Visual Computing and Multimedia

Overview

This research group comprises three labs, the Computational Geometry and Applications Lab ( CGA Lab: Computational Geometry and Applications), the Multimedia Communications Lab, and the Multimedia Signal Processing and Security Lab (WaveLab,  wavelab.at). 

Topics of research

Computational Geometry and Applications Lab:

  • computational geometry,
  • algorithms and data structures (particularly those with a geometric   flavor),
  • algorithm engineering,
  • program design, robustness and reliability,
  • GPU-based computing, and
  • applications of geometric algorithms and data structures in, e.g.,   computer-aided (geometric) design, computer-aided manufacturing,   geographical information systems,   computer graphics, visual computing, and virtual reality.
