Research Projects of François X. Sillion

This page presents a very terse description of my research activities and interests. More information is available by following the links on the images. I encourage you to contact me if you want more details about these themes (

Light transfer in participating media and clustering techniques

Development of a unified model for the simulation of radiant energy transfer between surfaces and volumes.
Hierarchical algorithms for lighting simulation

Development of new control mechanisms for hierarchical lighting simulation
Interactive visualization of complex scenes using hybrid 3D and image-based models

Development of new algorithms allowing near real-time display of complex environments such as urban models, combining 3D information and image-based "impostors".
