How the Smithsonian and USC Institute for Creative Technologies worked together to create the first-ever 3D presidential portrait.
In his 2013 State of the Union address, President Obama made room in his speech to talk about a subject that some may have found an odd choice for a presidential address: 3D printing. His comments on 3D printing were positive, noting that the technology "has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything." A little over a year later, President Obama's prediction was proven true -- and in a rather personal way.
The Spring Simulation Multi-Conference 2014 (SpringSim'14) brings leading experts in various domains of Modeling and Simulation together. The Theory of Modeling and Simulation (TMS/DEVS 2014) will be a sub-conference of SpringSim.
The following symposia are organized under SpringSim'14:
The purpose of the 4th International Conference on Simulation and Modeling Methodologies, Technologies and Applications (SIMULTECH) is to bring together researchers, engineers, applied mathematicians and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of system simulation.

Somewhere between "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within" (2001) and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008), digital actors evolved from talking dolls to lifelike human beings. Today, computer-generated actors are often so realistic that audiences have trouble distinguishing live performers from digital fabrications. How did such a monumental improvement in the realism of CG humans happen over such a short period of time?
This conference is sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Geometric Design and in cooperation with ACM SIGGRAPH, incorporating the 2013 SIAM Conference on Geometric Design and the 2013 Symposium on Solid and Physical Modeling.
The Shape Modeling International (SMI) conference provides an international forum for the dissemination of new mathematical theories and computational techniques for modeling, simulating and processing digital representations of shapes. Its target audience is the community of researchers, developers, students, and practitioners addressing these topics across a wide range of fields.
Design and modeling are concepts and activities common to several disciplines in Science, Education, and Technology. Consequently, design and modeling provide effective concepts, theories, methodologies, and tools for intra- and inter-disciplinary communications. The World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics: WMSCI might provide synergic relationships with a conference on Design and Modeling, and vice versa.
The purpose of the International Conference on Model-Driven Engineering and Software Development, MODELSWARD 2014, is to provide a platform for researchers, engineers, academicians as well as industrial professionals from all over the world to present their research results and development activities in using models and model driven engineering techniques for Software Development. Model-Driven Development (MDD) is an approach to the development of IT systems in which models take a central role, not only for analysis of these systems but also for their construction.
This event is co-located with SIGGRAPH 2013, and co-sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH and Eurographics.
