CS 448C - Appearance Models for Computer Graphics and Vision
Each student will be expected to scribe (i.e. generate typeset lecture notes
for) one of the technical lectures.
Lecture notes should be typeset with LaTeX, using the following template:
If you are not familiar with LaTeX,
a good source of information are the Web pages of the TeX Users Group .
- lect00.tex - Start with this file,
and add your notes to it.
- handout.cls - A support file
needed by lect00.tex.
The most common way to include drawings in your text is to
produce Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) files using a drawing
program. The programs available include:
EPS files are included in LaTeX documents using the
graphics package included in most LaTeX2e
- xfig (or idraw) on most UNIX systems,
- showcase on SGI systems,
- MacDraw on most Macs,
- Adobe Illustrator on Mac's
and PC's (including the Mac in the graphics lab).
Submitting your notes
We would like to hand out lecture notes the week after the lecture is given.
In order to make this possible, please try to have the notes completed one or
two days before the following lecture. This includes getting feedback
from the designated student reviewer and making any necessary corrections.
When both of you are satisfied, send email
to the TA with either
The lecturer might request further changes to the notes. The
final version of the notes will be distributed to the class, and
also made available on the course web page (with your name on it).
- a note pointing to the directory containing your notes, if you have an
account on the Stanford Graphics Lab machines.
- the notes themselves, otherwise.
You can do this with the following command:
tar cvf - my_lecture_notes/* | gzip > notes#.tar.gz
mail -s "lecture notes #" firstname.lastname@example.org < notes#.tar.gz
Please submit only the .tex file containing your lecture notes and
the Postscript files for your figures; remove .dvi, .log,
.blg and .aux files as well as the final Postscript output
before sending us the files.
To give you an idea of the style of the notes that we expect,
here are the scribed lecture
notes from a previous incarnation of CS448.
