The topic will be:

  NVidia's Cg Shader Language
  presented by: Gabe Rosa

    Accelerated 3D video cards which were programmable have been available for
    a few years now, but were underused because of the complexity of writing
    card-dependent assembly language programs and the limitations on the cards

    Cg, NVidia's high level shader language makes writing shaders easy by
    providing a C-like compilable language that is easy to understand.
    With newer generations of cards and a common interface between the
    programmer and the hardware, virtually limitless special effects like
    glossy bump mapping, one-bounce raytracing, refractive surfaces,
    displacement mapping, etc., can be achieved in real-time and with
    little effort from the programmer.
