Snoeyink recognized with IEEE SciVis Test of Time Award

Jack SnoeyinkProfessor Jack Snoeyink received the IEEE Scientific Visualization (SciVis) Test of Time Award for his work on the paper, “Simplifying Flexible Isosurfaces Using Local Geometric Measures,” which was published in 2004.

The paper, authored by Hamish Carr, Snoeyink, and Michiel van de Panne, was recognized by IEEE SciVis as the “most vibrant and influential paper published at the conference in 2004.” Test of Time Awards are presented to the papers that are “most relevant today, having had major impact and influence within and beyond the visualization community.”

The paper defined local geometric measures and an algorithm that could be used to simplify the computation of contour trees and allow users to explore individual contours of a dataset interactively.

Snoeyink and his collaborators from the University of British Columbia were honored in an award presentation at the 2019 IEEE Visualization Conference (VIS) in Vancouver, Canada on October 22, 2019.
