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.

Our group will be presenting at the "gamescom" fair in Cologne this year. We will give an insight into our activities and inform about possibilities of studying graphics-centered computer science at RWTH Aachen and how this will prepare (not only) for work in the games industry. Of course, we will also have something to play at our booth E060a in hall 10.1. More information
