Your submission must be committed to the Subversion repository by 13:00 (CEST), correcting and grading takes place during the course on the day of the deadline!
Attendance of the course (Lab time) is mandatory at the submission day of each submission.
The review of the submission includes a discussion with one of the supervisors (see "Grading and Certificate" below).


The results of the fifth assignment will be presented in the VIS-Lab (Room 0.452) at the end of the term. In the audience there will be the participants, their supervisors, and presumably many members of the Visualization Department. There will be the possibility to socialize with future supervisors of student research projects and diploma theses.

Grading and Certificate

For each assignment you will receive up to 20 points, so there is a total of 100 points to achieve. To get a certificate you have to reach at least 60 points. In assignment 1-4 at least 9 points must be reached, and 14 points for the last assignment. The assignments have to be handed in at the given dates and times. Solutions handed in too late or not compiling on the computers of the Lab without errors cannot be graded. Warnings during compile time lead to deduction of points. The grading takes place directly after the deadline in attandance of the students. The achieved number of points is mailed to you afterward. Additional functionality which is suitable to the assignment and exceeds the given task can be awarded with up to 2 extra points.

Termine: Montag, 13:00 - 14:00 Uhr in 0.452
