The departments of the Institute for Visualization and Interactive Systems are doing research in the fields of Computer Graphics and Visualization, Interactive Systems and Human-Computer-Interaction as well as Intelligent Systems and Computer Vision. We mainly focus on basic research (usually promoted by the German Research Council) and applied research (mainly promoted by Federal Ministries and the European Union). Additionally, thematically there can be found some points of contact as well as common projects between the departments. Spreading research directions are Visual Computing and Interactive Intelligent Systems.
