    Panel: Merging 3D Graphics and Imaging-Applications and Issues

Course Organizer(s):



    Computer graphics and image processing were once two very distinct disciplines, with different hardware, software, and users. Now they are becoming increasingly intertwined. Applications are being developed that use both 3D graphics and imaging techniques for a broad spectrum of uses, including realistic scene simulations, interesting visual effects, and improved analysis and understanding of complex information. What should graphics users learn from their imaging counterparts, and vice versa? This panel brings together people from both disciplines who have been developing a variety of applications that merge graphics and imaging technologies. They will illustrate both the benefits and the current limitations.
