Invited Speakers

Keynote: Drew Berry

Drew Berry

Drew Berry is a biomedical animator who creates beautiful, accurate visualisations of the dramatic cellular and molecular action that is going on inside our bodies. Beginning his career as a cell biologist, his raw materials are technical reports, research data and models from scientific journals. As an artist he works as a translator, from abstract and complicated scientific concepts into vivid and meaningful visual journeys. Since 1995 he has been a biomedical animator at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Australia. His animations have exhibited at venues such as the Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, the Royal Institute of Great Britain and the University of Geneva. In 2010 he received a MacArthur Fellowship ''Genius Grant''.

Capstone: Daniel Sýkora

Daniel Sykora

Daniel Sýkora is an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Graphics and Interaction, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague where he also received his MS (2003) and Ph.D. (2007). He gained further research experience abroad at Trinity College Dublin, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and the University of Utah. Daniel's scientific career stems from his long-standing passion for traditional artistic techniques. He developed numerous algorithms that can eliminate repetitive and time-consuming tasks while still being able to preserve the uniqueness of handcrafted artwork and provide full creative freedom to the artist. Daniel and his team at CTU in Prague intensively cooperate with renowned industrial partners such as Adobe, Disney, or TVPaint Development. Some of the techniques they developed were already integrated into professional products and used in production. For his contribution, Daniel received numerous scientific awards including prestigious Günter Enderle Best Paper Award and The Neuron Award for Promising Young Scientists. More information about Daniel and his work can be found here.
