This course will provide a broad overview of emerging technologies in visual computing and their impact in a variety of application domains. Students will be exposed to research in a breadth of topics spanning various disciplines involving visual computing. Each week, students will read papers in a particular area of visual computing, and discuss the contributions, limitations and interconnections between the papers. Students will also work on a research project during the course, culminating in a final presentation and written report. The course aims to provide practical experience in comprehending, analyzing and synthesizing research in visual computing.
After completing this course you will:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University.
