MACeLot at IV

iv2015My new PhD student Linda Pfeiffer recently presented our paper about the current state of HCI in air trafic control with the title “A Survey of Visual and Interactive Methods for Air Traffic Control Data” at IV 2015 in Barcelona. This is basically the kick-off for our new BMBF-funded project MACeLot in cooperation with the German ATC company Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH, where we are trying to revolutionize the visualizations and interaction techniques used by air trafic controllers.

GRAPP Paper

grapp This Saturday I will give a talk at GRAPP in Berlin about our paper, which deals with “An Interactive Visualization System for Huge Architectural Laser Scans”. The main work was done by my PhD student Thomas Kanzok who cannot make it to the conference due to other working duties. Still we have even improved the approach since the paper was accepted and I can present some new promising results.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

All members of the Visual Computing Laboratory wish you, especially the collaborators and friends, a very Merry Christmas and a good start into the New Year 2015. We hope you can enjoy the holidays together with you families and relax for some time to gather new energy for the upcoming challenges. We are grateful for the many interesting discussions and research projects in the last year and are looking forward to several new projects in the new year.

Visit of Brian Fisher

brian fisher sfu From Monday on we had Brian Fisher from SFU as a guest at Technische Universität Chemnitz. His main focus was to visit our lab and the graduate research group CrossWorlds to discuss future collaboration possibilities. His visit was concluded today by a very inspiring talk about bridging the gap between between psychology and computer science.
