Graphics & Geometry Group

Hot Topics in Computer Graphics

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Mario Botsch
Seminar: Mon, 16-18, CITEC 1.314
eKVV: 392121
Credits: 3 points


In this seminar, which is mainly intended for PhD and Master students, we build on all the lectures offered by our group and discuss the latest state-of-the-art papers in Computer Graphics and Geometric Modeling.


We will discuss recent papers of ACM SIGGARPH, ACM SIGGRAPH Asia, Eurographics, SGP and other similar conferences.
