Room 156

Research and recent development in computer-generated illustration techniques within non-photorealistic rendering. The course concentrates specifically on illustration methods for computer-generated technical, scientific, medical, and interactive illustrations of both surface and volumetric data. It also presents the perspective of two medical illustrators on computerized illustration.

Prerequisites
Required: intermediate knowledge of 3D computer graphics and scientific visualization algorithms. Programming experience using a 3D library for interactive graphics and some awareness of existing NPR techniques may be helpful. Not required: prior knowledge of or background in artistic techniques, traditional scientific illustration, or perceptual psychology.

Intended Audience
Researchers and practitioners interested in non-photorealistic and illustrative rendering, visualizing and managing scientific data, and/or interactive medical and scientific applications of computer graphics.
