Repositories of digitized historical photographs are a key topic of the e Humanities.The junior research group investigates and develops methodical and technological approaches in order to merge, structure and annotate photograps and additional information related to their place and time.
The Bayrischer Rundfunk visited the Media Informatics group at the chair of computer science 9.
During the broadcast of the the Frankenschau reported on the potential of social robots for the care of elderly.
Details can be found on the official Games Engineering website. Latoschik has an invited talk at the CITEC in Bielefeld.
He will introduce recent work of Würzburg's HCI group including results in avatar research, interpersonal synchronization, illusion of virtual body ownership, simulator technology, latency, and computer games. The contribution 'A Simplified Inverse Kinematic Approach for Embodied VR Applications' by Daniel Roth, Jean-Luc Lugrin, Julia Büser, Gary Bente, Arnulph Fuhrmann, and Marc Erich Latoschik was awarded as best poster at the IEEE Virtual Reality conference 2016.
€ collaborative research project VARy FAST which aims at establishing Virtual Reality and competencies to use Virtual Reality as a central tool in various university programs across north Bavaria.
We will present new results of our work (two papers and several posters) at the world premier ACM conference on Virtual Reality Systems and Technology 2016 which will this year take place in Munich, Germany. Latoschik gave an invited talk at the Deutsches Museum in Munich.Our basic research concerning the psycho-physical effectiveness of VR as a therapy medium has been target of a recent TV production for the 'Elektrischer Reporter' of the ZDF info channel. The HCI chair invited a group of 30 highly motivated people for 10 days to learn about novel human-computer interaction and interfaces.The winter school will cover a broad range of topics including interactive graphics, virtual- and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and computer games. The contribution 'Modeling and Evaluating a Bayesian Network of Culture-Dependent Behaviors' by Birgit Lugrin, Julian Frommel, and Elisabeth André was awarded as best paper at the International Conference on Culture and Computing 2015 in Kyoto, Japan.He took us on a wild tour exploring the principles as well as the philosophical aspects of Virtual Reality.The 250 places of the Ehrensaal quickly sold out and participants enjoyed an inspiring event with a lively discussion.Martin Fischbach will present an extended exposé of his Ph D thesis on software techniques for multimodal input processing in Realtime Interactive Systems at the International Conference on Multimodal Interaction in Seattle. Latoschik is invited to give a talk during the Games Campus 2005 Event 'Games Future und Universität 4.0' in Munich during a meeting of colleagues involved in games development and games education.
