BYU's Thomas Sederberg to receive national honor in computer graphics

Thomas W. Sederberg, a professor of computer science at Brigham Young University, will receive the Computer Graphics Achievement Award during the 33rd annual ACM SIGGRAPH conference in Boston in August.

Sederberg, who is also an associate dean of the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, is nationally recognized as a pioneer and expert in computer graphics for his contributions to free-form deformation (FFD) and the use of algebraic geometry in geometric modeling. His work on a new technology called T-Splines allows artists and designers to add detail and merge models in previously impossible ways.

ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, is an educational and scientific society uniting the world’s computing educators, researchers and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field’s challenges. ACM SIGGRAPH is the foremost computer graphics association in the United States. Its Computer Graphics Achievement Award is the highest annual honor given in the computer graphics field.
