Papers We Love is a forum for to anyone read and discuss Computer Science papers. The papers (or links to them, depending on what kind of license they are published under), are stored on the Papers We Love GitHub repo. The repo includes a large graphics section. The San Francisco chapter (Papers We Love Too), has monthly meetups at the Fastly HQ in SOMA. Each event features a main talk which covers one paper in-depth, it also features two short mini-talks of about 5-7 minutes.
I'll be presenting a mini-talk about James Kajiya's incredibly important computer graphics paper, The Rendering Equation in February 2015, as an taster of a full talk on it I'll be doing later in the year. I will put the slides for both talks and a link to the video on this blog.
