The increased availability and performance of mobile graphics terminals, including smartphones and tablets with high resolution screens and powerful GPUs, combined with the increased availability of high-speed mobile data connections, is opening the door to a variety of networked graphics applications. In this world, native apps or mobile sites coexist to reach the goal of providing us access to a wealth of multimedia information while we are on the move.

This half-day tutorial provides a technical introduction to the mobile graphics world spanning the hardware-software spectrum, and explores the state of the art and key advances in specific application domains, including capture and acquisition, real-time high-quality 3D rendering and interactive exploration.
