3D Modeling and Shape Analysis
In this seminar, we will cover topics from Shape Modelling (i.e. 3D shape creation and design by a user) and Shape Analysis (i.e. the extraction of more abstract information from a collection of 3D shapes). Since Shape Analysis requires there to be a set of 3D shapes for pattern extraction and intuitive Shape Modelling operations often require data-driven feedback, these two topics have a synergistic relationship. For Shape Modelling, we will discuss new interaction concepts and techniques that allow modeling objects and shapes in more intuitive and meaningful ways. In the context of Shape Analysis, we will cover a range of possible shape representations (with their individual benefits and disadvantages) for expressive machine learning techniques such as neural networks.

The grade will be calculated as follows:
- Written Paper: 50%
- Presentation: 50%
To pass the course, you need to attend all presentations.
All submissions have to be sent to the supervisor until 12:00 (noon) via mail. Include the tag [PDUI] and the name of the topic and the milestone (e.g., „[Seminar] Explainable AI, Report Outline“).
Literature Review & Outline
Prepare 7+ topic-related research papers with a 30-word contribution and benefits statement stating the contribution type. Provide a clear structure for the final paper submission. What is the storyline you want to convey? How are you introducing the topic? What are the arguments you are providing? How are you connecting the papers to each other and your arguments? Include your papers into this structure.
Camera-Ready Presentation Slides
The complete version of your presentation slides (Powerpoint, Keynote, Prezi, ….). Hand in slides which you would confidently use for a presentation on the next day.
You present in front of your fellow students and your supervisor. We expect a well-prepared presentation. Test your talk at least once in the room where you are going to present to familiarise yourself with the equipment, and test your slides on the projector in the room. Presentation time will be 20 minutes, followed by a 10-minute discussion where you will receive feedback and questions from your supervisor and your peers. We encourage a constructive feedback interaction where you can learn from each other and have a friendly conversation on how to improve your presentation style.
First Paper Submission
Your paper submission should contain 10 content pages in the ACM CHI template . We expect you to submit a final version without spelling mistakes, with a clear flow of argumentation, a complete bibliography, and including all figures.
After your presentation, we will meet to give you feedback on your paper submission.
Final Paper Submission
Your paper rebuttal submission should contain 10 content pages in the provided template. We expect you to submit a final version without spelling mistakes, with a clear flow of argumentation, a complete bibliography, and including all figures.
