The Sixth Annual Eurographics Workshop on Material Appearance Modeling
The purpose of this workshop is to discuss and define open issues
in the acquisition and modeling of material appearance. In this workshop, we
gather researchers and potential users of material appearance models to define
what the major challenges and problems are in this area. One output of the
workshop will be a document available through the EG Digital Library (past
editions are at http://diglib.eg.org/handle/10.2312/2584
) that is intended to
help guide future development of material appearance modeling.
As in the previous years, the workshop will include short
presentations of position papers. Types of position papers include:
SUBMISSIONS FROM INDUSTRIAL USERS OR POTENTIAL USERS OF DIGITAL MATERIAL MODELS
Suitable topics of this type include description
of practical applications of digital models and problems that have been
encountered. Are there some materials that aren't possible to model with
current methods? Do some software systems fail to successfully predict
appearance? Are there some desirable editing operations that aren't possible
with current systems?
SUBMISSIONS FROM RESEARCHERS ON THEIR VIEW OF THE GRAND CHALLENGES IN MATERIAL APPEARANCE
What are the big problems we still need to solve?
Are there significant problems that require solution of wave equations that we
still can't handle? Are there problems that require physical property data that
we don't know how to get? Do we need better perceptual models? What are the
material appearance modeling problems associated with 3D printing?
SUBMISSIONS FROM ALL GROUPS DESCRIBING ACQUISITION SYSTEMS AND PERFORMANCE
Technical papers typically describe the design of
systems and initial results. Reports of practical experience with system are
needed, including reports on what works well, and what works poorly. This type
of “experience” report is needed to move the field forward, but is not eligible
for publication in traditional conferences and journals.
REFLECTIONS AND EXTENSIONS
If you recently had a journal paper (including
Eurographics and SIGGRAPH papers) on material appearance modeling and have
additional data, information or insights about the work beyond what was
presented in the original paper, you are welcome to present these at the
workshop. Submit an abstract summarizing what you will present that augments
the original paper.
FABRICATING MATERIAL APPEARANCE
3D printing systems are becoming available for reproducing color and gloss. Papers on fabrication issues are welcome.
All submissions should be four pages or less in
length, using the Style Guide given in egPublStyle-MAM2018.zip
. The deadline for
submissions is JUNE 15, 2018
. Submissions and any
questions should be sent via email to the workshop organizers: Holly Rushmeier (firstname.lastname@example.org
