Title: Shape Control & Designing Objects

Abstract: Designing of objects is a significant area of study and practice in the digital world today. In addition to its critical importance in the traditional fields of automobile, aircraft manufacturing, shipbuilding, shoe industry, and general product design, more recently, the digital designing methods have also proven to be indispensable in a variety of modern industries, including robotics, medical imaging, visualization, Textile, Fashion, Painting, Art, and even media and many others.

This presentation aims to provide and enlighten on past, present and future of digital design. Specific concentration would be made on designing by shape control which plays a significant role in modelling objects to desired level. The talk is going to focus on interdisciplinary methods and affiliate research in the area. It aims to provide the audience with a variety of designing techniques, applications and examples necessary for various real life problems. The major goal of the talk is to stimulate views and provide a source where researchers and practitioners can find the latest developments in the field of digital design.

The talk may specifically be of interest to people in the industries or academic fields including Computer Graphics, Computer Aided Geometric Design, Computer Vision, Image Processing, Virtual Reality, Information Visualization, Body Simulation, Engineering Disciplines, Mathematical Sciences, Font Industry, Art & Design, Film industry, Software Industry, Manufacturing Industry. It may also lead to applications like vector graphics, digitization of hand-drawn shapes, computer supported cartooning, pattern recognition, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD), and various other applications.
