A look back at "GIG Days", with support from Aix-Marseille Université's TIGER project!

Illsutration GIG Days TIGER

The second edition of "GIG Days" took place on March 25-26-27, still led by the GIG (Geometry and Computer Graphics) course of the "Computer Science" master's degree (UFR Sciences). Following the success of the first edition, which took place in June 2023, these days were once again funded by the TIGER project (Transform and Innovate in Graduate Education with Research), winner of the France 2030 investment program.

Over the course of 3 days, students from the GIG master's program were able to take part in a graphics programming "hackathon" on issues linked to digital building models (BIM). The aim was to find characteristic shapes in 3D point clouds (from downtown Marseille and the Luminy campus), all in less than 72 hours, with a final presentation, prize-giving and gala evening. 

A unique feature of this year's event was that the GIG Days were held in conjunction with a national conference on computer graphics and geometric modeling: the R-GTMG 2024. This was a unique opportunity for students to attend the conference in its entirety, meet young researchers and former students, as well as companies. These encounters enabled many constructive networking exchanges, putting a different light on the world of computer graphics research.
