Bis die Daten gut visualisiert waren, war mein Praktikum leider schon vorbei …

In der Woche vom 25.2 bis zum 1.3 habe ich an der Universität Konstanz, im Bereich Data Analysis & Visualization mein BOGY-Praktikum absolviert. Ich bin der Meinung, dass dieses Praktikum mir sehr viel gebracht hat, da ich bestätigt wurde, dass ich in der Welt der Informatik gut aufgehoben bin. Vielen Dank für die tolle Woche!

BOGY in der Stuttgarter Visualisierungsforschung

BOGY in der Stuttgarter Visualisierungsforschung

In der Woche vor den Faschingsferien haben wir unser BOGY-Praktikum an der Universität Stuttgart im Sonderforschungsbereich SFB-TRR 161 „Quantifizierung und Visual Computing“ absolviert. Während dieser Zeit wurden uns zahlreiche Einblicke in die verschiedenen Aufgabenbereiche des VISUS sowie die Besonderheiten der Arbeit als wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter einer Universität gewährt.

How to Cue and Redirect our Attention by Warning Systems

How to Cue and Redirect our Attention by Warning Systems

When designing technical solutions, developers are aware that the attentional capacity of their users is limited. Thus, it is an open question on how our limited attention can be cued and redirected by warning systems. In a recent study, Lewis Chuang and Christiane Glatz tested different warning sounds at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen. The scientists found out that certain sounds redirected our attention away from an ongoing task better than others.

Research Stay at the University of Oregon in Eugene

Research Stay at the University of Oregon in Eugene

Last summer, I went for a three month research stay at the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR, USA. I closely collaborated with the research group on Computing and Data Understanding at eXtreme Scale (CDUX) led by Hank Childs. Their work is closely related to my research within the SFB-TRR 161 at the Visualization Research Center at the University of Stuttgart. In the collaborative project, we worked on performance prediction in hybrid in situ environments.

How can Virtual and Augmented Reality Help to Analyze and Visualize Data?

How can Virtual and Augmented Reality Help to Analyze and Visualize Data?

Since August 2018, Michael Sedlmair is a researcher at the Visualization Research Center at the University of Stuttgart. As Assistant Professor his work focuses on the development of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) solutions, Data Visualization, and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). In an interview he answered some questions regarding his current and future research activities and his idea of how our future might look like.

Second Sino-German Workshop on Visualization

Second Sino-German Workshop on Visualization

The second Sino-German Workshop on visualization was held in the Estrel hotel, Berlin, Germany on 21st, October 2018, co-located with IEEE VIS 2018. This workshop aimed at bringing together German and Chinese researchers in the field of visualization and was co-organized by Prof. Yunhai Wang from Shandong University, China, and me. Over 40 participants from German and Chinese Universities including University of Konstanz, University of Stuttgart, University of Bonn, Shandong University, Zhejiang University, and Peking University were brought together.

IEEE VIS 2018 Meets Berlin

IEEE VIS 2018 Meets Berlin

From October 21 to 26, IEEE VIS 2018, the largest international conference on scientific visualization, information visualization and visual analytics, took place. This year’s VisWeek was located the very first time in Germany and the second time outside the United States. I attended the conference together with many other researchers from Stuttgart, from the Visualization Research Centre (VISUS) and the Institute for Visualization and Interactive Systems (VIS). We had the opportunity to present and discuss our current research and to get in touch with other researchers and exchange ideas.
