Keynote Speakers

Fabio Pellacini

Fabio Pellacini

Associate Professor of Computer Science, Sapienza University of Rome, Italy


The main research interest of Prof. Pellacini is the investigation of computational methods to support design of 3D objects, from their shape to their appearance, through the development of interactive rendering algorithms, intuitive design interfaces, novel fabrication methods, and user studies. This research led to various theoretical results and practical applications in the areas of interactive realistic rendering, 3D printing, user interfaces and visual perception.

Shengdong Zhao

Shengdong Zhao

Professor of Computer Science, School of Computing, NUS Singapore


Prof. Zhao is founder and head of the NUS-HCI Lab, the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory at the National University of Singapore. The lab’s mission is to create a word-class HCI research laboratory in Asia. Lab members’ research interests include interfaces and interaction techniques to facilitate creative expressions as well as encourage cooperative social interactions, a.k.a. creative social interaction.

Anders Ynnerman

Anders Ynnerman

Professor in Scientific Visualization


Prof. Ynnerman holds a chair in scientific visualization at Linköping University and he is the director of the Norrköping Visualization Center C, which currently constitutes one of the main focal points for research and education in computer graphics and visualization in the Nordic region, and hosts a public arena with large scale visualization facilities. He is also one of the co-founders of the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV), and has directed the Swedish National Graduate School in Scientific Computing, the Swedish National Supercomputer Centre, and the the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC).
