The Visual Computing Institute is a research institute within the Computer Science Department at RWTH Aachen University. It brings together all research groups that are addressing the diverse scientific aspects of the generation, processing, analysis, and display of visual data. As such, the VCI covers a very broad spectrum of research competences ranging from geometry processing and computer graphics to computer vision, immersive visualization and simulation. Our mission is to develop innovative methods and algorithms in this area and to create impact in fundamental research as well as in industrial applications. Further information about projects, research, and teaching activities can be found on the individual group websites:
Successful Event „VR in Industry“
Due to the current hype of the discipline of Virtual Reality (VR) evoked by top-quality and affordable VR devices on the markets, some issues arise in Industry: How can VR be optimally integrated into the existing processes? Which hardware and software are required? Which costs are incurred for a company?
To answer these questions we teamed up with the TEMA Technologie Marketing AG, and organized as well as partially hosted "The VR in Industry Days in Aachen" on July, 4th to 5th.

Profile Area Information and Communication Technology now on LinkedIn
The Profile Area Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) plays an important role in all global challenges the institutional strategy of RWTH Aachen University addresses. Major topics of ICT such as Smart Systems, eHealth & AAL, Wireless Communication or Data Mining have an enormous research potential and a considerable practical relevance. However, the challenges occurring in this fields can only be solved on an interdisciplinary level. Therefore, the RWTH Aachen University founded the interdisciplinary Profile Area ICT with the respective Project House ICT Foundations of a Digitized Industry, Economy, and Society. Both, the Visual Computing Institute as well as the Chair of Computer Science 12, are members of this Project House with, in total, three projects.
In order to share and discuss ICT related information, the Profile Area ICT now has a LinkedIn presence. So, visit our profile and follow us on LinkedIn.
