Keynote Announcement : Henrik Wann Jensen

Henrik Wann Jensen is well known for his work on realistic image synthesis, global illumination, rendering of natural phenomena, and appearance modeling. His contributions to computer graphics include the photon mapping algorithm for global illumination, and the first technique for efficiently simulating subsurface scattering in translucent materials.

Dr Jensen's keynote will be on "Simulating Natural Materials", and will provide a view of where the state of the art is currently at in natural material simulation, as well as where the current problems are and how he sees work in the area progressing.
