Congratulations to Professor Bedrich Benes on his election as Fellow of the European Association for Computer Graphics (Eurographics).

Benes has been elected Eurographics Fellow in recognition of his outstanding contributions to procedural modeling and simulation of natural phenomena, and his comprehensive service to the community and the Eurographics Association in particular.

Benes is a Professor of Computer Science at Purdue University. He received his Ph.D. from Czech Technical University in Prague in 1998. 

He is a senior member of ACM and IEEE and now a Fellow of the European Association for Computer Graphics (Eurographics). He is a member of seven Journal Editorial Boards, including Associate Editor of in Silico Plants (Oxford Academic), Associate Editor of Computer Graphics Forum (Willey), Associate Editor of Computers & Graphics (Elsevier), Associate Editor of Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds (Wiley), and Associate Editor of IEEE Computer Graphics Applications. Bedrich was Editor in Chief of Computer Graphics Forum (Willey) from 2018-to 2021.

Benes research is in generative methods for geometry synthesis, and his main focus is on procedural, inverse procedural modeling, simulation of natural phenomena, deep learning, and additive manufacturing. He has published over 170 research papers in the field. He has been sponsored by the National Science Foundation, NASA, Adobe Research, Intel, Siemens, Samsung, Department of Energy, and Ford Inc., among others. Benes is also a Purdue University faculty scholar.


About the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University
Founded in 1962, the Department of Computer Science was created to be an innovative base of knowledge in the emerging field of computing as the first degree-awarding program in the United States. The department continues to advance the computer science industry through research. US News & Reports ranks Purdue CS #20 and #18 overall in graduate and undergraduate programs respectively, ninth in both software engineering and cybersecurity, 13th in programming languages, 17th in computing systems, 22nd in theory, and 24th in artificial intelligence. Graduates of the program are able to solve complex and challenging problems in many fields. Our consistent success in an ever-changing landscape is reflected in the record undergraduate enrollment, increased faculty hiring, innovative research projects, and the creation of new academic programs. The increasing centrality of computer science in academic disciplines and society, and new research activities - centered around data science, artificial intelligence, programming languages, theoretical computer science, machine learning, and cybersecurity - are the future focus of the department. cs.purdue.edu
