The Significant New Researcher Award
The Significant New Researcher Award is awarded annually to a researcher
who has made a recent significant contribution to the field of computer
graphics and is new to the field. The intent is to recognize people
who, though early in their careers, have already made a notable contribution.
The Significant New Researcher Award has been presented to Paul Debevec, Steven J. Gortler,
Mathieu Desbrun, and Zoran Popović.
The scope of the areas of accomplishment for award recipients encompasses
both theory and application including, but not limited to, works of
art, development of algorithms, hardware design, and innovative application
of computer graphics. These awards, however, are not intended solely
to recognize service to SIGGRAPH.
