Research 

Research at the Department for Computer Science 9 (Computer graphics) is seperated into four fields. Geometric Modelling, Rendering, Visualization and Virtual Reality. These areas of research are not isolated but live from one another. Fundamental research is as important as are practical applications. While the fields of application are many, we primarily work in the area of medical or engeneering research.

You can also have a look at our research projects finished in the following years:

These research projects are possible because of the many educational and industrial programs and cooperations in which the department participates.

  • Sonderforschungsbereich (SFB) 603: Modellbasierte Analyse und Visualisierung komplexer Szenen und Sensordaten.
  • Graduiertenkolleg 3D-Bildanalyse und -synthese
  • KONWIHR: Kompetenznetzwerk für Technisch-Wissenschaftliches Hoch- und Höchstleistungsrechnen in Bayern
  • Neurozentrum der Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg
    • DFG Projekt GR 796/2-2: Modellbasierte Registrierung zur Simulation und Visualisierung von Brain Shift Phänomenen bei neurochirurgischen Eingriffen.
  • BEO-Projekt, Bereich 43, Vorhaben 0327324A Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH: Entwicklung und Einsatz von Softwareprogrammen zum Bau energiesparender Industrieöfen für die Werkstoffherstellung und Kristallzüchtung.

Industrial cooperations mainly take place by supervising senior, diploma or PhD thesis which are paid by a company. Relations exist for example between the department and the companies and institutions listed below:
