Welcome to CS559

Dear Students,

Welcome to CS559 “Introduction to Computer Graphics”. This web page (along with our online Piazza forum) will be your portal for all announcements related to the class, information about class logistics, and repository of lecture notes and supplemental information.

To get started, make sure to check out the Syllabus page for the most important general class information (including grading and administrative logistics), and the Calendar for a time-indexed view of topics and important special scheduling notices.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON IN-PERSON vs. REMOTE ATTENDANCE: As detailed in this Piazza post only one-third of the enrolled students will be allowed to attend in-person lectures in each day that the class meets. See the Calendar for a time-indexed view of which subset of the class is allowed to attend in person. All others (including waitlisted students) should attend remotely, via live-stream or by viewing the recorded lectures asynchronously (again, read this post).

UPDATE : ALL IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FROM SEPTEMBER 10-25, AS REFLECTED IN THE CLASS CALENDAR.

You will be getting information on reading materials as we go, but if you want to prefetch some information that will definitely be useful, take a look at the following tutorials/discussions:

That should be a good starting point! Please keep track of the posted deadlines for assignments (via Canvas; postings on this forum and/or Piazza will also be made to announce rollout of assignments). Also, make sure to verify you have access to the Piazza and Canvas pages (see the Syllabus page). Have a great start to your semester and enjoy the class!
