DNA replication of the lagging strand


Outstanding Technical Contributions Award 2023 – Michael Wimmer

Each year, Eurographics honors an accomplished individual in computer graphics to highlight outstanding technical achievement.


WHEN & WHERE: April 28 - May 2, 2023 - Smolenice Castle




The CESCG is a student seminar, but it is very similar to a scientific conference. For the participants it means:


We congratulate Peter Mindek for winning the Cover Image Contest at The Computer Graphics Forum 2023 with following topic:


This image shows a Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) molecule sliding along the DNA in a rotation-coupled translation manner. It is part of an animation explaining the process of DNA replication. It was rendered by Marion/Vj real-time molecular animation framework.


In WWTF’s 2022 Information and Communication Technology call, TWO out of nine winning projects (from TU Wien) were submitted by researchers from our computer graphics research unit.

The call was open to researchers from universities and non-university institutions in Vienna and Lower Austria with a funding range per project of 400,000 EUR – 880,000 EUR. The competition was extremely high: From the 67 submitted short proposals, 26 have been invited to the next stage to submit a full proposal. The funding volume for the nine winning projects amounts to over 6,000,000 EUR.


Dear friends & colleagues,

This year is a special year!

For the first time our annual X-Mas card comes to you digitally.

We send you our festive greetings.

A very merry Christmas to you all!

Your Computer Graphics Team,

We are happy to announce two recent awards at Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine (EG VCBM) 2022:

1) A Honorable Full Paper Mention for the work "MuSIC: Multi-Sequential Interactive Co-Registration for Cancer Imaging Data based on Segmentation Masks" by Tanja Eichner, Eric Mörth, Kari Wagner-Larsen, Njål Lura, Ingfrid Haldorsen, Eduard Gröller, Stefan Bruckner, Noeska Smit


Hervorragende Ergebnisse durch institutsübergreifende Kooperationen

Theresa Neubauer entwickelte eine neue Bild-Segmentierungsmethode von Tumoren, die maschinelles Lernen (Künstliche Intelligenz) verwendet, um komplexe Bildmerkmale und Zusammenhänge zwischen den Modalitäten zu lernen und somit den Tumor effizienter und präziser segmentieren zu können.
