Master-Seminar - Recent Highlights in Computer Graphics and Data Visualization

Time, Place

First meeting: 12. July 2018, 4 pm, 02.13.010

Begin:

The talks will be early in January

Prerequisites:

Computer Graphics or Visualization, Proseminar

Registration:

Once you have been matched, select 3 topics in decreasing priority, and send your selection to me until 16 July 2018. 

Content

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 data 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.
