Bio:

  • SIGGRAPH 1996

    Brian Wyvill is a professor in the department of computer science at the University of Calgary. After gaining his PhD in the UK in 1975, he worked at the Royal College of Art as a post doc. in London on a computer animation system used to make sequences for the film ‘‘Alien’’. Since coming to Calgary in 1981, Brian’s research has concentrated on building the Graphicsland Animation and visualization system. Recent work is in the areas of implicit surface modeling, animation techniques and scientific visualization. Brian has directed several animations (two shown at SIGGRAPH) that feature implicit surfaces. Currently he is interested in a very efficient adaptive tiling algorithm, as well as new techniques for warping, blending and collision detection using implicit surfaces and most recently the simulation of lightning and glowing objects. Brian is a member of ACM, SIGGRAPH, and the editorial boards of the Visual Computer and the Journal of Animation and Scientific Visualization.

    SIGGRAPH 1993

    Brian is a professor at the University of Calgary where he leads the GraphicsJungle research group. In addition to publishing several papers on modeling and animation, Brian has directed several animations (two shown at SIGGRAPH) that feature implicit surfaces.  

    SIGGRAPH 1988

    Brian Wyvill received his Ph.D from the University of Bradford in 1975 and continued his interest in computer animation as a research fellow at the Royal College of Art. Wyvill is now a full Professor at the University of Calgary, where he leads the GRAPHICSLAND animation research team. His current interests are in “soft” objects, motion control and recursive data structures for computer animation. He is a member of ACM, IEEE Computer Society, CGS and SIGGRAPH and the editorial board of The Visual Computer.
