About

Our division focusses on three main topics: Rendering and Modeling, Virtual and Augmented Reality, and Visualization.

In Rendering, we research the synthesis of realistic or non-photorealistic images depicting 3D models or scenes by simulating or approximating the physics of light. In Modeling, we concentrate on methods and algorithms that facilitate the creation, representation, analysis and processing of 3D models. In particular, we work on advances in real-time rendering, computer games, real-time visualization of urban environments, point-based rendering, reconstruction of urban models, procedural modeling, shape modeling,

In Virtual and Augmented Reality, basic and application oriented research happens in a wide range of fields associated with VR/AR. AR, VR and Mixed Reality technologies in general are used in different industries - manufacturing, entertainment, medicine, research - for various applications such as training, education, visualization, therapy, rehabilitation, gaming or cultural heritage. We focus on walking in large scale Virtual Reality (“Holodeck”) and its applications, on haptic interaction as well as on Augmented Reality applications.

Visualization uses computer-supported, interactive, visual representations of (abstract) data to amplify cognition. It typically incorporates automatic and interactive data analysis and synthesis in decision making scenarios where the human expert is kept in the loop. We perform basic and applied research projects in all areas of visualization. Examples include biological data visualization, medical visualization, information visualization and visual analytics, perception in visualization, and visualization in the material sciences.

Computer Graphics is part of the faculty’s Institute of Visual Computing and Human-Centered Technology.
