Graphics and Geometry Seminar

Time and place: Tuesdays 1:00-2:00 PM, room 1221 (large conference room).

Contact: Olga Sorkine

Weekly meeting to present and discuss SIGGRAPH-type of research, i.e. core graphics, geometric modeling, computational photography, interactive techniques, NPR, etc. Each week one of the participants presents a paper or a whole topic. Take-out lunch together before the seminar in the small conference room.
