Main Talk

Gareth Morgan (https://www.blogger.com/profile/13353208602533882282) on The Rendering Equation ( http://www.cs.rpi.edu/~cutler/classes/advancedgraphics/S08/lectures/kajiya.pdf ). From Gareth: "This paper is one of the most important 3D graphics papers in the subject's history. The rendering equation put forth by James Kajiya is the foundation of many of the rendering techniques used in modern graphics. Anytime a computer generates physically accurate image it is actually attempting to solve the rendering equation"

Meeting mechanics

Doors open at 6:30 pm; the presentation will begin at 7:00 pm; and, yes, there will be food.

After the paper is presented, we will open up the floor for discussion and questions then we will head over to the bar (http://www.yelp.co.uk/biz/zekes-diamond-bar-san-francisco?osq=zeke%27s+sports+bar)!
