Towards Collaborative 3D Design

Speaker:  Fabio Pellacini - Università Sapienza

Collaborative document editing, in real-time or offline, is ubiquitous when running projects in teams.
When designing 3D objects and environments though, collaboration is hampered by the lack of reliable solutions.
In this talk, I will summarise our recent work on bringing collaboration to 3D design tasks. In particular, I will show 
prototype systems for real-time collaborative shape modeling, like Google Docs, and for offline whole scene version control,
like Git.

Fabio Pellacini is a Full Professor of Computer Science at Sapienza University of Rome. His work focuses on algorithms
and systems for designing and rendering complex 3D environments with an emphasis on the creative, fabrication and 
entertainment industries.
Pellacini received his Laurea degree in Physics from the University of Parma (Italy), and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Cornell University.
Pellacini received an NSF CAREER award and and an Alfred P. Sloan fellowship for his research contributions, the two major awards for young researchers in 
North America (roughly equivalent in prestige to an ERC Starting Grant).
Before Sapienza he was a faculty member at Dartmouth, a US Ivy Legue university, and has worked for Pixar Animation Studios on lighting algorithms, where his 
work received credits on three Oscar-nominated movies.
