Visual computing research seminars

The VLunch meeting is a regular event to discuss research of interest to the Visual Computing Group.

Seminars will be held at 11:10 in Room S/3.21, Queen's Buildings (South).

All are welcome to attend. More seminars will be added to the list throughout the year so please check back regularly.
