Computer Graphics Laboratory ETH Zurich


PhD Seminar - SS 18

Course Topics and Objectives

In this doctoral seminar, current research at the Institute for Visual Computing will be presented and discussed. The goal is to learn about current research projects at our institute, to strengthen our expertise in the field, to provide a platform where research challenges can be discussed, and also to practice scientific presentations.

Course Setup

The seminar takes place in the spring and autumn semester.


This course requires solid knowledge in the area of Computer Graphics and Computer Vision as well as state-of-the-art research.

Performance assessment

Ungraded semester performance. Presence is mandatory (75% of the seminar talks, i.e., 9 out of 12) to pass the seminar. Presence is formally controlled. Every participant has to present his/her research once a year.
