Many research areas (visualization, physical simulation, geometric modelling) or industrial productions (games, movies) require highly interactive graphical systems. In order to make application interactive one has to carefully design the underlying data structures, invent efficient algorithms to reduce the geometric complexity of 3D models, develop fast and accurate algorithms to compute the complex movements of rigid and/or deformable objects and supply highly parallel software solutions implemented on modern GPUs. Hence, the topics covered in this seminar are among the most interdisciplinary research fields in Computer Science.
The conferences with the strongest impact on the graphics world are SIGGRAPH, SIGGRAPH Asia, and Eurographics. In this seminar we will discuss results presented recently at those conferences with a focus on the most interesting and innovative ideas. Participating students have the chance to get familiar with stateoftheart solutions to problems in interactive Computer Graphics, Geometry Processing, Modeling, and Visualization and will gain interesting insights into the involved techniques.
