3rd place at the Thesis Fast Forward of SIGGRAPH 2019 goes to VRVis
The most recent SIGGRAPH2019 conference was held in Los Angeles (USA) from 28 July to 1 August 2019. Katharina Krösl was selected for the Thesis Fast Forward Track with her work "Simulating Vision Impairments in VR and AR". In this special session, 30 selected candidates present their current research work in compact 3-minute lectures.
In a short lecture, Katharina Krösl presented her dissertation, in which she deals with the simulation of different eye diseases in Virtual Reality, to derive adapted lighting and emergency exit systems on this basis, which are also sufficient for visually impaired persons. The jury awarded Krösl 3rd place. Congratulations!
