1:15 - 3:00 pm Education Panel: Teaching 3D Graphics
By looking at the historical evolution of education in Interactive 3D Graphics and at the current situation and new initiatives, the panelists will identify the trends and objectives of this rapidly evolving and constantly expanding discipline. An open floor discussion on the I3DG curriculum will focus on striking the right balance between the usage of high level tools and standards and the understanding of their detailed implementation; between the fundamental mathematical principles and the techniques that push the limits of current generation systems; between theory and hands-on implementation; between geometry-based and image-based rendering, between physically correct images and artistic effects; between virtual reality and abstract navigation metaphors; between accuracy and performance.
