Marie-Paule Cani is a Professor of Computer Science at Grenoble University (Grenoble Institute of Technology & Inria). Her research interests cover both Shape Modelling and Computer Animation. She contributed over the years to a number of high level models for shapes and motion such as implicit surfaces, multi-resolution physically-based animation and hybrid representations for real-time natural scenes and animated characters (skin, clothes and hair). Following a long lasting interest for virtual sculpture, she has been recently searching for more efficient ways to create static and animated 3D content such as combining sketch-based interfaces with procedural models expressing a priori knowledge. She received the Eurographics outstanding technical contributions award in 2011 and a silver medal from CNRS in 2012 for some of this work.
Marie-Paule Cani served in many program committees and in the steering committees of SCA, SBIM, SMI, and Eurographics, which she is currently chairing. She has been associate editor of Graphical Models, IEEE TVCG and CGF. She is currently associate editor of ACM Transactions on Graphics. She served in the executive committee of ACM SIGGRAPH from 2007 to 2011 and represented Computer Graphics in the ACM Publication Board from 2011 to 2014. In France, she belongs to the executive board of the GDR IG (Informatique Graphique) and to the CA of the French chapter of Eurographics. She has been Vice President of the Eurographics Association since January 2013.
