Adobe Research at UIST 2021

October 11, 2021

In this UIST 2021 paper, the authors present a method for automatically rigging a character illustration so that accessory layers (such as hair and clothing) deform when the underlying body layer is deformed. 

The ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST) is the premier forum for innovations in human-computer interfaces, and includes research from diverse areas including tangible and ubiquitous computing, extended reality, multimedia, and new input and output devices. This year, the conference is being held virtually from October 10 to 13, 2021, and Adobe is a Silver Sponsor.

There are five Adobe co-authored papers at UIST this year. Adobe researchers have also contributed to the conference in many other ways, including serving on the program committee, serving on the organizing committee, and reviewing papers. In addition, several former Adobe Research interns served on the program committee and organizing committee. 

Many of the accepted papers are the outcome of research internships. For those interested, please check out the Adobe Research Careers website to learn more about internships and full-time career opportunities
