The Institute of Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualisation (CGV) was founded in 2005 as part of the faculty of Computer Science. Our research and teaching focuses on areas of geometry modeling and processing, digital libraries and research fields related to these, namely CAGD (Computer Aided Geometric Design), Virtual reality, and Cultural Heritage.
Our research facilities include an immersive projection environment referred to as DAVE, a multi touch interaction table, a handheld scanner, a 3D printer, and more.
Our research projects, many in cooperation with industry and international academic research groups, are funded by the European Union and Austrian funding agencies FWF and FFG. The Institute has a close cooperation with Fraunhofer Austria. Research results so far have been published in over 300 articles in international journals, such as CAGD and conferences, workshops and symposia, such as SIGGRAPH and Eurographics amongst others.
