Introductory Event to be announced to be announced

The seminar deals with current research topics in the field of Virtual Reality. Topics are taken from conference contributions and the latest journal publications. The focus is on research and applications in medicine, mechanical engineering, machine and plant construction, as well as social Virtual Reality.

Changes Due To Corona

If attendance-based classes and events are allowed in WS2021/2022, we will have physical meetings in our seminar rooms. However, Plan b is shifting the lab course to an online event with regular videoconferences via Zoom and options to work remotly.

Course

Topics for presentations will be agreed on in the course of the semester; the presentations will be given in an intensive block course format towards the end of the lecture period. Seminar participants can take part in a guided tour through the VR Lab and a demonstration of the aixCAVE.

Requirements

Previous knowledge of the subject is not required; but the attendance of the Virtual Reality and Computer Graphics lectures by Professors Kuhlen and Kobbelt, respectively, is recommended.

Successful Participation

Students who wish to successfully participate in the seminar must submit a written paper (a PDF file created using LaTeX), give a successful presentation of the paper (and a prior test presentation in front of their supervisor) at the block seminar, and attend the block seminar in its entirety. Please note that all deadlines and all requirements such as minimum page count must be met. The decision on who will successfully participate will be announced after the block seminar.
