Dr. Martin Göbel has been appointed Honorary Chair of the IEEE VR 2015. He is one of the trailblazers of Virtual Reality in Germany as well as in the rest of Europe. He has been active in the field since the early nineties when, apart from Germany, only Switzerland, Great Britain and Sweden played an active part in the European VR scene.
The IEEE VR 2015 will be held from 23-27 March in Arles, France. Martin Göbel and a team of researchers from our Institute will be presenting their work.

Katharina Stollenwerk, Jens Maiero and Thorsten Roth are the three IVC members among a total of eight doctoral candidates from H-BRS who have been awarded a scholarship for their PhD project.
Katharina Stollenwerk works on two-handed interaction in virtual environments in cooperation with the University of Bonn. Jens Maiero looks into the challenges of human-machine-interaction in dynamically projected environments (Spatial Augmented Reality). Thorsten Roth tries to solve problems in global illumination algorithms by iteratively incorporating light field measurements into the Monte-Carlo-based rendering process, including post-processing techniques.
