    About the authors

    Tom McReynolds

    Tom McReynolds has worked on 3D graphics at Sun Microsystems, Silicon Graphics, Gigapixel, 3DFX, and NVIDIA. He has worked in software organizations, writing graphics libraries and drivers, and on the hardware side, writing simulators and verification software for 3D hardware. He presented 3D graphics courses at a number of SIGGRAPH conferences, as well as at a number of Silicon Graphics Developer conferences, an X technical conference, and at LinuxWorld. Tom is currently managing a development team to 3D graphics drivers for embedded GPUs at NVIDIA, and contributing to the evolution of OpenGL-ES by participating in the Khronos working group.

    Erik Reinhard

    Erik Reinhard is assistant professor at the University of Bristol and founder and editor-in-chief (with Heinrich Bülthoff) of ACM Transactions on Applied Perception. He is interested in the interface between visual perception and computer graphics and also in high dynamic range image editing. His work in HDRI includes the SIGGRAPH 2005 Computer Animation Festival contribution Image-based Material Editing, as well as tone reproduction and color appearance algorithms. He holds a BSc and a TWAIO diploma in computer science from Delft University of Technology and a PhD in computer science from the University of Bristol, and was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Utah.

    David Luebke

    David Luebke
    David is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia. His principal research interest is the problem of rendering very complex scenes at interactive rates. His research focuses on software techniques such as polygonal simplification and occlusion culling to reduce the complexity of such scenes to manageable levels. Luebke's dissertation research, summarized in a SIGGRAPH '97 paper, introduced a dynamic, view-dependent approach to polygonal simplification for interactive rendering of extremely complex CAD models. He earned his Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina, and his Bachelors degree at the Colorado College.

    Bernhard Preim

    Bernhard Preim is Professor of Visualization in the Computer Science Department of the U of Magdeburg. He has given many tutorials on medical visualization at IEEE Visualization, Eurographics, EuroVis and Computer-Assisted Radiology and Surgery. He was founder of the German "Visual Computing in Medicine" group which has held two yearly workshops since 2003. Together with Charl Botha (Delft), he initiated the Eurographics Workshop series on “Visual Computing in Biology and Medicine”. Bernhard now heads the VCBM steering committee. Currently, Bernhard and Charl serve as editors for a special issue on “Visual Computing in Biology and Medicine” in the journal "Computers and Graphics". Recently, Bernhard Preim was invited to serve as associate editor of the premium journal IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging. Bernhard is regularly Visiting Professor at Fraunhofer MEVIS and heads the scientific advisory board of ICCAS (Innovation Center Computer Assisted Surgery). In the German Society for Computer-Assisted Surgery he has been board member since 2007 and first Vice-President since 2009.
