SmoothSketch: 3D Free-Form Shapes From Complex Sketches
A system for inferring plausible 3D free-form shapes from contour drawings. The drawings, unlike previous approaches, can be complex and contain cusps and T-junctions, and the resulting surfaces can have arbitrary topology.

Interactive Decal Compositing With Discrete Exponential Maps
Interactive texturing of animated implicit surfaces and point sets is made possible using a local parameterization technique based on a simple addition to Dijsktra's algorithm.
