Tue., 10:45 - 12:00,  02.13.010




Computer Graphics or Game Physics or Visualization, Proseminar



In this course, students will autonomously investigate recent research from the SIGGRAPH and IEEE VIS conference - the most renowned journals and conferences in the computer graphics and scientific visualization areas. Independent investigation for further reading, as well as a critical analysis and evaluation of the topic are required. Finally, the attendants have to present their results in a talk which should last 40-45 minutes. Talks will be given in English. Supplementary, a short written workout (approximately 4-6 pages) should be prepared.
