CGV Announcement of topics for bachelor and master theses in 2020/21: Slides, videos, and Webex Q&A sessions
With the new winter semester coming up, we are announcing current topics for Bachelor and Master theses in the areas of Computer Graphics, Geometry Processing and Visual Analytics, supported by the Institute of Compute Graphics and Knowledge Visualization together with Fraunhofer Austria. We have published the slides and videos on the topics, as offered from our supervisors.
We will also host a live question and answer session on Friday, October 09, 11-12am on Webex. Each supervisor will be available in her/his conference room. Both can be accessed (only from the TU Graz LAN/VPN) here.
If you have any questions, and wish to get in touch with the advisors of the topics, please feel free to join the Webex session, or contact the advisors directly via the contact information in the videos and slides.
