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 in Sketch-based modeling (Springer, google books, Amazon). Faramarz Samavati currently supervises a group of very good graduate students. He is a Member of ACM and EG. He was general co-chair of SBIM2009, Graphics co-chair of Graphics Interface 2013 and a program committee member of SBIM 2012, CGI0212, and Eurographics 2013. 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). Prof. Samavati currently hold several research grants: NSERC DG, NSERC CRD, GRAND NCE, and PYXIS Innovation. 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.
