Graphics Seminar: Fall 2006

Computer graphics is a truly wide-ranging discipline, encompassing areas as diverse as animation, physics, 3D scanning & modeling, digital imaging & video, user-interface technologies, art, and design. In this seminar, we will look at a wide range of these subjects as we review and critique the ongoing cutting-edge research projects taking place at University of Washington.

If you have any interest at all in graphics, please come and join us! You do not need to be currently doing research in graphics. Indeed, new students in particular are encouraged to attend.

Instructors: Brian Curless, Zoran Popović & David Salesin
Time: Fridays 3:00-4:00
Place: GRAIL (CSE 291)
