In this talk, I will introduce a few recent work on tree visualization.

On Tuesday 19th, Haichao Miao from the Visualization Group defended his PhD thesis with the title "Geometric Abstraction for Effective Visualization and Modeling".

Congratulations and all the best for the rest of his academic career!

the Research Division of Computer Graphics is organizing a small workshop "Vienna Symposium on Visualization (VieVisDays) on August 19th and 20th 2019", which we cordially invite you to attend. The talks will be given in English.

Lehrausgang zum Institute of Visual Computing & Human-Centered Technology der TU Wien

Am 19. Juni 2019 gingen wir, eine kleine aber feine Gruppe von drei Schülerinnen und drei Schülern der Klasse 7A, der auch ich (Prof. Born) beiwohnen durfte ins Institute of Visual Computing & Human-Centered Technology.

Wie schwer es sein kann, sich in seiner Umgebung zu orientieren, wenn man unter Grauem Star leidet, zeigt ein Projekt der TU Wien. Hier wurde untersucht, wie man Augenkrankheiten virtuell simulieren kann. Pflegepersonal in Altenheimen oder Gebäude- und Lichtplaner könnten in ihrer Arbeit davon profitieren.

We are developing a web-based real-time visualization framework build on top of WebGL 2.0 with deferred rendering pipeline with support for mesh geometry data as well as volumetric data. The framework allows merging the rendering outputs of different modalities in a seamless final image.
Károly Zsolnai-Fehér will speak at this year’s NATO Conference in a panel with Maciej Surowiec, Director of Governmental Affairs at Microsoft, Tim Hwang, Director of Ethics and Governance of AI Initiative at Harvard / MIT among others.

Microtubules are long, hollow tubes present in each of your cells. They help to maintain the shape of the cell, and they form rails along which material is transported throughout the cell. They even help with the cell division.
