As another year closes, we’re reflecting on the positives. Though 2018 brought about change across all of computer graphics, research once again takes the cake for capturing our readers’ attention (that’s you!). Here’s a roundup of our top stories from the last year. Enjoy!


1. Challenge Accepted: Infinite Walking in VR

A detailed account from computer scientists with Stony Brook University, NVIDIA, and Adobe on their computational framework, which gives VR users the perception of infinite walking in the virtual world while limited to a small physical space.


2. Student Interviews: First-place graduate, First-place undergraduate

Interviews with SIGGRAPH 2017 ACM Student Research Competition first-place graduate winner Chloe LeGendre about her winning project, “Improved Chromakey of Hair Strands via Orientation Filter Convolution” and first-place undergraduate winners Tiancheng Sun and Ana Serrano about their winning project, “Attribute-preserving gamut mapping of measured BRDFs.”


3. Research Preview: SIGGRAPH 2018 Art Papers
