Schedule: Tue, 10:40 - 11:40, SW1 (Malá Strana)
Organized by: Jaroslav Křivánek
Prerequisites: Computer Graphics I (NPGR003) or general knowledge of / interest in computer graphics

This seminar is open to anybody interested in computer graphics. Colleagues and students from the Computer Graphics Group present their research projects, discuss future research plans, refer about interesting advances in computer graphics related disciplines or rehearse conference presentations. The goal is to keep us informed about the recent advances in the field and about the work of the computer graphics group.

The presentation topics vary from semester to semester but mostly revolve around realistic and predictive image synthesis, real-time rendering, processing and rendering of medical data (on GPU), graphics hardware, GPU programming, image processing.

Everybody is welcome to attend the seminar. Students that enroll and wish to receive credit should attend the seminar on a regular basis and make a 30-40 minute presentation on a topic in line with the focus of the seminar (the topic should be approved by the seminar organiser). Depending on the audience, the seminar is held in Czech or in English.
