Tomoyuki Nishita

Department of Complexity Science and Engineering,
Graduate School of Frontier Sciences,
The University of Tokyo



Tomoyuki Nishita is a professor in the Department of Complexity Science and Engineering
(also in the Department of Information Science) at the University of Tokyo, Japan since
1998. He received his BE, ME and Ph.D in Engineering in 1971, 1973, and 1985,
respectively, from Hiroshima University. He taught at Fukuyama University from 1979 to
1998 He was an associate researcher in the Engineering Computer Graphics Laboratory at
Brigham Young University from 1988 to 1989. His research interests center in CG
including lighting/shading models (radiosity), natural phenomena, real-time rendering,
geometric modeling, and non-photorealistic rendering. He is one of the pioneers of
radiosity method. He has written 15 SIGGRAPH papers and 18 EUROGRAPHICS papers.
Dr. Nishita received Research Award on Computer Graphics from Information Processing
Society of Japan in 1987, and also received Steaven A. Coons award from ACM
SIGGRAPH in 2005. He was a president of The Institute of Image Electronics Engineers of
Japan in 2009-2010.


"Particle-based Simulation for Computer Graphics "

In recent years, point primitives have received growing attention in computer graphics.
As point primitives, particles and metaballs are often used. The particle system refers
to a computer graphics technique to simulate certain fuzzy phenomena. Point-based
modeling/rendering has its roots in particle systems. Metaball technique is used for
definition of implicit surfaces or density distribution. The SPH (Smoothed-particle
hydrodynamics) method is also used for simulating fluid flows. They can add realism to
a scene. These techniques are useful for representation of object geometry, and
simulation/rendering of dynamics and optical effects of natural phenomena.

My talk includes the following topics: 1) Geometric modeling represented by metaballs or
points such as point-sampled surfaces. 2) Efficient rendering of metaballs using Bezier
clipping method and GPU. 3) Realistic rendering of natural scenes consisting small particles
such as clouds, water, smoke, atmospheric scattering, snow (avalanche), solar prominence,
ice melting, and fire. And Realistic shading due to radiosity for point-sampled geometry.
4) Dynamic simulation of fluids and material such as water flow(or water droplets on windshield),
sands (or dune), dust, hair, strings, cloths, object destruction, Magnetorheological fluid,
and oil painting.


Hokky Situngkir




"Hokky Situngkir is interested in diverse spectrum of research work,
including artificial societies and social simulations, memetics and
cultural studies, dynamical system analysis, neural network and
statistical modeling of econophysics and financial analysis. He was one of
the founders of Bandung Fe Institute and the chairperson of Dept.
Computational Sociology at the institute until now. Most of his works are
reflecting the computational model in broad theoretical as well as
practical fields. His research projects on econophysics are presented as a
senior research fellow at the Surya Research International Inc., an
science-based consulting company in Indonesia with some previous
consultancy projects in Jakarta Stock Exchange. One of his current
concerns is about the approach of complexity sciences to Indonesian
traditional culture and ethnography. He was one of the founders of
Indonesian Archipelago Cultural Initiatives (IACI) that has maintained the
Indonesian Traditional Heritages Open Digital Library
(www.budaya-indonesia.org). His works in the subject of complexity of
Indonesian traditional culture have been widely implemented as the mapping
of Indonesian batik, traditional songs, traditional architecture, and the
"Physics of Batik", a popular fractal geometry-based computational
platforms for Indonesian batik. He has published hundreds of research
papers in those areas, including some of the in the refereed international
journals and conference papers, such as Journal of Social Complexity,
Physica A, Journal of Literary Complexity Studies. For his works, he has
been awarded the Ahmad Bakrie Award 2011 for the category of Outstanding
Young Scientist. He is currently also an Ashoka Fellow for his activities
empowering community through the works of scientific research."


"Computational Batik: the deconstruction and re-generation of Indonesian
Batik" (PDF)

The presentation discusses some aspects of Iterated Function System while
referring to some interesting point of view into Indonesian traditional
batik. The deconstruction is delivered in our recognition of the Collage
Theorem to find the affine transform of the iterated function system that
attracts the iteration of drawing the dots into the complex motif of ? or
at least, having high similarity to ? batik patterns. We employ and
revisit the well-known Chaos Game to reconstruct after having some basic
motifs is deconstructed. The reconstruction of the complex pattern opens a
quest of creativity broadening the computationally generated batik
exploiting its self-similarity properties. A challenge to meet the modern
computational generative art with the traditional batik designs is
expected to yield synergistic interesting results aesthetically. The paper
concludes with two arrows of our further endeavors in this field, be it
enriching our understanding of how human cognition has created such
beautiful patterns and designs traditionally since ancient civilizations
in our anthropological perspective, while in the other hand providing us
tool to the empowerment of batik as generative aesthetics by employment of
