CoGIP: A Course on 2D Computer Graphics and Image Processing
Wednesday, 10 - 10:30 am
Room 502B

Computer graphics is an important discipline, and it is present in almost every undergraduate computer science curriculum. Image processing is also essential to creating graphical content. 2D computer graphics and image processing have strong theoretical relationships, but in typical computer graphics courses, they are only briefly presented.

This paper proposes a course on these two discipline. Such a course is of practical interest for content creation, for acquisition of images, and for reproduction of content in different media In addition to describing the course, the paper identifies theoretical and practical relationships between computer graphics and image processing. It identifies the benefits and drawbacks of adding such a course in an undergraduate curriculum and relates the proposed course to topics that could be part of advanced courses. Finally, it covers practical concerns such as a software framework for assignments and how to cover the main aspects in specific assignment topics.
