Biography

Ivan Viola is Associate Professor at the TU Wien, Austria. He received M.Sc. in 2002 and Ph.D. in 2005 from TU Wien, Austria. Afterwards, in 2006 he joined the University of Bergen, Norway as a Postdoctoral researcher and contributed to a buildup of a new research group on visualization at the Institute of Informatics. In 2008 he was promoted to Associate Professor and in 2011 to Full Professor at the University of Bergen. During this period he was also appointed as a scientific adviser at the Christian Michelsen Research, Norway. His research is focusing on illustrative visualization techniques with particular application in medicne, biological and earth sciences. Viola has co-authored about hundred of scientific works, published in international journals and conferences such as IEEE TVCG, EG CGF, Elsevier's C&G, IEEE VIS, and EG EuroVis, and acted as a reviewer and IPC member for conferences in the field of computer graphics and visualization. He is member of Eurographics and VGTC IEEE Computer Society.
