Course Topics

This seminar covers advanced topics in computer graphics and vision, including both seminal research papers as well as the latest research results. Topics include data-driven modeling and animation, image based rendering, real-time vision & graphics, physical simulation and generative models, visual perception, computational photography, video synthesis, and others.

Course Setup

Every participant has to present one of the papers in the list below. Additionally, you are required to read the paper that is presented in class beforehand and participate in a discussion during the seminar. An assistant will provide support when preparing the slides and in case technical questions arise.

Learning Objectives

The goal is to get an in-depth understanding of actual problems and research topics in the field of computer graphics and vision as well as improve presentations and critical analysis skills.


The "Visual Computing", "Introduction to computer graphics" and "Computer Vision I" courses are recommended, but not mandatory.
