Our Structure

Our research methodology is tightly linked to our training objectives, and our goal is to build an environment in which all participating researchers would naturally contribute to these training objectives. The four research objectives, Improved Capture, Authoring, Simulation, and Learning, correspond to four science work packages (WP1-4). Each ESR’s individual project is tied to one or more of these four objectives.

Project research objectives and training goals will also be realized using an additional four work packages (WPs), as described below:

WP1 Improved Capture

ESR08: Dynamic geometry capture and generative modeling of 3D geometry

ESR11: Sparse sub-space representations

ESR12: Compressed sensing for material capture

ESR15: Acquisition of wave-optical effects in material appearance

ESR02: Efficient fluorescence capture

WP2 Improved Authoring

ESR02: Natural Materials, with particular emphasis on wood appearance

ESR10: Material appearance specification and rendering using the BSSRDF

ESR14: Perceptually-Driven Intuitive Editing of Complex Data-Driven Appearance

WP3 Improved Simulation

ESR06: Rendering outside the visible spectrum

ESR13: Efficient Rendering of Volumetric Structured Appearances

ESR01: Fluorescence rendering

ESR01: Using optical brighteners for contrast enhancement in 3D printing

ESR03: Advanced Light Transport Simulation for Virtual Reality

ESR04: Developing Robust Error Bounds for Light Transport Algorithms

WP4 Improved Learning

ESR07: Predicting weathering / aged appearance

ESR09: Modelling and predictive rendering of particulate materials

ESR05: Synthetic training data for vision and sensing

ESR08: GAN-based furniture placement in synthesized indoor scenes

ESR15: Learning based wave optical appearance estimation and rendering

WP5 Training programme

The overall training goal of the PRIME network is to provide a generation of young scientists with a broad and inherently inter-sectoral training in predictive rendering technologies.

Our four training objectives are:

WP6 Outreach and dissemination

Dissemination of the research results through: top-tier scientific publications; benchmark suites; participation and presentation at academic and industry oriented workshops; commercial exploitation; academic and industrial secondments.

Communication to a broader audience via different means:science popularisation events; popularscience media outlets;

national-level science meets; press releases; website updates; social media

WP7 Management Work Package

WP8 Ethics requirements

This work package sets out the ‘ethics requirements’ that the project must comply with.
