News / Information

An introduction will be given on October 17, 2013 in room MI 02.13.010,
16:00-17:30. Topics will be assigned after the introduction.

This seminar will be held as a block course on two days at the end of the winter term (January 24 and 27, 2014). We offer a total of 14 spots for undergraduate (Seminar) and graduate (Master-Seminar) students.

The seminar will be held in German language.

Contents

The main purpose of this seminar is to introduce the basics of visual data analysis techniques. We will discuss topics including volume rendering, flow visualization, uncertainty visualization and real-time techniques, and explore their usage in various application areas including the visualization of medical or geoscientific data.

To sucessfully participate in this seminar, the attendants have to prepare a talk of about 45 minutes. Talks will be held in German. Supplementary, a write-up (6 pages) has to be prepared. For preparation of the talks, independent investigation for further reading is required.

Available Topics

Topics will be discussed during the first meeting.

ACM Digital Library

The TUM has an account at the ACM digital library which hosts some of the most important conferences on Computer Graphics. To access it, proceed as follows:

  • Configure your browser to use proxy.informatik.tu-muenchen.de at port 8080.
  • Read the three bullets below, then browse to  ACM Digital Library.
  • Make sure you see "HeBIS: TU Muenchen" witten in the logo, and not "Technische Universitaet Muenchen".
  • Now you can search for papers, topics etc. They are hosted in pdf format.
  • It might be necessary to perform the above procedure from within the TU web.
