Seminar: Parallel Visual Computing

Seminar: Parallel Visual Computing (Winter Semester 2012/2013)

Ivo Ihrke     Tobias Ritschel     Mario Fritz


This seminar covers the hands-on use of parallel hardware (GPUs) for visual computing, i.e.,

The target audience are students in computer science or related fields. Good C++ programming skills, basic knowledge about 3D geometry, image processing, and computer graphics are required. This seminar will be based on hands-on parallel programming:
