Advanced VR, iMmersive serious games and augmented reality as tools to raise awareness and access to European underwater Cultural heritage (iMARECULTURE)

Underwater Cultural Heritage assets are widely spread into the Mediterranean. Unlike land archaeological sites, however, submerged settlements, ancient ports and other coastal industrial installations, especially shipwrecks, are not accessible to the general public or all experts, due to their environment and depth. Photos and surfaced artifacts exhibited in maritime museums… Read More

Neurobiological mechanisms of functional neurological disorders

Functional neurological symptoms (FNS) are somatic symptoms that still remain poorly understood. Their diagnosis is made by exclusion of organic cause and therefore does not provide any specific cues for the subsequent treatment. Virtual reality (VR) seems to be mature enough to be experimentally tested as a potential therapeutic intervention… Read More

Influence of cartographic visualization methods on the success of solving practical and educational spatial tasks

The project is based on interdisciplinary communication and collaboration of cartographers, psychologists, pedagogues and IT experts. The project allows us to find answers to questions about how the different characteristics of models and different user interfaces influence the effectiveness of “communicating information” — e.g. the degree of understanding, the effectiveness… Read More

Mobility of students and education staff leading to the integration of the interactive visual analysis with analysis and visualization of protein structures and their ensembles

The objective of this project was to establish the cooperation platform between the visualization groups at the University of Bergen and the Masaryk University. This platform forms the basis for joining closely related research and education activities currently ongoing in both groups.

Analysis and visualization of protein structures

New analysis methods for biochemical research of proteins will be developed in this project. Geometric features of dynamic models of proteins will be evaluated with aim to find and describe tunnels that interconnect active area inside the protein with the surface of the molecule. Qualities of tunnels such as surface,… Read More

Visualization of protein structures

The project focuses on research methods for visualization of proteins. Using methods from computational geometry, the spatial relationships in protein structures are analyzed. 3D Voronoi diagrams are employed for the analysis of large proteins. The project also addresses new methods of visualization using virtual reality to reveal details about the… Read More

Shared Virtual Worlds

The aim of this project is to connect two workplaces focused in computer graphics research by several high-speed data streams and integrate two “local virtual environments” into one. Three-dimensional scenes will be projected on large-scale stereo projection walls and exchanged between the two workplaces. The project will include methods of… Read More

HCILAB – Human-Computer Interactions Laboratory

In summary, we propose to set up a research laboratory of human-computer interactions. A large part of this Lab’s research will be devoted to the virtual reality paradigm, where the computer is made as much subservient to human skills, needs and real- world training as possible. We will extend our current and seek… Read More
