Seminar 'Advanced Methods on Computer Graphics' - SS11 - Home


Description Description | Administration | Organization and Grading | Links | Schedule | Seminar Papers

Course Topics

This seminar covers advanced topics in computer graphics, including both seminal research papers as well as the latest research results. Topics include data-driven modeling and animation, image based rendering, real-time graphics, physical simulation and generative models, visual perception, computational photography, video synthesis, and others.

Course Setup

Every participant has to present one of the papers in the list below. Additionally, you are required to read the paper that is presented in class beforehand and participate in a discussion during the seminar. An assistant will provide support when preparing the slides and in case technical questions arise.

Learning Objectives

The goal is to get an in-depth understanding of actual problems and research topics in the field of computer graphics as well as improve presentations and critical analysis skills.

Prerequisites

The "Visual Computing" and "Introduction to Computer Graphics" are recommended, but not mandatory.

Presence

Presence is mandatory to pass the seminar. If a student can not attend a seminar session, the reason (e.g. medical certificate) has to be given before the session and must be accepted by one of the organizers. More than three missed seminar sessions will cause the student to fail this class. The dates for the presentations can not be moved except there is someone willing to switch. The students participation in the group discussions will be documented by the organizers and contributes 25% to the final grade.
