Short Bio

Michael Wimmer is currently a full professor at the Institute of Visual Computing and Human-Centered Technology at TU Wien, where he heads the Rendering and Modeling Group. He is also the director of the Center for Geometry and Computational Design (GCD). His academic career started with his M.Sc. in 1997 at TU Wien, where he also obtained his Ph.D. in 2001.

His research interests are real-time rendering, computer games, real-time visualization of urban environments, point-based rendering, reconstruction of urban models, procedural modeling, shape modeling and computational design.

He has coauthored over 180 papers in these fields. He also coauthored the book Real-Time Shadows. He regularly serves on program committees of the important conferences in the field, including ACM SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia, Eurographics, IEEE VR, Eurographics Symposium on Rendering, ACM I3D, SGP, SMI, HPG, etc. He is currently associate editor of Computers & Graphics, and previously for ACM Transactions on Graphics, IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, and Computer Graphics Forum. He was papers co-chair of EGSR 2008, Pacific Graphics 2012, Eurographics 2015, Eurographics GCH 2018, VMV 2019, EG 2021 short papers, and Assistant Chair of ACM SIGGRAPH 2023.

Fast Out-of-Core Octree Generation for Massive Point Clouds
Computer Graphics Forum, 39(7):1-13, November 2020. [paper]
Journal Paper with Conference Talk
We present Points2Surf, a method to reconstruct an accurate implicit surface from a noisy point cloud. Unlike current data-driven surface reconstruction methods like DeepSDF and AtlasNet, it is patch-based, improves detail reconstruction, and unlike Screened Poisson Reconstruction (SPR), a learned prior of low-level patch shapes improves reconstruction accuracy. 
Note the quality of reconstructions, both geometric and topological, against the original surfaces. The ability of Points2Surf to generalize to new shapes makes it the first learning-based approach with significant generalization ability under both geometric and topological variations.
