McGill Paper Wins Lumiere Prize

News

Congratulations to Jonathan Bouchard, McGill PhD student and his supervisor Professor James Clark.  Their paper “Half-Occluded Regions: The Key to Detecting a Diverse Array of Defects in S3D Imagery” won the best paper prize at the IC3D 2017 Conference in December 2017, and was awarded the Lumiere Prize at the Conference Gala. The trophy is almost like winning the Oscars - it is generally awarded for excellence in 3D/VR film-making.  The paper was based on research done in collaboration with a local video effects company, Digital District Canada.
