Speaker: WAN Liang

Time: Jan 15, 3:30pm - 4:30pm.

Location: Room 310, Teaching Center

Abstract:

Spherical panoramas record surrounding environment into one image, offering a 360-degree field-of-view much larger than normal lens and human eyes. Thanks to the rapid development in image stitching techniques, panoramic imaging system and smart phones, the acquisition of panoramas has become much available. Spherical panoramas gain increasing popularity in computer games, special effect design, virtual reality applicants, etc, and they are helpful to largely improve rendering reality of 3D virtual scenes. In this talk, I will introduce the research progress from our group on panoramic image processing, including real-time virtual navigation, spherical feature extraction, and environment map sampling.

Bio:

WAN Liang is an associate professor from School of Computer Software in Tianjin University. She obtained Ph.D. degree in computer science and engineering from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2007, and conducted postdoctoral work in Dept. of Electronic Engineering, City University of Hong Kong before 2011. She joined Tianjin University since 2011. Her research interests lie in the field of computer graphics and image processing, including panoramic image processing, image-based rendering, and 3D geometry processing.
