He is a member of ACM, ACM SIGGRAPH, IEEE Computer Society and Eurographics. Dr. Pajarola's research interests include real-time 3D graphics, multiresolution modeling, point based graphics, interactive large-scae scientific visualization, remote and parallel rendering, compression and interactive 3D multimedia. He has published a wide range of internationally peer-reviewed research articles in top journals and conferences. Dr. Pajarola regularly serves on program committees, such as for example the IEEE Visualization Conference (2004-06), Pacific Graphics (2002-03,07-08), IEEE Pacific Visualization (2008-09) or EuroVis (2001,2006-09). He was papers co-chair of the 2007 and 2008 IEEE/Eurographics Symposium on Point-Based Computer Graphics.
