Since the beginning of this year, the SFB-TRR 161 offers
fellowships for international PhD
students in the field of visual computing. In this context, young scientists get the
opportunity to collect experiences in Germany and exchange research knowledge with the projects at
the Universities of Stuttgart and Konstanz, or at the Max Planck Institute for Biological
Cybernetis in Tübingen. Until now, two fellows used this chance and visited our visual computing
Juan Pablo Alcocer from the University of Chile was our first guest. The PhD student in computer
science spent May and June in Stuttgart at the Visualization Research Center in
project A01. During these
two months, he worked at a performance evolution matrix in cooperation with Fabian Beck.
The next computer scientist traveling to Germany was
Ayush Kumar, a computer
scientist from Stony Brook University and SUNY Korea. His research stay at the Visualization
Research Center in Stuttgart, where he joined
project B01, started in
June for the duration of four months. Primarily supported by Rudolf Netzel, Kuno Kurzhals, and
Fabian Beck, he investigated the visualization of eye tracking data and got two papers published
during his stay. At the end of September, he left the SFB-TRR 161 to return to Korea, but the
ambitious PhD student is already thinking about a further visit in Stuttgart to continue working on
his research topic.
Further fellowships are already scheduled: In October, Dietmar Saupes’ team will welcome a
student from Iran in Konstanz. Later on, in December, Leonel Merino from Switzerland will join
Daniel Keim’s project in Konstanz and Shadan Sadeghian Borojeni from Iran will be a guest in the
Lewis Chuang’s project in Tübingen.
