AMoRe Meetings

These meetings are for holding talks and to discuss current papers in the areas of Animation, Modeling and Rendering. The meeting consists of a technical presentation in the first half of the meeting and then a discussion of a particular paper led by a host in the second half. The meetings are held in X 736 (meeting room) on Mondays, at 3:00PM-4:00PM. Everyone is welcome.
