Scenoptique (12/2012 - 03/2014)

Participant : Rémi Ronfard.

In October 2011, we started a collaboration with Theatre des Celestins in Lyon on the topic of interactive editing of rehearsals. This research program is funded by the Region Rhone Alpes as part of their CIBLE project, with a budget for a doctoral thesis (Vineet Gandhi) and three large sensor video cameras. Theatre des Celestins is interested in novel tools for capturing, editing and browsing video recordings of their rehearsals, with applications in reviewing and simulating staging decisions. We are interested in building such tools as a direct application and test of our computational model of film editing, and also for building the world's first publicly available video resource on the creative process of theatre rehearsal. Using state-of-the-art video analysis methods, this corpus is expected to be useful in our future work on procedural animation of virtual actors and narrative design. The corpus is also expected to be shared with the LEAR team as a test bed for video-based action recognition.

Labex Persyval

Participants : Rémi Ronfard, Olivier Palombi, Armelle Bauer.

We received a doctoral grant from LABEX PERSYVAL, as part of the research program on authoring augmented reality (AAR) for PhD student Adela Barbelescu. Her thesis is entitled directing virtual actors by imitation and mutual interaction - technological and cognitive challenges. Her advisors are Rémi Ronfard and Gérard Bailly (GIPSA-LAB).

Additionally, this project funds the PhD thesis of Armelle Bauer which has started in October, co-advised by François Faure, Olivier Palombi, and Jocelyne Troccaz from TIMC-GMCAO. The goal is to tackle the scientific challenges of visualizing one's self anatomy in motion using Augmented Reality techniques.

TAPIOCA, Persyval Grant (11/2013 - 11/2015)

Participants : Damien Rohmer, Jean-Claude Léon, Marie-Paule Cani.

Tapioca (Tangibilité Physiologique Instrumentée: Outil mixte redimensionnable pour la conception d'artefact) is a projet exploratoire of the Persyval Grant. This project aim to study the use of resizable interactive interface to ease the generation of virtual models. This project is in collaboration with LIG, Gipsa-lab and GSCOP.
