The Matteo Dellepiane Award recognizes high quality research thesis produced in italian institutions. We aim to motivate young researchers, giving them the opportunity to present their works at an international scientific venue. Two awards will be granted: one for the best PhD thesis, and one for the best MSc thesis.

We invite nominations of young researchers whose PhD/MS/BS thesis respect the following requirements:

  • Subject in Visual Computing topics (in general all topics covered by Eurographics / Siggraph call for papers)
  • Research mainly conducted in Italy or in collaboration with Italian institutes (at least one advisor must be affiliated to an Italian institute).
  • Diploma granted between January 1st 2019 and July 31st, 2020.

To participate to the contest, researchers need to provide the following documentation:

  • The name and affiliation of the candidate
  • A pdf version of the Thesis (in English or Italian)
  • The name of advisors
  • Explicit mention of which publications resulted from the thesis.

The documentation of candidate nominations must be sent to the Thesis Awards chairs, Rita Borgo rita.borgo@kcl.ac.uk (Swansea University) and Marco Livesu marco.livesu@gmail.com (IMATI-CNR) not later than July 31st, 2020. Nominations can be sent by the candidate, the supervisor, or any other researcher. If you do not receive an acknowledgment, please contact the Thesis Awards chair again.

The Thesis Awards Committee will be selected between the members of STAG Technical committee. The Committee can decide, as an extraordinary measure, to increase the number of awards. The Committee will consider the quality of the work, the review reports, the quality and impact of the publications derived from the thesis, the completeness and coherence of the state of the art section in the thesis and any other relevant aspect of the work.
Awarded researchers will be announced and receive a plaque at the opening session of the STAG Conference (where they will profit from a free registration). They will be also invited to give a presentation during the conference.

The Smart Tools and Applications in Graphics (STAG) conference has been held in Cagliari (Italy) on November 14-15, 2019, and organizedby the Visual Computing Group of CRS4 (Center for Advanced Studies, Research and Development in Sardinia) and the University of Cagliari.
The conference was chaired by Ruggero Pintus (local chair), Massimiliano Corsini and Marco Agus (paper chairs) Daniela Giorgi and Alberto Jaspe (poster chairs).
This year, we have received 26 submissions, 21 full papers and 5 posters. Each paper/poster
underwent extensive review by a diverse International Program Committee, consisting of 30 persons from around the world having broad and deep expertise in Computer Graphics, Computer Vision, Visual Computing, and related disciplines. Thirteen papers have been accepted as full papers (62% full paper acceptance rate). Among five posters, four have been accepted (80% poster acceptance rate).
Three papers have been clearly identified by the reviewing scores and reviewers’ comments as natural nominees for the best paper award. The number of the registred participants to the conference were 25 (excluding complementary
registrations).
Authors of the best papers have been invited to submit an extended version for a Virtual Special Session published by Computers & Graphics Journal.

A causa delle incertezze legate a COVID-19 l'edizione 2020 della conferenza dell'EG Italian chapter, STAG 2020  si terrà quest'anno in forma virtuale!

Il capitolo Italiano di Eurographics è sconvolto e piange la prematura scomparsa di Matteo Dellepiane, non soltanto figura di spicco della Computer Graphics italiana e del mondo dei Beni Culturali, brillante e geniale ricercatore, ma anche una persona eccezionale dal punto di vista umano.

Sulla pagina web http://vcg.isti.cnr.it/matteodellepiane.php chi volesse, può lasciare un ricordo a testimonianza di quanto ha dato a tutti coloro che hanno avuto la fortuna di conoscerlo.

 

The EG school on Graphics and Geometry Processing for Digital Manufacturing has been organized in Brescia, from October 16 to October 18 and co-chaired by
Silvia Biasotti (IMATI/CNR Genova), Andrea Giachetti (University of Verona) and Alberto Signoroni (University of Brescia).
The school had a full program of 20 hours of lectures and lab demonstrations,
with lectures by Fabio Pellacini, Marco Livesu, Jesus Perez, Marco Tarini, Marco
Centin, Luigi Malomo. It was a good success with about 30 students
participating. We hope to repeat the experience in the next years!
STAG 2018 was co-located with the school, the Event Chair was Alberto Signoroni (University of Brescia), program chairs were Marco Livesu (CNR- IMATI) and Gianni Pintore (CRS4). The conference received a good number of submissions (18) and 14 papers were accepted and presented by authors.
Authors of the 4 best papers were invited to submit an extended version of their work for a special Section of the Computers & Graphics Journal.
The conference featured a keynote talk by prof. Mario Botsch (Bielefeld University).
The thesis awards this year included also an award for best PhD theses. The
referees, coordinated by the chair, Marco Agus (Kaust), selected the awarded
works. The best PhD thesis award was given to Simone Melzi (University of
Verona), the best Master thesis award was given to Thomas Alderighi
(University of Pisa) and the best Bachelor thesis award to Matteo Bracci.

Quest'anno il premio tesi, pur avendo eliminato la distinzione tra tesi magistrali e triennali, ha comunque due vincitori. La commissione giudicatrice presieduta da Marco Agus, con molta fatica, dato il buon numero di tesi di ottimo livello, ha infatti stabilito un ex-aequo tra corio-foto-bndue vincitori:

Elena Corio, laureatasi presso l'università di Pisa con la tesi An innovative sail-shaped shelter for the Ancient Ships Archaeological site of Pisa Conception and parametric design

 

ed Elia Moscoso Thompsopic_elian, che ha conseguito la laurea presso l'università di Genova con la tesi Analisi e riconoscimento di tessiture caratteristiche su superfici 3D

Congratulazioni ai vincitori, che verranno premiati durante STAG 2017
