Studies Master Informatics
Time, Place Tuesdays, 10:30-12:00, Seminar room: MI  02.13.010 
Begin Tuesday April 21., 2020


In this course, students will autonomously investigate recent research about 3D Scanning & Motion Capturing. Independent investigation for further reading, critical analysis, and evaluation of the topic are required. Each participant has to give a talk about a paper of the top tier conferences in this field (SIGGRAPH, SIGGRAPH ASIA, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ...). In addition to the talk we ask for a summary of the paper (minimum 2 pages).

The talks have to cover the following topics:

  • face tracking / reconstruction
  • facial reenactment (audio driven, video driven animation)
  • body tracking / reconstruction
  • hand tracking
  • static / dynamic scene reconstruction
  • scene understanding
  • inverse rendering, material estimation, light estimation


  • The participants have to present their results in a talk, which should last 30 minutes.
  • The semi-final slides (PDF) should be sent one week before the talk; otherwise, the talk will be canceled.
  • A short report (approximately 2-3 pages in the ACM SIGGRAPH TOG format (acmtog)) should be prepared and sent within two weeks after the talk.
  • When you send the report, please send the final slides (PDF) together.
