Open Topics for Theses

I like to supervise theses with topics in the fields of Real-Time Rendering, Global Illumination or Physically Based Rendering, but also from other fields in Computer Graphics.

If you are interested in writing a thesis, please send me an email or drop by my office.



The lab of the VISCOM group contains a 2.5m x 4m sized projection wall. We use 12 x 2 FullHD projectors to show interactive images using passive stereo. The wall contains a touch interface for input.
