Abstract | This seminar covers advanced topics in computer graphics, such as modeling, rendering, animation, real-time graphics, physical simulation, and computational photography. Each time the course is offered, a collection of research papers is selected and each student presents one paper to the class and leads a discussion about the paper and related topics. | ||||

Objective | 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. | ||||

Content | This seminar covers advanced topics in computer graphics, including both seminal research papers as well as the latest research results. Each time the course is offered, a collection of research papers are selected covering topics such as modeling, rendering, animation, real-time graphics, physical simulation, and computational photography. Each student presents one paper to the class and leads a discussion about the paper and related topics. All students read the papers and participate in the discussion. | ||||

Lecture notes | no script | ||||

Literature | Individual research papers are selected each term. See http://graphics.ethz.ch/ for the current list. | ||||

Prerequisites / Notice | Prerequisites: The courses "Computer Graphics I and II" (GDV I & II) are recommended, but not mandatory. | ||||
