CSCI-6962 Advanced Computer Graphics, Fall 2005
Here's your opportunity to explore an additional topic not covered in
the previous assignments. Hopefully you can connect what you've
learned to your research area or other interests. The scope of your
assignment should be carefully defined so that it can be successfully
completed in about a month.
As you choose your topic and begin to flesh out the details, keep in
mind that implementing new data structures or algorithms can take much
longer than anticipated. Also be warned that designing and
implementing even relatively simple user interfaces require alot of
effort (and is not particularly relevant to this course).
Your proposal should be plaintext (with optional supporting
images) or pdf. The document should include:
- A brief summary (~200 words) of the technical problem you are
going to investigate.
- A list of the specific papers or other sources you've collected
for background reading.
- A timeline for your assignment with a list of the tasks you will
execute. It's ok to list optional tasks that you will work on once
the core features are functional.
The proposal is due Nov 3rd. I'll read your proposals them over the
weekend and give you feedback by the end of the day on Monday,
November 7th. If necessary, I'll ask you to revise and resubmit your
Your final report should be plaintext (with supporting images and/or
animations) or pdf. The report document should be roughly 1000 words
and describe the technical details of your assignment. In particular,
we want to know about:
Make sure to acknowledge any references you consulted to complete the
assignment and the extent of any collaboration with other students or
outside sources. As with the other assignments, submit your source
code, a linux or windows executable, and any necessary data files.
- Any algorithms or data structures you implemented,
- The core features of your assignment and how you tested them,
- The challenges that you overcame (or failed to overcome),
- Any known bugs or limitations in your implementation, and
- How long it took you to complete the assignment.
Final Project Presentation
On the last day of class everyone have approximately 20 minutes to
present their final project to the class. More details will follow.
