Prof. Daniel Cohen-Or
I am a Professor at the Department of Computer Science. I received a B.Sc. cum laude in both Mathematics and Computer Science (1985), a M.Sc. cum laude in Computer Science (1986) from Ben-Gurion University, and a Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science (1991) at State University of New York at Stony Brook.
My research interests are in Computer Graphics, Visual Computing and Geometric Modeling and including rendering and modeling techniques, Shape Analysis, Shape Creation and Editing, 3D Reconstruction, Photo Processing, compression and streaming techniques, visibility, point set representation, morphing and volume graphics.
I was on the editorial board
of several international
journals including CGF, IEEE TVCG, The Visual Computer and ACM TOG, and regularly serve as a member of
program committees of international conferences. Between 1996-8 I
served as the
Chairman of the Central Israel
SIGGRAPH Chapter. I
have a rich
record of industrial collaboration. In 1992—93, I developed a
flythrough with Tiltan
Ltd. and IBM Israel for the
Israeli Air Force. During 1994--95 I worked on the development of a new
parallel architecture at Terra Ltd. In 1996--1997 I have been working
with MedSim Ltd. on the
development of an ultrasound simulator. I am the inventor of RichFX,
technologies. I was
the recipient of the
Outstanding Technical Contributions award in 2005.
In 2013 I've received The People's Republic of China Friendship Award.
In 2015 I've edited the book "A Sampler of Useful Computational Tools for Applied Geometry, Computer Graphics, and Image Processing".
