Willem F. Bronsvoort received the MSc degree in computer science from the University of Groningen in 1978, and the PhD degree from Delft University of Technology in 1990. He is an associate professor CAD/CAM with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. His main research area is feature modeling, in particular, semantic feature modeling, multiple-view feature modeling, freeform feature modeling, and mesh generation from feature models. He has published numerous papers in international journals, books, and conference proceedings, is on the editorial board of several journals, and has served as cochair and member of many program committees of conferences.
Jens Gravesen received the Cand. Scient. degree (MSc) in mathematics and physics from the Universty of Copenhagen in 1980 and the D.Phil. degree from the University of Oxford in 1988. He is an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics, Technical University of Denmark. His research area is geometric modelling, in particular, representations that facilitate exact calculations. He has published numerous papers in international journals, books, and conference proceedings, has served as program officer for SIAM's activity group on geometric design, and is one of the organizers of the yearly European Study Group with Industry in Denmark.
John Keyser received the BS degrees in applied math, engineering physics, and computer science from Abilene Christian University in 1994, and the PhD degree in computer science from the University of North Carolina in 2000. He is an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University. His research has spanned a range of topics broadly categorized as graphics, with particular focus on robust geometric computation, physically-based simulation, and reconstruction and visualization from volume data. He has published in several journal and conference venues, and currently serves as a member of the Solid Modeling Association executive committee.
