A staggering six papers affiliated with the VCL were presented at the Eurographics Symposium on Rendering in Strasbourg, France last week. All bore the name of VCL Director Wojciech Jarosz, who co-presented his work “Orthogonal array sampling for Monte Carlo rendering” with advisee and recent Bachelor’s graduate Afnan Enayet. In addition, VCL PhD student Kate Salesin presented her work “Combining point and line samples for direct illumination” and past VCL postdoc Gurprit Singh presented his work “Fourier analysis of correlated Monte Carlo importance sampling” at the conference.

Jarosz also chaired the Deep Learning session at the conference.
