[Directions to our lab]
Most of the computer graphics research in the UT Austin CS department
is conducted by two major sub-groups, each with its own web page:
We also collaborate with the Texas Advanced Computer Center's visualization group.
Four computer sciences faculty have their primary research interest in computer graphics and visualization:
The graphics laboratory is located on the ground floor of the
ACES building, in room 2.102. Facilities include:
Our current facilities are primarily funded by industry sponsors,
including Microsoft, Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD.
