Paul Debevec. Debevec ist ein Veteran der Computergrafik, insbesondere im Bereich HDR Rendering sowie Lighting, und arbeitete unter anderem für Special Effects von Hollywood-Blockbustern wie Spiderman, Superman return und King Kong. Er war auch für die optimale Ausleuchtung in Avatar zuständig. In München spricht er über seine umfangreichen Erfahrungen, referiert zu Advances in Creating Photoreal Digital Actors, gibt einen einmaligen Blick hinter die Kulissen und zeigt inspirierende Ausschnitte aus verschiedenen Filmen.

Die Veranstaltung ist kostenlos, setzt aber eine Anmeldung zum Event auf der Website des Munich ACM SIGGRAPH Chapters voraus.

Eröffnet wird die Veranstaltung von Alain Chesnais, dem ehemaligen Präsidenten der SIGGRAPH sowie Association for Computing Machinery und Mashhuda Glencross, die für die europäischen Chapters zuständig ist. Alain Chesnais spricht über neue Entwicklungen beim 3D Content für das Web.

Mit dabei ist auch Geek’s home, ein von Thomas Harbers gegründetes Museum zum Anfassen und Mitmachen. Das Vorbild ist das Exploratorium, ein Museum in San Francisco, das sich besonders auf die Vermittlung von Naturwissenschaften konzentriert. Den Abschluss bilden aktuelle Filme vom CAF – dem Computer Animation Festival.

Info & Agenda

Das Munich ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt Wissenschaft, Forschung, Kunst, Kultur und Bildung zu fördern. Insbesondere durch die Durchführung von wissenschaftlichen Veranstaltungen im Bereich Computergrafik, interaktiver Technologien und deren Anwendungsgebieten bieten wir einen breiten Zugang zu neuen Erkenntnissen auf diesen Gebieten und Ermöglichen deren Verbreitung.
