In recognition of his leadership and outstanding contributions in visualization, our own Professor Helwig Hauser is being awarded an Honorary Doctorate at the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg in Germany on June 10, 2022.

Helwig studied at the TU Wien, where he received his PhD and Habilitation. He was Scientific Director of the VRVis Research Center in Vienna, until he joined the University of Bergen in 2007 to build up the visualization research environment here.

We thank Helwig for his invaluable contributions and endless efforts to make Bergen a top destination for excellent research and teaching, and sincerely congratulate him to this recognition!
