Adobe Research at SIGGRAPH 2023

August 6, 2023

Tags: AI & Machine Learning, Conferences, Graphics (2D & 3D)

The paper MesoGen offers a workflow for designing rich mesostructures, with self-similarity but no repetition artifacts. The method is based on Wang tiling to enable fast authoring and efficient real-time rendering. 

Adobe has co-authored 33 papers that will be presented this year at SIGGRAPH 2023, the premier academic conference in computer graphics and interactive techniques.

Adobe’s scientists and engineers have also contributed to the conference by giving technical talks, facilitating the review process as part of the Technical Papers Committee, and serving as tertiary reviewers and Conflict of Interest (COI) coordinators. Our researchers have also chaired sessions and organized and participated in various programs.  

Many of Adobe’s co-authored papers are the result of past internships and collaborations with university students and faculty. We are currently hiring for full-time positions. Please check out the Adobe Research Careers page to learn more.
