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:

Geometry Lab Exhibition
On November 3–5 we will be staging the Geometry Lab: an event where works of art meet scientific exhibits. Located in the Ludwig Forum art gallery, the exhibition displays an entire spectrum from classical geometric phenomena to modern research areas. In addition, workshops will be held for participants to fold paper into fascinating forms, build complex structures with Zometool, or even assemble their very own 3D printer.
