Course objectives
The participants of research seminar discuss classical and current research papers related to computer graphics. Students are expected to read relevant research papers, prepare and give presentations and to engage actively in discussion during seminar hours. They get acquainted with the contemporary computer graphics trends and improve their rhetorical skills.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students
- will be familiar with current trends in Computer Graphics research;
- will be able to prepare a sound presentation for CG professionals;
- will understand the broader context of traditional and new research topics in CG;
- will improve their rhetorical and presentation skills;
- will enhance their abilities to discuss non-trivial theoretical problems.
  • The study of classical and current research papers related to computer graphics. At the beginning of the semester, students are offered the selection of new research papers published at the high-rank conferences on computer graphics and related areas. The papers are selected from the latest conferences SIGGRAPH, SIGGRAPH Asia, EUROGRAPHICS or similar. Students chose a research paper and then they look up related "predecessor" paper. They prepare and give 2 presentations of research articles, predecessor paper followed by the latest paper. Students present the latest research advances and discuss them in a broad context.
  • ACM Digital Library: SIGGRAPH, Virtual Reality Conf.Proc.
Teaching methods
The seminar consists of student presentations. At the beginning of the semester, teacher proposes several main topics of current research and students assign the selected papers. Students prepare and give the presentations. The goal is to approach state of the art and estimate the unsolved areas. Students influence the seminar focus by theme selection.
Assessment methods
Colloquium assessment takes into account the quality of students presentations and the active participation in discussions.
