SPIFF Reading Group

Spiff is a group for discussing interesting papers about simulating physics, with an emphasis on physics-based animation. We study papers from venues such as SIGGRAPH and the Journal of Computational Physics, but also occasionally members will present reviews of relevant subjects.

Location: X530
