Course Information and NEWS

IMPORTANT!!! The meeting room for initial meeting has been updated!!!

Due to some implementation issues, we decided to move our scientific working seminar from Option A to Option B. In other words, we will decide all the student enrollment after our initial meeting (also see TUWEL (opened for initial registration)). This year, due to the capacity of room and supervision resources, we aim to accept max. 20 students.

In the initial meeting, we will introduce the seminar topic this semester and provide students the opportunity to ask questions regarding the seminar. The students are expected to be enthusiastic about the visualization and computer graphics topics, and should be active sufficiently to contact their supervisors.

The selection process will be conducted on 11.10.2019, so the student need to register yourself until 23:59 on 10.10.2019 on TUWEL.
If there are more than 20 students registered, a selection process will be performed through
(1) the completion of "visualization" and "computer graphics" lectures, and
(2) the grade of the above two lectures.
We will put the final list on TUWEL on 11.10.2019.

If you are NOT registering the "scientific working" seminar, the above constraints are not applied. Please contact us or register directly. We are sorry for this inconvenience and please send us a message through TUWEL or email if you have further questions.

Slides from the initial meeting can be found here.
