Research and development in the area of computer graphics is progressing rapidly. New techniques allow to create more and more detailed, efficient and exact visualizations with a computer and thus become essential for the areas of scientific visualization and virtual prototyping, in the entertainment industry in the context of games of movies, and in many other areas.

In this seminar, such state-of-the-art topics from the area of computer graphics are discussed. Participants are supposed to study recent approaches to a specific problem (based on one or multiple publications) and to give a talk on this topic. For each topic, one staff member of the computer graphics group will - together with Prof. Klein - supervise the participant. The talks usually take place at the end of the lecture period as a block course. For many of the offered topics, the seminar can also be combined with a lab course on the same topic.
