Mathematical Progress in Expressive Image Synthesis 2018

8 -- 9 Dec. 2018, Shibaura Institute of Technology


The aim of this international symposium is to provoke interaction between researchers from two disciplines: Computer Graphics and Mathematics. The MEIS2018 is the sixth in the series of the annual symposium commenced as MEIS2013.

In recent years, advanced mathematical theories have been utilized in CG and have enabled richer visual expression. In turn, problems in CG have been one of the driving forces for the emerging fields in mathematics such as discrete differential geometry. This two-day meeting will provide a unique venue for the both community to realize and discuss problems and possibility for new interdisciplinary research projects through the invited talks.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Tokyo in December 2018.

Past symposiums: MEIS2017, MEIS2016, MEIS2015, MEIS2014, MEIS2013
