Proseminar: Visual Computing, Winter Semester 2016/17

Visual Computing spans a wide range of topics covering Computer Graphics, Visualization, and other image-centered disciplines in computer science. Within this seminar, we will explore these fields, whereby each participant will prepare and present one topic chosen from these areas.


The seminar is held as a block event at the end of the semester, while the topics will be assigned at the beginning of the semester. Each participant prepares a report in English or German (English preferred), and gives a 20 minute presentation in German or English (English preferred) during the block event. Furthermore, all participants will be involved in the reviewing process of their peer's papers. The papers are improved based on the feedback resulting from the review process.

All deadlines are strict deadlines, and no extensions will be granted.

Dates for plenary meetings are discussed at the first meeting to suit individual schedules.
