Successful Start of Eurostars Project “enercloud”

In April 2012 the enertec engineering ag, the Visualization and Computer Graphics Laboratory at Jacobs University, and the Visual Computing Laboratory at Chemnitz University of Technology started the joint project “enercloud: Instantaneous Visual Inspection of High-resolution Engineering Construction Scans”. The project is funded by EUREKA eurostars and the work on the Chemnitz’ side of the project will be carried out by Thomas Kanzok.

The first success of the project was already achieved with the publication of the paper “On-the-fly Luminance Correction for Rendering of Inconsistently Lit Point Clouds” in the Journal of WSCG 2012. We are looking forward to a further close and fruitful collaboration with our Swiss and German partners.

DFG Project “SmoothViz: Visualization of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics Simulation Data”

With the beginning of May the successful DFG project “SmoothViz: Visualization of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics Simulation Data” was prolongated and will be carried out in cooperation between the Visualization and Computer Graphics Lab of Lars Linsen in Bremen and the Visual Computing Lab of Paul Rosenthal in Chemnitz. The work on the Chemnitz’ side of the project will be done by Jonathan Fischer and we are looking forward to a close and fruitful collaboration.

DFG Research Training Group “Connecting Virtual and Real Social Worlds”

With the beginning of April a new DFG Research Training Group was established at Chemnitz University of Technology which is closely connected to the interdisciplinary competence center “Virtual Humans” and entitled “Connecting Virtual and Real Social Worlds”. The interdisciplinary group of 12 PhD students will deal with the challenges rising from the steady increase in digitization and virtualization and its social consequences. The Visual Computing Lab welcomes the new member Michael Heidt as part of the Research Training Group and we are looking forward to the exciting field between social and computer sciences.

Research Position in Visualization at Visual Computing Lab in Chemnitz

Again there is one open position available at the Visual Computing Laboratory, part of the Department of Computer Science at Chemnitz University of Technology. The (50% E13 TV-L) position is best suited for a PhD-student and at first limited to two years. As part of the DFG-project “SmoothViz: Visualization of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics Simulation Data” the position will be in close collaboration with the Visualization and Computer Graphics Laboratory at Jacobs University in Bremen. Knowledge in the fields of visualization, computer graphics, and GPU programming is beneficial.

Applications should preferably be sent via email to Jun.-Prof. Dr. Paul Rosenthal at latest till 10.04.2012. Please feel also free to ask any questions via email.

An der Juniorprofessur Visual Computing der Fakultät für Informatik ist im DFG-Projekt “SmoothViz: Visualization of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics Simulation Data” zum nächstmöglichen Termin eine halbe Drittmittelstelle zunächst befristet für zwei Jahre als Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin/Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter (50%; Entgeltgruppe E 13 TV-L) zu besetzen. Es handelt sich um ein Projekt in Zusammenarbeit mit der Jacobs University in Bremen.

Das Projekt verfolgt das Ziel die Arbeiten des bereits seit drei Jahren sehr erfolgreich laufenden Projektes für die Visualisierung von SPH Daten weiterzuführen. Dazu gehört das interaktive Verarbeiten von massiven SPH-Datensätzen und neue Visualisierungsmethoden für unstrukturierte Daten. Insofern sind Kenntnisse in den Bereichen Visualisierung, Computergrafik und parallele Programmierung (GPU) von Vorteil.

Bewerbungen mit den üblichen Unterlagen, vorzugsweise als PDF-Dokument per Email, werden bis zum 10.04.2012 erbeten an Jun.-Prof. Dr. Paul Rosenthal. Weitere Informationen!

ESF Early-Stage Researcher Group “The Smart Virtual Worker”

The members of the interdisciplinary competence center “Virtual Humans” have successfully applied for an ESF early-stage researcher group. The group consists of eight PhD-students and is entitled “The Smart Virtual Worker”. From 01.01.2012 till 31.12.2014 the members will develop new methods for the simulation of virtual workers and factories to effectively overcome the problems of todays aging mankind. The Visual Computing Group will be represented by Walentin Heft, who will be dealing with world modeling and visualization.

Research Positions at Visual Computing Lab in Chemnitz

There are two full research positions (E 13 TV-L) for three years available at the Visual Computing Laboratory (http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/informatik/vcl/), part of the Department of Computer Science at Chemnitz University of Technology.

The first position should be filled as soon as possible and can be filled by a phd-student or post-doc. The position is integrated into the interdisciplinary competence center “Virtual Humans” (http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/forschung/virtual_humans/). Topics of the research will be the modeling of smart virtual workers and the visualization of multidimensional ergonomic measures related to their work. Applicants have to hold a computer-science related Master or Diploma degree.

The second position suited for a phd-student is part of the interdisciplinary research training group “CrossWorlds – Connecting Virtual and Real Social Worlds” (http://crossworlds.info/) which will start from 01.04.2012 on. Topics of the research will be related to the study of new ways of interaction and communication which are offered by the connection of virtual and real social worlds in comparison with the experience of immediate real interaction and communication. Applicants have to hold a computer-science related Master or Diploma degree.

For more information about the positions contact Paul Rosenthal (https://www.paul-rosenthal.de/?page_id=72). Applications should be preferably sent via email including the usual documents.
