My talk at CESCG 2015 is now available on YouTube

Everything you need to know to hold a great talk – or the story of how I made an idiot out of myself at CESCG 2015. 🙂

Everyone knows a good talk when they see it, but no one seems to know what really makes a good talk. There is much more to a talk than just the slides: your posture, energy, enthusiasm, and many other factors contribute greatly to holding a great and memorable talk. We explore both success and failure cases to make sure you know exactly what you should work on to get better!

This talk was held at the 19th Central European Seminar on Computer Graphics (CESCG 2015), Smolenice.

Any Questions?

Silvana Podaras won both the #1 best presentation and #2 best paper awards at the Central European Seminar on Computer Graphics for students (2014) out of more than 20 submissions and talks (link). People went absolutely crazy after the talk and we got pinned down for questions and discussions until very late in the night.

All this as a Bachelor student. This is the proudest day of my life.




The applause after her talk (it’s loud!):


Automated Lighting Design For Photorealistic Rendering

Silvana Podaras, my Bachelor student had her paper accepted to CESCG 2014! It is implemented as a LuxRender module and is available here. Be sure to read the attached readme. Congratulations! 🙂

We’re continuing this work, so if you decided to pick this up and improve it in any way, let us know!
