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.


Wolfgang Straßer Award (Best Paper)

  1. Software Rasterization of 2 Billion Points in Real Time
    Makus Schütz, Bernhard Kerbl, Michael Wimmer


Abstract and Paper (link)


The EuroVis Young Researcher Award is given each year to one young researcher in the field who has already made a significant contribution to visualization in general and more specifically to the European visualization community (e.g., through outstanding scientific contributions to the EuroVis conference). The intent of this award is to recognize people early on in their career who have already made a notable contribution and are likely to make more.


The EuroVis Best PhD Dissertation Award recognizes outstanding dissertations in academic research and development over topics relevant to visualization. The intent of this award is to recognize excellent young researchers in their early career and to highlight visualization research.


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.


Each semester, TU Wien Informatics recognizes the most outstanding master students for their exceptional achievements in research.
