Issei Fujishiro was born in Tokyo in 1960. He received his B.E. and M.E. in information sciences and electronics in 1983 and 1985 both from University of Tsukuba, and his Doctor of Science in information sciences from the University of Tokyo in 1988. Fujishiro started his career as an assistant professor at the University of Tokyo in 1985, and then worked as a faculty member for University of Tsukuba, Ochanomizu University, and Tohoku University, before joining Keio University in 2009, where he is currently a Professor at Department of Information and Computer Science, Faculty of Science and Technology and the Chief Professor at Center for Information and Computer Science, Graduate School of Science and Technology, both in Yokohama. He was elected as an honorary alumnus from Keio University in 2015. He stayed as a Visiting Professor of Computer Science at the State University of New York, Stony Brook, NY, USA during 1994 to 1995. His research interests include shape representation and modeling paradigm, applied visualization design and provenance management, and smart multi-modal ambient media, and authored 278 academic papers and 88 survey articles and authored/edited 39 books/Proceedings related to these research topics. He received 34 international/domestic awards, including the 16th CG Japan Award in 2017 from the Society for Art and Science (SAS) and the Most Cited Paper Award for the Journal Graphical Models 2004-2006 from Elsevier Science. He served as the President of Institute of Image Electronics Engineers of Japan (IIEEJ) and a Vice President for SAS. He has served on the editorial boards for academic journals, including IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (1999-2003, 2018 to present), Computers & Graphics (2003-2013), and Visual Informatics (2016 to present). He guest-edited 10 special issues of academic journals, including IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications (Vol. 28, No. 5, 2008 and Vol. 35, No. 6, 2015). He has been served on the steering committee for IEEE SciVis since 2015 and IEEE PacificVis since 2008. He served as a Program Chair/Co-Chair for Volume Graphics 2003/2005, IEEE PacificVis 2008, ACM VRCAI 2014, and IEEE VIS 2018 (SciVis); chaired 24 international conferences, including IEEE SMI 2006, Cyberworlds 2013, IEEE PacificVis 2014, ACM VRCAI 2015, TopoInVis 2017, CG International 2017, and PacificVAST 2018; and served on program committees for 141 international conferences. Fujishiro is currently a Member of Science Council of Japan, a Board Director for the Japan Federation of Engineering Societies and International Information Science Foundation, and a Trustee for SAS and CG-ARTS. He is a honorary member, fellow and representative of IIEEJ and a member for IEEE (Computer Society/VGTC), ACM (SIGGRAPH), Eurographics, Computer Graphics Society, IPSJ (CGVI), IEICE, JSCES, VRSJ, and ITE.

ジェネレーティブアートとは,コンピュータの自律的な計算によって生み出される芸術作品をさし,フラクタル画像や物理的な挙動などの複雑な計算をコンピュータで計算した多くの作品が創出されている.本研究では,応力を加えると複屈折の状態が変化し,偏光を照射した際に干渉縞が出現する光弾性という現象を用い,入力画像から仮想的に応力を設定し,2 次元光弾性理論による干渉縞を生成することで自動的に画像を彩色するジェネレーティブアートの新しい手法を提案する.

CG の分野において,炎や煙,雲といった効果を表現するためにビルボードが使用されている.また,こうしたビルボードを用いた表現によってエフェクトを生成できるシステムが存在する.しかし,ビルボードを用いた表現は物体の内部を描いていないため,視点によっては矛盾が生じる場合があり,また,三次元的な深さ情報を正確にもたないため,他の物体とのレンダリング時に前後関係が崩れることがある.さらに,両眼視型のバーチャルリアリティシステムにおいては, 左右とも同様のレンダリング結果を生じるため,視点との距離が...
