Die Übungen zu den Vorlesungen “Interaktive Visualisierung skalarer Daten” und “Computergraphik 1” beginnen erst in der KW43 ab 21.10.2013.

Interessenten an einer Teilnahme am Proseminar, Hauptseminar oder Forschungsseminar Visualisierung werden gebeten sich bis spätestens 20.10.2013 per Email bei Jun.-Prof. Rosenthal zu melden.

Bachelor Defense

Last week, Martin Schulze has successfully defended his Bachelor thesis with the title “A Hierarchical Structure for Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics Simulation Data”, which significantly contributes to our DFG project “SmoothViz: Visualization of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics Simulation Data”.

Enercloud at WSCG 2013

enercloud-cleanedThis year we are happy to announce that two papers from the Enercloud project got accepted to WSCG 2013, the 21st International Conference on Computer Graphics, Visualization and Computer Vision. Thomas Kanzok and Christian Günther will present their papers with the titles “Efficient Removal of Inconsistencies in Large Multi-Scan Point Clouds” and “A GPGPU-based Pipeline for Accelerated Rendering of Point Clouds” next week in Plzen.

VisRuption at EuroVis 2013

visruption-deskNext week at EuroVis in Leipzig we finally present the results of our very successful collaboration with Lufthansa Systems AG. During the last two years we have analyzed the work of airline operations controllers at several airlines and have now come up with the tailored visualization tool VisRuption for the display of airline operations data which significantly outperforms the current state of the art. Thanks also to the cooperating airlines and to our partners from the department of cognitive science.

Bachelor Defenses

In the last weeks, we had a set of three bachelor defenses which where the first ones for the group. The authors and titles were:

  • Lukas Jürschick – Segmentierung des Spinalkanals unter Benutzung Statistical Shape Models aus MRT-Daten und Implementierung in MeVisLab
  • Falk Süß – Automatische Nachbearbeitung von registrierten Punktwolken aus 3D-Scans unter Berücksichtigung geometrischer und temporaler Randbedingungen
  • Christian Günther – Interactive Rendering of Point Clouds on General Purpose Graphics Processing Units Using OpenCL

We congratulate all students and hope for a good further collaboration.

Lehrveranstaltungen SS2013

Die Übungen/Praktika zu den Vorlesungen “Computergraphik 2” und “Interaktive Visualisierung nichtskalarer Daten” starten erst in der 16 Kalenderwoche ab 15.04. Zum Praktikum “Interaktive Visualisierung nichtskalarer Daten” findet am 10.04. in der Vorlesung eine obligatorische Vorbesprechung statt.

Die jeweiligen Skripte und Lehrmaterialien finden Sie auf der Homepage der Professur.

Alle Interessenten am Proseminar Visualisierung oder einem Seminar in dem Bereich melden sich bitte per E-Mail bis spätestens zum 26.04.2013 bei Jun.-Prof. Rosenthal.

EuroRV3 2013 Call for Papers

As promised in Vienna, EuroRV³ the EuroVis Workshop on Reproducibility, Verification, and Validation in Visualization continues and will be even more exciting in 2013. This year we will have a special focus on Human-centered Visualization, see the call for papers for more details. Besides we still solicit contributions on recent and future developments related to the reproducibility of newly developed visualization approaches, the verification of visualization and data-processing systems, the validation of visualization paradigms, and the effective incorporation of each of these into modern visualizations. This year’s workshop invites short papers (4 pages without references, 5 pages including references) and panel proposals (2 pages). The submission deadline is March 8, 2013. All accepted papers will be published in the Eurographics Digital Library and selected papers will be published in a special issue of Computing and Visualization in Science.

All those who unfortunately missed last year’s event can still catch up with the electronic proceedings including slides and videos.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

The whole team of the Visual Computing Laboratory wishes all collaborators and friends a Merry Christmas and a good start into the New Year. The last year was full of new projects and steady growth of our group. We all are happy about the new challenges and collaborations which we hope to master in the upcoming year.
