• Short CV

    Eric Galin is Professor of Computer Science at the University Lumière Lyon 1, France. He received an engeneering degree from Ecole Centrale de Lyon in 1993 and a PhD in Computer Science from Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 in 1997. He was the head of Gamagora, a high level education program combining Level Design, Graphics Design and Computer Game Programming tracks from 2008 to 2013. This educational program benefits from the synergy of industry veterans, CNRS researchers and the sponsorship of the Pôle de Compétitivité Imaginove (Région Rhône Alpes).

    His research interests include procedural modeling of virtual worlds, simulating natural phenomena and modeling with implicit surfaces. In collaboration with Brian Wyvill, his research in implicit surface modeling came to the development of a hierarchical modeling system (the Hybrid Tree) which combines implicit surfaces and triangle meshes in a coherent and unified system. In the last eight years, work has centred around procedural modeling of virtual worlds and the Arches modeling system. This framework is a vehicle for experimenting with new modeling and procedural generation methods.

    Eric Galin was the organizer and co-chair of the Eurographics Workshop on Natural Phenomena (Dublin 2005, Vienna 2006, Prague 2007, Munich 2009) and Shape Modeling International (Lyon 2007) and Eurographics 2017 (Lyon). He served in several program committees of Eurographics, Pacific Graphics and Shape Modeling International. He participated in the creation of the French Chapter of Eurographics in 2003, president in 2006-2009 and vice president 2015-2017.
