Bio:

  • SIGGRAPH 2014

    Ming C. Lin Ming Lin received her Ph.D. in EECS from the University of California, Berkeley. She is currently John R. & Louise S. Parker Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at UNC,  Chapel Hill. She received several honors, nine best-paper awards, Best Course Notes in SIGGRAPH 2007, and 2010 IEEE VGTC Technical Achievement Award. She is a Fellow of ACM and  IEEE. She has authored over 240 refereed publications in physically-based modeling, sound and  haptic rendering, robotics, and geometric computing. She has served as the conference and program chair and a steering committee member of over 25 international conferences. She is also the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE TVCG and guest editor of over a dozen of journals and magazines. She has given many invited lectures and keynotes at SIGGRAPH and other international conferences.  

    SIGGRAPH 2008

    Ming C. Lin received her Ph.D. in EECS from UC Berkeley. She is currently Beverly Long Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at UNC Chapel Hill. She received several honors and six best-paper awards. She has authored over 170 refereed publications in physically-based-modeling, haptics, motion planning, and geometric computing. She has served as the chair of over 15 conferences and steering committee/board member of IEEE VR, ACM/EG SCA, and IEEE TC on  Haptics and on Motion Planning. She is also the associated EIC of IEEE TVCG and serves on 4 editorial boards. She has given many lectures at SIGGRAPH and other conferences.  

    SIGGRAPH 1999

    Ming Lin received her B.S., M.S., Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 1988, 1991, 1993 respectively from the University of California, Berkeley. She is currently an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of North Carolina (UNC), Chapel Hill. Prior to joining UNC, she was an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at both Naval Postgraduate School and North Carolina A&T State University, and a Program Manager at the U.S. Army Research Office. She received the NSF Young Faculty Career Award in 1995 and Honda Research Initiation award in 1997. Her research interests include real time 3D graphics for virtual environments, applied computational geometry, physically based modeling, robotics and distributed interactive simulation. She has served as a program committee member for many leading conferences on virtual reality, computer graphics, and computational geometry. She was the general chair of the Fust ACM Workshop on Applied Computational Geometry and the co-Chair of 1999 ACM Symposium on Solid Modeling and Applications. She is also a guest editor of the International Journal on Computational Geometry and Applications, the co-editor of “Applied Computation Geometry”, and the Category Editor of ACM Computing Reviews in Computer Graphics. She has also consulted for a number of companies including Intel, Mechanical Dynamics and Division. Ming has been working in computational geometry, computer graphics and virtual environments for more than nine years. Over the last five years, she has led the development of a number of algorithms and systems for interactive collision detection. These include I-COLLIDE, RAPID, V-COLLIDE, S-COLLIDE and H-COLLIDE. They have been widely used by a number of researchers and the technology has been licensed by more than 20 commercial organizations. Over the last five years, she has taught courses on computer graphics, physically based modeling, computational geometry and robotics at Naval Postgraduate School, NC A & T U11iversity and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
