Welcome to the Visual Computing Institute
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:
