Web Technologies Internetworked 3D Computer Graphics:
Overcoming Bottlenecks and Supporting Collaboration
                   Course Notes
level 4
An introduction to networking concepts and issues for using and developing interactive and collaborative Internet-based graphics applications. Real-time demonstrations and case studies of collaborative remote design projects were highlighted and summarized during the entire course. Speakers also discussed how the SIGGRAPH community is affected by (and can likewise influence) Internet Engineering Task Force standards, the ACM Special Interest Group on Communications, the Web3D Consortium, the World Wide Web Consortium, and other Internet-related organizations.

Prerequisites
An introductory course on the fundamentals of computer graphics. Some prior experience creating computer graphics content or a 3D application. Familiarity with computer graphics primitives.

Topics
The six components of internetworked 3D graphics. The realities of implementing internetworked 3D graphics. The basics of the Internet Protocol. Fundamentals of collaborative 3D graphics applications and how they relate to Internet Engineering Task Force standards. Human-computer interaction issues and a taxonomy for distributed 3D graphics applications.
