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, as well as social Virtual Reality.


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.

Successful Participation

Students who wish to successfully participate in the seminar must submit a written paper (a PDF file created using our LaTeX template), 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 and all requirements such as minimum page count must be met. The minimum page count must already be fulfilled when handing in the first version of the paper. The decision on who will successfully participate will be announced after the block seminar.

Changes Due To Corona

The introductory event as well as the final presentations will be onsite in the IT Center. Interim meeting with your supervisor will be mainly online.
