korea university   -   Seoul, October 14-17, 2019

The 27th International Conference on Computer Graphics and Applications (Pacific Graphics 2019) was held at Korea University, Seoul, Korea, on October 14-17, 2019. Pacific Graphics is a flagship conference of the Asia Graphics Association. Pacific Graphics provides a premium forum for researchers, developers, and practitioners in the Pacific Rim and around the world to present and discuss new problems, solutions, and technologies in computer graphics and related areas.

This year Pacific Graphics received 222 submissions, which were reviewed by a Program Committee of 108 international experts and 154 external reviewers. Each submission underwent a rigorous review process. The Program Co-Chairs assigned each paper to a primary reviewer and a secondary reviewer selected from the Program Committee. The primary invited external reviewers so that each paper received at least three reviews. The decision of the first review cycle was made after the authors’ rebuttal and extensive discussions among the reviewers. Each of the accepted full papers underwent a second review cycle to ensure that the necessary revisions indicated in the reviews were carried out.

Out of 222 submissions, 74 full papers (acceptance rate: 33.3%) and 9 short papers were selected for oral presentation at the conference. 69 of the full papers are published in the special issue of Computer Graphics Forum and 5 of them will be published in the regular issue of Computer Graphics Forum after major revision. All the accepted full and short papers are published electronically through the EG Digital Library and presented in a two-track format at the conference. The conference program also includes presentations of four recent articles from regular issues of IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics and another four articles from regular issues of Computer Graphics Forum. They are presented together with regular papers. The conference also features three keynote speeches by Markus Gross, Alla Sheffer, and Masahiko Inami.

The work-in-progress and poster sessions are an integral part of the conference program, which provides an opportunity for authors to display late-breaking technical achievements that are not yet ready for publication or added on previous publication. While conference attendees receive the abstracts and supplemental material for the work-in-progress and poster program, this material does not appear in any archival libraries since work-in-progress and posters are not formal publications.

We wish to thank the members of the international program committee and the external reviewers for doing thorough reviews despite short review and discussion periods. We are also very grateful to Stefanie Behnke for her help with the submission and review management system, Michael Wimmer for providing the paper sorting script, and Hwangpil Park for his help with conference scheduling and administration. Finally, we would like to thank the authors for their support of this venue and congratulate them for the high quality of the papers compiled into the proceedings.

For Authors

Paper Submission

Original unpublished papers are invited in all areas of computer graphics and its applications. The topics include (but are not limited to) modeling, rendering, animation, and imaging, as well as visualization, human-computer interaction, and graphics systems and applications. Any interesting new ideas related to computer graphics and applications are welcome.

Paper Publication

The conference proceedings of Pacific Graphics 2019 will be published as an issue of the Eurographics journal, Computer Graphics Forum (CGF), in print and online. Regular (full) papers will be presented in oral sessions and appear in the journal issue. A few submissions with strong potentials but not accepted as regular papers will be recommended for a second review cycle of CGF after major revisions. Short papers will be accepted but will be published electronically through the EG digital library. Extended versions of selected, high-quality, short papers will be invited to ACM Computers in Entertainment.

Work-in-Progress Papers and Posters

For the first time in Pacific Graphics, the Pacific Graphics 2019 welcomes work-in-progress and poster submissions from all areas of computer graphics, such as modeling, rendering, animation, imaging, visualization, human-computer interaction, and graphics systems. Authors are encouraged to submit work-in-progress and practical applications to demonstrate a novel and applicable ideas in all aspects of computer graphics. Authors of accepted work-in-progress papers will have an approximately fifteen-minute oral presentation of their work at the conference. Accepted posters will be displayed during the conference and also will form the focus of a poster session in conjunction with one of the social events. Authors of accepted posters are expected to present their posters during the poster session to discuss their work and answer questions. More details will follow when the conference program is finalized.

Submission details

Authors can make an electronic submission through the Submission and Review Management (https://srmv2.eg.org/COMFy/Conference/PG_2019P). Authors are asked to indicate their preferences whether the submission needs to be considered as a work-in-progress paper or a poster. When both options are selected, the work will first be reviewed as a work-in-progress paper, and then evaluated as a poster submission. Work-in-progress papers and posters submission should strive not to exceed two pages and must be formatted according to the Pacific Graphics Author’s guideline. Authors may accompany a preliminary version of the actual poster if they choose to be considered as a poster submission. The review process will be double-blind. Please remove all personal data (e.g., names, affiliation, etc.) from your submission.

Alla Sheffer

Perception Driven Computational Shape Design


Humans have developed multiple ways to communicate about both tangible and abstract shape properties. Artists and designers can quickly and effectively convey complex shapes to a broad audience using traditional mediums such as paper, while both experts and the general public can analyze and agree on intangible shape properties such as style or aesthetics. While perception research provides some clues as to the mental processes humans employ when performing these tasks, concrete and quantifiable explanations of these actions are still lacking.

She is best known for her research on mesh parameterization, hexahedral meshing, computational garment design, and perception driven shape modeling. Dr. Sheffer is the recipient of the Canadian Human Computer Communications Society Achievement Award’18. Her research has been supported by faculty awards from IBM, Google and Adobe, Discovery, Discovery Accelerator and I2I NSERC grants, a Killam research fellowship, and an Audi Production Award. Dr. Sheffer has served as an Associate Editor of all three major computer graphics journals (ACM Transactions on Graphics, IEEE Transactions on Visualization Computer Graphics, and Eurographics Computer Graphics Forum). She served as a program co-chair for Eurographics’18, Symposium on Geometry Processing’06, and Shape Modeling’13. She was a general co-chair for the Pacific Graphics’18 and Geometric Modeling and Processing’19 conferences. Dr. Sheffer had co-authored over 100 peer-reviewed publications, including 42 papers in ACM Transactions on Graphics, the topmost competitive CG venue; 22 of these were published in the last five years. She holds six recent patents on methods for sketch analysis and hexahedral mesh generation.

Virtual Cyborg: Beyond Human Limits


The social revolutions have accompanied innovation of the view of the body. If we regard the information revolution as establishment of a virtual society against the real society, it is necessary to design a new view of body "JIZAI body (Virtual Cyborg)", which can adapt freely to the change of social structure, and establish a new view of the body. In this talk, we discuss how we understand of basic knowledge about the body editing for construction of JIZAI body (Virtual Cyborg) basedon VR, AR and Robotics. Superhuman Sports: Applying Human Augmentation to Physical Exercise. This talk will also present Superhuman Sports, a form of "Human-Computer Integration” to overcome somatic and spatial limitation of humanity by merging technology with the body. In Japan, official home of the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics , we hope to create a future of sports where everyone, strong or weak, young or old, non-disabled or disabled, can play and enjoy playing without being disadvantaged.
