Lecture Courses, Summer Term 2017

Lecture Courses, Bachelor Level

  • Automotive User Interfaces

    The development of user interfaces in vehicles is one of the most challenging questions in human-computer interaction. Today, advances in autonomous driving, digitalisation, and electro-mobility offer new opportunities.

    In this lecture course, the student will aquire general knowledge of basic concepts, theories, methods, technologies, and tools for the design, development, and evaluation of automotive user interfaces. The topics addressed will be conveyed in interdiciplinary as well as close to application and research.

  • Data Visualization

    This lecture course deals with basics of information visualisation and scientific visualisation. The concept of the visualisation pipeline serves as a common thread to contextualise all introced techniques. The main focus is put on interactive visualisation techniques which allow for interacting e.g. by filtering or manipulating visualisation parameters.

    Further details

  • Digital Media

    We will consider elementary topics such as digital representation, capacity exigencies of digital media, coding and compression, distribution, and also text, graphics, audio, video formats.

    Further details

  • Law and Media (Medienrecht)

    The distribution of information via digital communication channals is embedded in various subareas of law. The lecture course focusses on the most relevant parts of German law.

  • Principles in Design II

    This lecture course is about the design of creative media and communication, in particular the visual interpretation of auditive events, screen typography, audiovisual dramaturgy, functual and formal-aesthetic design practice and general systematic design methods.

    Further details in German

  • User Interface Software Technologies

    The lecture course first addresses the basics of interactive systems and the introduction of user interfaces. Apart from practical aspects, we will go into the details of various media and formal descriptive methods, e.g., special dialogue notations. If convenient, we will introduce case studies in Java.

Seminars, Summer Term 2017

Seminars, open to Bachelor and Master Students

  • Electronic Music - Theory and Application

    The main focus of this semiar is put on additive sound synthesis for gongs based on random sinus tones filtered out of white noise this is by means of resonance filters with variable band width. Else we will generate sequences of tones.

    Afterwards, the developed sounds will be discussed in general as well as with regards to their possible adherence to various musical cultures.

  • Graduate Seminar

    The graduate seminar gives all students who have submitted their bachelor or master theses at our institute an opportunity to present their research results to a broader public. All interested students and scientists are invited to join us!

    Further details

  • Visual Computing

    This seminar is dedicated to topics of all subareas of visual computing especially computer graphics, visualisation, and game programming.

    Each student is to choose a specific topic and to work on it assisted by his tutor.

    The obtained research results and written elaborations will be considered and discussed in a concluding plenary session.

Application Subjects and Projects, Summer Term 2017

Application Subjects and Projects - Bachelor Level

  • Design, Implementierung und Evaluation von Serious Games I (Applied Subject/Project)

    This course spanning two semesters conveys knowledge about the application and design of digital educational games, so called serious games, with regards to their cognitive and affective effects. It includes the analysis of existing serious games. In addition, participants are offered the opportunity to conceptualise, implement, test by means of schematic play testing algorithms, and enhance novel educational game concepts  autonomously.

    Further informatin in German

  • Interactive Design of Information I (Applied Subject)

    Interactive Design of Information I together with a second part in the following semester forms an applied subject of the bachelor and master programme of media informatics.

    In this course, we focus on the graphic processing of complex subjects, cases and facts, so that they can be apprehended in short time. The course is conceptualised as a problem centred project which is carried out in groups.

    Further information in German

  • Interactive Systems II (Applied Subject)

    The well prepared subjects of the project work in the previous semester will be rolled out in small project teams. A first creative experimental stage contains an iterative process resulting in a subject-specific and design-focused concept. Then, a definite draft is framed. Finally a - maybe prototypical - implementation is persued.

  • Human Computer Interaction (Applied Subject/Project)

    We aim at developing a comprehensive project based on a subject of the field of human-computer interaction. The conceptualisation is supposed to reflect contemporary research questions mentioned in literature. Then, a whole project will be carried out by groups of four or five students, to address the drafted question.
