Werner Purgathofer, who headed our departement for over 20 years, retired in September 2021. We will miss his social engagement and his oversight. We wish him all the best for the next stage of his life!
From the laudation by Eduard Gröller at the Faculty of Informatics garden party in September 2021:
Sehr geehrter Herr Professor Purgathofer, dear Werner,
Nanographics, a spin-off of our reseach unit Computer Graphics, supports the creation and visualization of structural models of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. This helps the scientific research and the public education about the disease.
Computer Graphics Forum (CGF) is the leading journal for in-depth technical articles on computer graphics. The rapid publication of articles allows readers to keep up to date with new debates and topics of research. The journal features a lively mix of original research, computer graphics applications, conference reports, state-of-the-art surveys, and workshops.
