Computer Graphics Club
More about the Computer Graphics Club
|1. Definition, goal|
The Computer Graphics Club (CGC) is intended to offer a small number of highly motivated and carefully selected students the possibility of enjoying a close and mutually beneficial relationship with the Institute of Computer Graphics and Algorithms.
Members of the Computer Graphics Club are offered the opportunity to learn about the way an institute works. This includes organization, lecturing, and scientific work. There is contact between CGC and the institute on a regular basis. Members of the CGC are expected to attend the advanced Computer Graphics lectures offered by the institute. Thereby, CGC members become experienced in Computer Graphics, and, consequently, are embedded within the scientific work at the institute. Special seminars, e.g., the research seminar and the Central European Seminar on Computer Graphics (CESCG), and invited talks (the Colloquy Cycle, for instance) are also important opportunities for the CGC. The CGC is limited to 12 members.
On the other hand the institute also benefits of running the Computer Graphics Club. In addition to the above mentioned participation, a little organizational help is expected from CGC members, e.g., help for invited lecturers, PR jobs, help with the organization of exams, etc.
Finally, membership in the Computer Graphics Club should enable students to get a good start in everyday work after finishing their study. Both the membership directly as well as the gained additional experience helps with this respect. Of course, members of the CGC have rather good chances when applying for open scientific positions at the institute.
To become member of the CGC, you have to fulfill the following criteria:
If the above mentioned conditions are fulfilled, you can contact Reinhold Preiner. The Nanny will inform you of further details and invite you to the next CGC meeting and the next KV in order to give you the opportunity to see, whether you like to become a member of the CGC or not. After internal discussion a formal application can be handed in and you are invited to present yourself in the KV.
Usually membership terminates after finishing the master's thesis. Though, some members don't want to lose contact to the club, so it is possible to change state from an active member to a graduated member. A graduated member can attend meetings and events but is not actively involved in decisions concerning the CGClub.
Members can terminate their membership at any time. On the other hand, the institute can terminate the membership in the CGC without giving any reasons.
