How to connect the two fields of aesthetics and technical quality? The ATQAM workshop at the ACM Multimedia Conference 2020 brought together researchers of both fields.
The first Workshop on Eye Tracking for Quality of Experience in Multimedia (ET-MM) took place online via Zoom on June 2nd, 2020.
Jeffrey Heer visited the SFB-TRR 161 at VISUS. Katrin Angerbauer and Cristina Morariu organized his stay. This is the report on how the visit went.
From 17 to 22 May 2019, the 19th annual meeting of the Vision Science Society (VSS 2019), took place at the TradeWinds Island Resort in St. Pete Beach, Florida. Priscilla Balestrucci describes her impressions.
At the this year’s Augmented Human International Conference, Marc O. Ernst from the Applied Cognitive Psychology group at the Ulm University and project investigator in the SFB-TRR 161 held the keynote lecture about Natural vs. Artificial Intelligence.
Between the 11th until 15th of February I attended the Augmented Reality Summer School at the University of Auckland, in New Zealand. There, I had the opportunity to use the MagicLeap One, a sophisticated Optical See-Through Head-Mounted Display (OST-HMD) device. I enjoyed the trip and came back home very inspired to continue with my research activities.
In July 2018, approximately 100 researchers and practitioners interested in the field of provenance gathered at Provenance Week 2018 that took place at King’s College London. Among them, Sarah Oppold (PhD student, Data Engineering group at the Institute of Parallel and Distributed Systems (IPVS), University of Stuttgart) and me.
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.
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.
Last week (October 8-12, 2018) was a conference week for computer scientists in Stuttgart, as three main events took place co-located in space and time: the 1st International Conference on Quantification in Visual Computing (SFB-TRR 161), the 40th German Conference on Pattern Recognition (GCPR), and the 23rd International Symposium on Vision, Modelling, and Visualization (VMV).
