CAD'14 Draws International Experts
Nearly 100 Computer-Aided Design (CAD) experts from over 15 countries gathered at HKUST in the summer of 2014 to exchange ideas and discuss the future direction of the industry. The International CAD Conference and Exhibition 2014 (CAD’14) sought to forge greater connections between those in CAD research, education and business. Prof Ajay Joneja, Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management, served as host co-chair of the conference.
At the opening ceremony, Prof Fugee Tsung, Head of Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management, welcomed the delegates to HKUST. The four keynote speakers were Prof Yong Chen, University of Southern California (3D printing/additive manufacturing), Prof Shuming Gao, Zhejiang University (CAD model retrieval), Prof Kunwoo Lee, Seoul National University (digital human modeling), and Prof Jianmin Zheng, Nanyang Technological University (T-splines). Topics in the paper sessions included geometric modeling, sketch-based design and shape editing, computational geometry applications and architectural design, providing further valuable insight into the latest developments in the field.
