Frits Post was an Associate Professor of Computer Science
(computer graphics) at Delft University of Technology;
he retired in July 2011. He started working in computer
graphics in the 1970s, when he studied Industrial Design
Engineering at Delft University of Technology. For his
graduation project in the Ergonomics Group (1979), he
developed the Anthropometric Design Assessment Program
System (ADAPS), an interactive 3D graphics system for
workspace design, which has been used and developed
further until this very day. In 1982 he moved from Industrial Design Engineering to Computer Science, where he became associate professor in 1987. In 1989 he started research in scientific visualization.The last two decades he and his students and co-workers have produced many new methods and techniques for visualization. He has been very successful in attracting bright students and guiding them. In the nineties his main topic was flow visualization, where he and his students studied visualization of turbulent flow, particle and texture-based visualization, selective visualization, feature extraction and tracking, and comparative visualization. In the late nineties
he became interested in the use of virtual reality techniques for visualization. With his students he developed novel techniques for 3D interaction and exploration of large data sets using a virtual workbench. He also started work on
medical visualization, leading to a steady stream of results
on volume rendering, virtual endoscopy, computer-aided
diagnosis and surgery planning. Most recently, he has
worked on very large data handling techniques, interactive
visual data analysis, atmospheric physics applications, and
geospatial visualization. He has co-authored more than
120 papers, many in top journals such as IEEE TVCG, IEEE
CG&A, Computer Graphics Forum, The Visual Computer, and
for conferences such as IEEE Visualization and VisWeek,
EG/IEEE EuroVis, the EG Virtual Environments Symposium,
ACM VRST, and MICCAI, and he has edited several volumes
of conference proceedings and collections of research papers.Frits has played a central role in the development and organization of the field, and has been active both in the European and in the US visualization communities. On
the European side, he has been an elected member of the
Eurographics Executive Committee and Vice Chairman.
He was also a chair of the Working Group on Visualization
in Scientific Computing until June 2011. He has been
member and chair of numerous program committees of
Eurographics conferences and workshops and of several
best paper award committees. In the US, he was a member
of the Executive Committee of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Graphics from 1995
to 2000; he has been a member of the papers committees
and organizing committees of several IEEE Visualization
conferences and symposia, and also organized and presented
several tutorials and state-of-the-art reviews, co-organized
Dagstuhl seminars; he has been an Associate Editor of IEEE
Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, ACM
Transactions on Graphics, and Computer Graphics Forum.
Frits was one of the pioneers in promoting visualization
research in Europe. In 1991 he organized the second,
highly successful European Workshop on Visualization in
Scientific Computing in Delft, following up on the first one,
held in Paris in April 1990. Frits made a major contribution
in fostering strong relations between Eurographics and
the IEEE Computer Society Visualization and Graphics
Technical Committee. This led to the joint Eurographics/
IEEE Symposium on Scientific Visualization held in Vienna in
May 1999, which developed later into the highly successful
annual EuroVis symposia. EuroVis is currently a vibrant event of which proceedings appear as a special issue of Computer Graphics Forum journal, and Frits has made important contributions to its success. A final highlight was his keynote presentation at Eurographics 2011, in which he shared his vision of the field of data visualization and described generic developments. He was recently awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Eurographics Association in recognition of his contributions to the field of visualization.
