The British Film Institute on London’s Southbank will host the 13th annual Conference on Visual Media Production (CVMP) on December 12th/13th. The CVMP conference has established itself as the leading venue for researchers to meet with practitioners in the Creative Industries: film, broadcast and games.
The conference aims to bring together expertise in video processing, computer vision, computer graphics, animation and physical simulation. Keynote speakers this year will include:
- Michael Black, Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems
- Diego Gutierrez, University of Zaragoza
- Dan Winn, YouTube VR
- Mark Ardington, Double Negative Visual Effects
Conferences like CVMP highlight the leading role British Engineering has within the Creative Industries.
Engineers have a huge impact on driving forward the technologies used in video games, broadcast and film.
Recent breakthroughs in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality made possible by computer-scientists are already transforming the ways film and games are made.
This leap forward in advanced technology is often referred to as the ‘Fourth industrial revolution’ and will be critical to the future of British Engineering. It will apply not just to the creative sector but manufacturing to medicine and everything in between.
