The seminar deals with current research topics in the field of Virtual Reality. Topics are taken from conference contributions and the latest journal publications. The focus is on research and applications in medicine, mechanical engineering, machine and plant construction, flow visualization, and flow simulation.

Changes Due To Corona

If attendance-based classes and events are still not allowed due to the Coronavirus, an online concept will be used for the seminar via Zoom.

We will keep all participants up-to-date.


Topics for presentations will be agreed on in the course of the semester; the presentations will be given in an intensive block course format towards the end of the lecture period. Seminar participants can take part in a guided tour through the VR Lab and a demonstration of the aixCAVE.


Previous knowledge of the subject is not required; but the attendance of the Virtual Reality and Computer Graphics lectures by Professors Kuhlen and Kobbelt, respectively, is recommended.

Certificate of Participation ("Schein")

Students who wish to obtain a certificate of participation must submit a written paper (a PDF file created using LaTeX), give a successful presentation of the paper (and a prior test presentation in front of their supervisor) at the block seminar, and attend the block seminar in its entirety. Please note that all deadlines must be met. The decision on who will receive the certificate will be announced at the end of the block seminar.
