VRVis is represented at IEEE VIS 2021 with two papers, a Short Paper and an Application Spotlight presentation.
IEEE VIS, the annual conference on visualization and visual analytics, takes place from October 25 to 30, 2021. Founded in 1990, the conference has been an important exchange platform as well as an international scientific forum for topics related to visualization for more than three decades, with attendance of around 1200 researchers from all over the world. VRVis is represented with two contributions: an Application Spotlight Talk by Katja Bühler and a Short Paper Presentation by Johanna Schmidt.
Spotlight Application Talk by Katja Bühler October 28, 2021 in the panel "Bridging Visualization with Radiation Oncology": Challenges and opportunities in fusing AI and visual computing for radiotherapy planning. Katja Bühler’s scientific roots are in reliable computing, numerics and geometry processing. Today’s focus of her research is on the development of highly efficient methods to provide access to information encoded in biomedical images with the aim to accelerate image-based decision making. For this purpose, she is fusing expertise in image processing, machine and deep learning, high performance computing, data mining, visualization and human computer interaction to novel visual computing solutions for medicine and life science. The software emerged from the groups research is helping radiologists, radiotherapists, cancer biologists and surgeons to efficiently cope with multi-modal data and to accelerate diagnostic tasks in their daily clinical routine. The e-science platform Brain* addresses the urgent need to manage and exploit image intense data collections and accelerates multi-omics and image-based research in neuroscience.
Short Paper presentation by Johanna Schmidt on October 28, 2021 and Q&A moderation: Histogram binning revisited with a focus on human perception. Authors: Raphael Sahann, Torsten Möller, Johanna Schmidt.
