[July 3, 2013] The revised grades after the retake exam are available on the grading page. This concludes the course for this year. [June 27, 2013] The grades for the practical assignment are available on the grading page, and therefore are also available the final grades for the course. The detailed grading of your practical assignment can be reviewed in my office this coming Monday (7/1). The retake written exam will be held on Wednesday July 3, from 9:00 to 12:00 in BBL-001. The grade obtained from the retake replaces the previous written exam grade only if it's better. It means that if you already passed the course but you would like to improve your grade you can attend the retake with no risk. If you indeed want to attend while already have passed the course please let me know about it beforehand. If you want to attend the retake while you have failed, you do not have to let me know, just show up at the right time and location. Let me thank you all for your participation in the course. I hope you enjoyed it. As it was the first year in this form, there are certainly many points to improve, so do not hesitate to fill in the online evaluation questionnaire (you should have received an invitation about it today) or give your opinion by email. Finally if you are interested in doing a small project or a MSc project in the area of game physics, physics-based animation or simulation, you are welcome to contact me. [June 17, 2013] The grades for the literature study are available on the grading page. On Wednesday is a non mandatory session. In the first part we will correct exercises 5, 7 and 13 from the written exam (good idea to attend if you expect to have to do the retake), followed by an informal Q&A session about the practical assignment. You can prepare questions you would like to ask (to me or to other students). [June 12, 2013] In order to give more time to prepare for the retake (if needed), the retake exam will be moved to Wednesday July 3, from 9:00 to 12:00 in BBL-001. And the deadline for the practical assignment is moved to Wednesday June 26 at 18:00. If this is a problem for any of you, please let me know asap. The grades for the literature study will probably be published the day (or the day after) the last paper presentations. The grades for the practical assignment will probably be published by Friday June 28. [June 6, 2013] The time table for the practical assignment presentations has been published on the assignment page. Remember that on the same page you will find templates and guidelines to help you to prepare your report and presentation. Attendance to the presentation sessions is mandatory for everyone. The duration of each presentation has been slightly increased to 15 min. On Wednesday 19 June, in addition to the practical Q&A session, we will correct the exercises 5, 7 and 13 of the exam. [May 29, 2013] Today was the last lecture, next are the literature study presentations. The schedule of the presentations is available on the study page. Remember that the speakers have to send me their essay at least 24 hours before the sessions (so every Sunday and Tuesday mornings). The room for the presentations is the usual BBL-083, please make sure before your talk that your presentation is working fine (notably check that the movies play correctly). Let me remind you as well that by Friday each group for the practical assignment has to send me an email containing the names of each student and the intended list of tasks. [May 28, 2013] The grades for the written exam are available on the grading page. The copies can be reviewed during the next lecture. [May 23, 2013] A revised time table of the study presentations has been posted. Only five sessions will be necessary, so the last session on June 19 will be dedicated to a Q&A about the practical assignment. This is an optional session where you come if you have questions, if you want to discuss about technical issues with other groups or if you just want to have a space to work on the assignment during two hours. [May 15, 2013] The solutions to the exercises of lecture 8 are available on the curriculum page. Next session is dedicated to the written exam (on Monday May 27 from 9:00 to 12:00 in EDUC-BETA). Calculators and official formulas sheets are allowed and even advised (but bring your own). Phones, books, personal notes and computers are NOT allowed (so no calculator on a phone). [May 14, 2013] The time table for the literature study presentations has been published on the study page. Remember that on the same page you will find templates and guidelines to help you to prepare your essay and presentation. Attendance to the presentation sessions is mandatory for everyone. [May 13, 2013] If your literature study proposal is not listed at the end of the study page, please contact me asap. The solutions to the exercises of lecture 7 are available on the curriculum page. These exercises are good practice for the exam. If you need confirmation that the exercise 7.1 can be solved directly using the scaling factor of the magnitude of impulse j, I have prepared a second version of the solution to exercise 7.1. [May 8, 2013] The solutions to the exercises of lecture 6 are available on the curriculum page. [May 6, 2013] The solutions to the exercises of lecture 5 are available on the curriculum page. [May 1, 2013] The solutions to the exercises of lecture 4 are available on the curriculum page. Try to solve them before looking at the solutions. To avoid that multiple pairs of students propose the same literature study, I will publish on the study page the proposals that I have received and approved. Before submitting yours be sure that none of your three papers is already taken by another pair of students. [April 29, 2013] To give you enough time to prepare for the retake, the deadline to submit the practical assignment has been moved to Thursday June 27, at 12:00. The solutions to the exercises of lectures 1-2-3 are available on the curriculum page. Students who are still looking for partners are invited to contact the teacher asap. [April 26, 2013] As we will not have the time to correct every exercise during the lectures, the solutions (and not only the final answers) will be published on the curriculum page after each lecture. You are strongly encouraged to solve the exercises at home without the solutions first. [April 25, 2013] The curriculum has been updated to accomodate for the number of participants. We will have six study presentation sessions, and the assignment presentations are moved one week earlier. The retake exam has been moved from August to the exam week at the end of the period. The deadline for the submission of the assignment is unchanged (but now after the presentations). An new deadline has been added on May 31, by which you have to submit the list of the members of the team for the practical assignment, along with the tasks you plan to implement. If you haven't register for the course on Osiris yet, I urge you to do so asap. [April 24, 2013] If you have not found partners yet (either for the literature study or the practical assignment), during the lecture break on Monday, we will have a team making session. So please attend Monday's lecture if you want to find partners. [April 22, 2013] As expected, as the number of participants to the course is still growing, the number of sessions and the size of the groups have been modified. Now, the study has to be done by pairs of students and the practical assignment by groups of 4 to 5 students. The number of research paper presentation sessions (and therefore the dates for the assignment presentation sessions) will be indicated later this week (when the final number of participants will be known). [April 16, 2013] The content of the course and this website is now more or less definitive, some details will be defined when the final number of participants will be known (number of presentation sessions, size of the teams etc.). The first lecture will take place on Monday April 22, 2013 at 9:00 in BBL-083. [January 23, 2013] Creation of the webpage for the academic year 2012/2013. As the course is entirely revised this year, the content of the course and this website are still under construction. More information will be added regularly.
