Andrea Tagliasacchi, GrUVi Ph.D. student who is doing an academic visit at INRIA, France, has been invited to give a talk at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) on "Geometric Skeletons". The talk was hosted by Mark Pauly's group.
Supported by a recently awarded NSERC Michael Smith Study Supplement, Andrea will be visiting the GEOMETRICA group in Sophia-Antipolis for the period Sep.2012--Feb.2013. He will be working within Pierre Alliez's group, applying Optimal Transport theory to tackle problems in robust surface reconstruction.
Usman successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis on July 16 on "DATA PROCESSING ON THE BODY-CENTERED CUBIC LATTICE".

Our paper on mean curvature skeletons is accepted to SGP 2012. The paper, titled "Mean Curvature Skeletons", describes a skeleton extraction approch via mean curvature flow. This method effienctly produce smoother and more medial curve skeletons than the prior state-of-the-art contraction method. The paper and source code are available from the project page.
