Bio:

  • SIGGRAPH 1999

    Przemyslaw Prusinkiewicz is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Calgary. He has been conducting research in computer graphics since the late 1970s. In 1985, he originated a method for visualizing the structure and the development of plants based on L-systems, a mathematical model of development. He is a co-author of two books, “Lindenmayer Systems, Fractals and Plants” (Springer-Verlag 1990) and “The Algorithmic Beauty of Plants” (Springer-Verlag 1990), as well as numerous technical papers. In 1997, he received the ACM SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics Achievement Award for his work pertaining to the modeling and visualization of biological structures. Prusinkiewicz holds a M.S. and Ph.D., both in Computer Science, from the Technical University of Warsaw. He has lectured at SIGGRAPH courses on fractals, procedural modeling, modeling of natural phenomena, and artificial life.  

    SIGGRAPH 1995

    Przemyslaw Prusinkiewicz is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Calgary. He has been conducting research in computer graphics since the late 1970s. In 1985, he originated a method for visualizing the structure and the development of plants based on L-systems, a mathematical model of development. He is a co-author of three textbooks and two monographs, Lindenmayer Systems, Fractals and Plants (Springer-Verlag 1989) and The Algorithmic Beauty of Plants (Springer-Verlag 1990), as well as approximately 50 technical papers. His current research includes the mathematical modeling and visualization of various aspects of morphogenesis Professor Prusinkiewicz holds an M S and Ph D, both in Computer Science, from the Technical University of Warsaw. Before joining the faculty of the University of Calgary, he was Professor at the University of Regma, and Assistant Professor at the University of Science and Technology of Algiers. He was also a Visiting Professor at Yale University (1988), at L’Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (1990), and an invited researcher at the University of Bremen (1989) and the Centre for Tropical Pest Management in Brisbane (1993, 1994).  

    SIGGRAPH 1990

    Dr. Prusinkiewicz is Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Regina, Canada, where he is leading the Computer Graphics Group. Born and raised in Poland, he received his M. Sc. and Ph. D. degrees, both from the Technical University of Warsaw, Poland, in 1974 and 1978. Before moving to Canada in 1982, he was Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of Science and Technology in Algiers. In 1988 he was Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Yale University. The focus of his research is in the area of fractals and the modeling of plants. He is author (with coauthor Aristid Lindenmayer) of the book “The Algorithmic Beauty of Plants” (Springer- Verlag, 1990). Dr. Prusinkiewicz is a member of the ACM, SIGGRAPH, and the IEEE Computer Society.
