We are looking for interested students for  BA or MA theses, for being a  Hiwi oder for helping us in our research areas. Please email Prof. Deussen and make an appointment. 

Information Visualization

Bachelor / Master

Every second, large amounts of data are collected to solve real world problems. To help the user to manage and understand these complex datasets we are working on developing novel visualizations and techniques. There are several interesting problems and topics related to information visualization:

  • Computational geometry: Layout problems and overlap removal
  • Perception and user studies
  • Acquiring and handling real world data from APIs
  • Exploring augmented and virtual reality for visualization
  • Using GPU programming and techniques from computer graphics to handle large datasets

We have several topics related to these areas - if you are interested just write me an email.

Dynamic Stippling

Bachelor / Master

We developed a novel algorithm for Stippling that works by splitting and merging Voronoi cells. It is simple, fast, and produces high quality point sets. You can find more details about it on our project page here. However, there is still room for improvements, both with regard to speed and quality.

For this project you will:

  • Get familiar with our algorithmic idea
  • Identify bottlenecks with regard to convergence
  • Build upon our algorithm (or create a novel) to improve performance and/or output quality
