We warmly congratulate our Prof. Dieter W. Fellner, who was honoured by the University of Rostock with the dignity of a doctoral engineer (Dr.-Ing. eh.) for his outstanding scientific achievement. The award took place during the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of computer graphics at the University of Rostock.
"Traditio et Innovatio" - this was the motto of the University of Rostock, which not only led through the day, but also through the history of computer graphics research. Once only a niche subject, today it is an essential part of research, life and work. In his acceptance speech, Prof. Fellner explained that, as head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD, he particularly appreciated the challenges that applied research brings with it. Looking back, he thanked the mentors, colleagues, students and employees who shaped his time at various universities and at Fraunhofer.
