    Optimization - An Emerging Tool in Computer Graphics

Course Organizer(s):



    Optimization techniques are increasingly used to solve problems in image rendering, object modeling, animation, and even chart graphics. Does this presage an important new development in computer graphics? Panelists survey the impact of optimization in their areas of expertise, describe the various optimization techniques that have proven useful for graphics problems, and attempt to predict what this trend means for,­ members of the SIGGRAPH community: researchers, engineers, and artists.
