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 experts.

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.
