报告题目：Generalizable Neural Rendering for Novel View Synthesis
Synthesizing photo-realistic images and videos is a long-standing problem in computer vision and graphics. Recently, neural rendering (neural scene representations) has gained great popularity, showing state-of-the-art performance for view synthesis. However, most of them are scene-specific (i.e., must be optimized for each new scene), which limits their real-world applications. In this talk, I will first give a high-level introduction about several recent neural rendering methods for view synthesis of static scenes, and then introduce our work on generalizable neural rendering called IBRNet. IBRNet combines ideas from classical image-based rendering with recent progress on neural rendering, and can be applied to new scenes for high quality view synthesis without per scene optimization.
Qianqian Wang is a fourth year PhD student at Cornell University advised by Prof. Noah Snavely. Her research interests lie at the intersection of 3D computer vision, computer graphics and machine learning. She is particularly interested in image-based rendering, neural rendering and 3D reconstruction. Before starting her PhD in 2018, she received her bachelors degree in Information Engineering at Zhejiang University.

报告题目：Introducing Dense Correspondence to Implicit 3D Shape Representation
Implicit neural representations have shown promising results for reconstructing complex 3D shapes with topology variations. However, they often lack the ability to build dense correspondence between shapes which is essential for shape modeling and manipulation. We hope to find a better representation that can achieve both accurate surface reconstruction as well as dense correspondence reasoning for a shape category. In this talk, I will present a recent work of us that tries to solve this problem.
Yu Deng is a 5th year joint Ph.D. student of Tsinghua University and Microsoft Research Asia, under the supervision of Prof. Harry Shum. He is currently working as a research intern in visual computing group in MSRA. His research interest includes 3D reconstruction, 3D representation learning, and neural rendering. He has published several papers on CVPR during his Ph.D. study. He also received his B.S. degree from Tsinghua University.
