Progress in contemporary visual information processing is driven by the joint pursuit of interactivity, realism, and flexibility. To find viable solutions to the scientific and technological challenges encountered towards these goals, we pursue interdisciplinary strategies that draw on computer graphics, computer vision, applied optics, and human visual perception. Our goal is to contribute answers to fundamental scientific questions that enable us to devise new algorithms for visual computing applications.
Prof. em. Wolfgang Boehm, pioneer of Computer-aided Geometric Design (CAGD) and founder of computer graphics research at TU Braunschweig , has passed away. We will always remember him as a great scientist, caring mentor, and amiable colleague.
