IEEE VIS 2019 in Vancouver

This year, the IEEE VIS Conference took place in Vancouver, Canada. 20-25 October, scientists and practitioners from all over the world presented the newest research in the area of visualization. Of course the Interactive Media Lab was present as well. Tamara Flemisch, Ricardo Langner, Tom Horak and Wolfgang Büschel from our lab attended the conference. While Tamara and Tom served as Student Volunteers, Wolfgang gave a talk about our CG&A article Augmented Reality Graph Visualizations: Investigation of Visual Styles in 3D Node-Link Diagrams on Wednesday. More information, the paper PDF and the presentation slides can be found on the project page. Ulrik Günther and Aryaman Gupta of the CSBD/MPI-CBG were also there and presented a poster from the Cluster of Excellence Physics of Life and a short paper.

MobileHCI 2019 in Taipei

MobileHCI 2019

From October 1 to 4, the ACM MobileHCI 2019 conference took place in Taipei, Taiwan. IMLD’s Wolfgang Büschel presented our work on Smartphone-based Pan and Zoom in AR. More information about this project, the paper download as well as the presentation slides can be found at the project page.

Best Paper Award for Our Perspective Paper at CHIIR 2018

Wolfgang presented our perspective paper “Here and Now: Reality-Based Information Retrieval” at ACM CHIIR 2018 in New Brunswick, NJ, USA. We are very happy that our concepts and ideas for possible future information retrieval systems in mixed reality environments proved very popular. Our paper was awarded the Best Paper Award at the conference. Congratulations to the authors Wolfgang Büschel, Annett Mitschick and Raimund Dachselt! We also added some photos to our gallery.

IML Dresden active at OUTPUT and Dresden Science Night

Once more, the IML Dresden participated with multiple demos in both OUTPUT and the Dresden Science Night.

On Thursday, June 15, Students of the Faculty of Computer Science presented interesting projects at OUTPUT 2017, developed during last semester’s courses.
