Best Paper Award from ACM SIGGRAPH Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics and Games

7 Jun 2023

A research paper titled “NeRFahedron: A Primitive for Animatable Neural Rendering with Interactive Speed” has been awarded the Best Paper Award at the ACM SIGGRAPH Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics and Games (i3D 2023). This paper was the outcome of the collaboration between Dr Hong Va LEONG, our associate professor and associate head, Dr Peter NG, our assistant professor, and Dr Zackary SIN, our research assistant professor.


Neural rendering is a hot topic in computer graphics injecting machine learning techniques into classical rendering pipelines. It has been shown to be able to produce photo-realistic results that mirror scenes in reality. An issue, however, is that previous approaches have limitations in speed or animation. This paper proposes a novel neural rendering primitive, NeRFahedron, that can enable animatable content for neural rendering in real-time. It is believed that this work can lay the groundwork for deploying neural rendering to interactive applications like VR apps and games. It is expected to be beneficial for rendering photo-realistic environments for the metaverse in the future as well. Read the paper here.


SIGGRAPH i3D is a leading conference that brings together researchers and practitioners working on real-time 3D computer graphics and human interaction. The conference provides a platform for presenting and discussing new research results, techniques, and applications related to interactive 3D graphics, games, and virtual environments.
