Discusses advanced concepts in the area of volumetric data modeling and visualization. Topics included are: Visual exploration of multi-variate and multi-dimensional datasets on regular and irregular grids, modeling of natural phenomena and simulation of realistic illumination, volumes as magic clay for sculpting and deformation effects, non-photorealistic rendering for illustration and artistic works, information-centric exploration of large datasets, and exploitation of hardware for acceleration. The course strives to provide a snapshot on the current state of the art and will be supported mostly by recent research papers. Students will expand on a topic of their choice by completing an individual project.
