Welcome to the
Institute of Computer Graphics.

Research in visual computing has evolved tremendously in the last decade. Besides classical topics such as image processing, visualization and rendering, interactive systems such as augmented reality and virtual reality have become more and more relevant, while new areas like computational imaging emerge.

Not only the rapid development of graphics hardware, but also stronger overlap with interdisciplinary fields such as computer vision, applied optics, visual perception, and human-computer interaction, shaped visual computing in the previous years and made it into what it is today: an exciting and multidisciplinary field of research with applications in almost all aspects of our modern life.

Our research focuses on basic problems in visual computing and is strongly linked to various disciplines, such as computational optics and visual analytics for natural and life sciences. We offer advanced education in fundamental topics such as computer graphics, computer vision, and visualization–a field known as visual computing today.
