The research and teaching activities at our institute focus on geometry acquisition and processing, on interactive visualization, and on related areas such as computer vision, photo-realistic image synthesis, and ultra high speed multimedia data transmission.
In our projects we are cooperating with various industry companies as well as with academic research groups around the world. Results are published and presented at high-profile conferences and symposia. Additional funding sources, among others, are the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and the European Union.
Prof. Dr. Leif Kobbelt has been elected a full member of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts
The North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts is an association of the leading scientists in North Rhine-Westphalia. The Academy was founded in 1970 as the successor institution to the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Forschung of the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia, which had been founded in 1950 by the then Premier of the Federal State, Karl Arnold, to provide advice to the State Government in the reconstruction of the State after its devastation in the war. For further information about the Academy, please visit its homepage.

The new webpage of the Aachen Cathedral
The new webpage of the Aachen Cathedral has been launched. A central feature of this new web experience is an interactive virtual tour in 3D which is based on methods and algorithms for 3D reconstruction and efficient photorealistic rendering developed by the Computer Graphics group at the Visual Computing Institute. Web concept, technology, and implementation have been done by the Interactive Pioneers. More information about the 3D reconstruction and rendering process can be found here.
