Faramarz F. Samavati is a Professor of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Calgary. His research interests include Computer Graphics, Geometric Modeling, Visualization, and 3D Imaging. Dr. Samavati has published over 90 technical papers in peer-reviewed journals and conferences, and a book on Sketch-based Modeling (Springer, Google books, Amazon). Dr. Samavati currently supervises a group of very good graduate students. He is a member of ACM and EG. He was the general co-chair of SBIM 2009 and the Graphics co-chair of Graphics Interface 2013. He was a program committee member of Eurographics 2013 and is now on the program committee of Expressive 2014. Currently, he is an Associate Editor of Computer & Graphics (Elsevier's journal), and a network investigator of GRAND NCE (Networks of Centres of Excellence of Canada in Graphics, Animation and New Media). Dr. Samavati currently holds several research grants: NSERC DG, NSERC CRD (with PYXIS Innovation), and GRAND NCE. Recently, one of his research works was selected and supported by GRAND NCE for commercial application through company creation. The developed software (GRSketch) received a Digital Alberta Award 2013.
