CS888 Winter 2005
We prefer for you to find your own papers to read and present, and you
will enjoy the work more if you do. On this page, you will find some
general advice about locating suitable papers, along with a short list
of papers that we offer for consideration.
Once you've narrowed your choices down to a few possibilities, send your
ideas to me (Craig) in an
email or stop by my office. Be sure also to include a few dates on which
you'd be willing to present. We'll make a final paper selection and
assign you a date.
How to find papers
The literature on 2D graphics is scattered around. Look through
recent conference proceedings (SIGGRAPH, Eurographics, Graphics interface,
NPAR) and journals (Transactions on Graphics, Journal of Graphics Tools)
for interesting papers with an emphasis on flatland. You could also
look at more focused conferences such as RIDT (Raster Imaging and Digital
Typography), InfoVis (IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization) or
EP (Electronic Publishing). Chasing references
back a few steps might help you locate a more fundamental paper from a
few years ago; older papers are probably acceptable for presentation.
Because some of the topics are not taught in our graphics course but
are nevertheless very useful, we may accept a presentation that's heavier
in introductory material taken from textbooks rather than papers.
