EGFR Webinar series

The EGFR Webinar series is a monthly live event showcasing the latest research results on Computer Graphics and related topics: geometry processing, rendering, animation, simulation, computational imaging, applied mathematics, and more.

This event is organized by the French Chapter of the Eurographics association and aims at structuring the research community around high-quality talks given by prominent international speakers. In order to keep the webinar series interactive and encourage discussions, the webinars are broadcast live on Youtube and made available on a dedicated channel.

Each webinar has 4 phases:

  • Opening: Junior researchers from the French research community are invited to open each talk by a 10-minute presentation of their research results. We specifically target third-year PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and permanent researchers recruited recently.
  • Talk: Around 40 minutes, given by a leading researcher in Computer Graphics or related areas.
  • Q&A: Around 10 minutes and chaired by the organizers. Questions can be asked on the Youtube chat and discord.
  • One-to-one discussions: (depending on the speaker’s availability) Short one-to-one discussions between the speaker and junior researchers (third-year PhD students, post-doctoral researchers). This zoom-based discussion gives junior researchers the opportunity to present their work and get feedback from the speaker. See below how to apply. The number of participants and session time will be adapted according to the speaker availability.
