ACM Student Research Competition

SIGGRAPH 2015 hosts an ACM Student Research Competition, which takes place in two stages. In the first stage, a panel of distinguished judges views the SRC posters during the poster sessions and selects six semi-finalists. These semi-finalists present their work to SIGGRAPH 2015 attendees during the ACM SRC Final Presentation. At the end of the presentations, the judges announce the first-, second-, and third-place winners in the undergraduate and graduate categories. First-place undergraduate and graduate winners go on to the nationwide ACM Student Research Competition.

The selected finalists are:

Undergraduate Finalists

  • Ben Knowles, Increasing Realism of Animated Grass in Real-Time Environments 
  • Daniel Rakita, Inferring Gaze Shifts From Captured Body Motion
  • Shugo Yamaguchi, BGMaker: Example-Based Anime Background Image Creation From a Photograph

Graduate Finalists

  • Robert Gregor, Fractured 3D Object Restoration and Completion
