Kuwait Univer­sity pro­fes­sor gives pre­sen­ta­tion on com­puter graph­ics

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

KUWAIT: Muham­mad Sar­fraz from the Depart­ment of In­for­ma­tion Science at Kuwait Univer­sity’s Col­lege of Com­put­ing Sciences and En­gi­neer­ing gave a pre­sen­ta­tion re­cently on com­puter graph­ics (CG). It iden­ti­fied the field of com­puter graph­ics as a sig­nif­i­cant area of study and prac­tice in the world of com­put­ing to­day. In ad­di­tion to its crit­i­cal im­por­tance in the tra­di­tional fields of au­to­mo­bile, air­craft man­u­fac­tur­ing, ship­build­ing, shoe in­dus­try, and gen­eral prod­uct de­sign, more re­cently, com­puter graph­ics have proven to be in­dis­pens­able in a va­ri­ety of modern in­dus­tries, in­clud­ing robotics, med­i­cal imag­ing, vi­su­al­iza­tion, Tex­tile, Fash­ion, Paint­ing, Art, Arche­ol­ogy, Games and even me­dia and many oth­ers.

The pre­sen­ta­tion aimed to ex­plain the tool of splin­ing for graph­ics de­sign. Spe­cific con­cen­tra­tion was made on a new spline ap­proach which is qua­dratic in na­ture but acts like a cu­bic as far as geo­met­ric fea­tures are con­cerned. The talk fo­cused on in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary meth­ods and af­fil­i­ate re­search in the area. Shape con­trol and de­sign was the main area to fo­cus in the pre­sen­ta­tion. Fur­ther­more, the pre­sen­ta­tion pro­vided the au­di­ence with a va­ri­ety of tech­niques, ap­pli­ca­tions and ex­am­ples nec­es­sary for var­i­ous real-life prob­lems. The ma­jor goal of the talk was to stim­u­late views and pro­vide a source where re­searchers and prac­ti­tion­ers can find the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in the field.

Muham­mad Sar­fraz is a Pro­fes­sor and Vice Dean of Re­search and Grad­u­ate Stud­ies in Kuwait Univer­sity, Kuwait. He re­ceived his PhD from Brunel Univer­sity, UK, in 1990. His re­search in­ter­ests in­clude com­puter graph­ics, CAD/CAM, pat­tern recog­ni­tion, com­puter vi­sion, im­age pro­cess­ing, and soft com­put­ing. He is cur­rently work­ing on var­i­ous projects re­lated to academia and in­dus­try.

Sar­fraz has been key­note and in­vited speaker at var­i­ous plat­forms around the globe. He has ad­vised and su­per­vised more than 55 stu­dents for their MSc and PhD th­e­ses. He has pub­lished around 300 pub­li­ca­tions in the form of var­i­ous Books, Book Chap­ters, jour­nal pa­pers and con­fer­ence pa­pers.

Sar­fraz is mem­ber of var­i­ous pro­fes­sional so­ci­eties in­clud­ing IEEE, ACM, IVS, IACSIT, and ISOSS. He is a Chair, mem­ber of the In­ter­na­tional Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tees and Or­ga­niz­ing Com­mit­tees of var­i­ous in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ences, sym­po­siums and work­shops. He is the re­viewer, for many in­ter­na­tional Jour­nals, Con­fer­ences, meet­ings, and work­shops around the world. He is ed­i­tor and guest ed­i­tor of var­i­ous in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence pro­ceed­ings, books, and jour­nals. He has achieved a va­ri­ety of awards in ed­u­ca­tion, re­search, and ad­min­is­tra­tive ser­vices.
