  • SIGGRAPH 1995

    Demetri Terzopoulos (Chair) (PhD ’84 EECS, MIT, MEng ’80 EE, BEng ’78 Hons EE, McGill U) is a full professor of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto, where he directs the Visual Modeling Group, and is a Fellow in the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Program of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research. From 1985-92 he was affiliated with Schlumberger, Inc , serving as Program Leader at its research labs in Palo Alto, CA, and Austin, TX. During 1984-85 he was a research scientist at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab, Cambridge, MA. He has published more than 150 scientific articles primarily in computer vision and graphics but also in computer-aided design, medical imaging, artificial intelligence, and artificial life, including the recent edited volumes “Real-Time Computer Vision” (Cambridge Univ Press ’94) and “Animation and Simulation” (Springer-Verlag ’95). He has been a SIGGRAPH course and panel organizer and has produced 7 SIGGRAPH technical papers in his eight years of graphics research. His graphics and vision work has been recognized with several awards, including 3 university Excellence Awards, an award from the American Association for Artificial Intelligence in 1987 for his work on deformable models in vision, an award from the IEEE in 1987 for his work on active contours (snakes), an award from the Canadian Academy of Multimedia Arts and Sciences in 1994 and an award from Arts Electronica in 1995 both for his work on artificial animals. He serves on the editorial boards of Graphical Models and Image Processing and the Journal of Visualization and Computer Animation and on advisory committees for the Advanced Research Projects Agency and the National Institutes of Health.
