    Eric Galin is Professor of Computer Science at University Lyon 1, France. He received an engeneering degree from Ecole Centrale de Lyon in 1993 and a PhD in Computer Science from Université Lyon 1 in 1997.

    His research interests cover procedural modeling of virtual worlds, simulating natural phenomena and modeling with implicit surfaces. For the past decade, he contributed to a number of high level procedural methods for modeling terrains, generating road networks and villages, generating river networks and simulating the mutual influence between ecosystems and terrains.

    Eric Galin served in many program committees such as SMI, Eurographics and the series of Eurographics Workshop on Natural Phenomena. He was the co-chair of Eurographics 2017 conference in Lyon. In France, he participated to the creation of the French Chapter of Eurographics in 2004 and belongs to the CA. From 2008 to 2013, he was the head of Gamagora, a high level education program combining Level Design, Graphics Design and Computer Game Programming tracks.
