I created a page for my MSc work at the CG&M website. Currently, it is a preliminary version, submitted for appreciation to my advisor, but the revised final version could be used to define the template for MsC's web pages. This page is available here. Any comments or suggestions will be appreciated.

Finally I found a solution for the weekly reports publishing problem. This solution was a compromise between sending these reports by e-mail to my advisor and publishing them in this blog. I created a new blog just for my weekly reports (in Portuguese).

Our paper titled "A Calligraphic Interface for Managing Agents" was accepted to be presented as as short communication at the 14th International Conferences in Central Europe on Computer Graphics, Visualization and Computer Vision (WSCG 2006). Now, we need to correct the abstract, according to reviewer's comments, until December 16th. Then, we need to produce a camera-ready version of the paper by January 3rd.

After a couple of months on the hold I restarted my work in the editION prototype. However, during this period of time I had updated the C++ compiler from VC++6.0 to VC++7.1. Thus, I needed to make a few changes in the prototype. The more mind-boggling task was related with socket communication. I could not understand, but exactly the same code that before works well, now doesn't. It only started to work well when I forced the system to wait for connection, blocking the GUI. Before it could go on normally and if after a given timeout, the connection could not be established, a error message was displayed.
We need to buy a new Tablet PC for our research group. Therefore, I made a short survey in leading brands: Toshiba, Acer and HP. In my humble opinion I think the best offer is the Acer Travelmate C200, but the final decision is not mine...
