             abstract = "Most direct manipulation tasks rely on precise placements of the 
                         cursor on the object of interest. Commonly, this requires the 
                         knowledge of distinct application-dependent geometry attributes of 
                         this object computed on the CPU. In this work, we present a simple 
                         yet general GPU-based framework for computing such attributes 
                         without depending on application-specific algorithms. In 
                         particular, it provides, for each pixel of the rendered model, 
                         elements of discrete differential geometry that require only the 
                         vertex data and 1-ring connectivity of each vertex stored in video 
                         memory. We validate our framework by showing how, only by 
                         providing correct mouse placements even when the geometry is 
                         modified on GPU, it can support the implementation of many direct 
                         manipulation tasks presented on the literature. Implementation 
                         results are presented.",
