Best Paper & Best Poster Awards

As announced in the call for participation, a number of best papers have been selected for extension to IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics articles. The authors of these papers will be recognized during the awards ceremony at the end of the conference.

Thanks to generous donations by NVIDIA, we will be awarding a prize for the best paper presentation. A winner will be determined by a committee of judges, based mainly by quality and clarity of author presentations. The award will be presented at the end of the conference.

Thanks to generous donations by AK Peters, we will be awarding a prize for the best poster(s). Winners will be determined based upon the quality of the work, the quality of the fast-forward summary, and the presentation during the poster session.
