Laboratory of Computer Graphics and Multimedia is involved in activities related to multimedia technologies, computer-based education and learning, human-computer interaction, and virtual/augmented reality. The laboratory is a member of the international consortium CoLoS, together with 18 Universities around the world. The main area of interest of CoLoS consortium is computer supported conceptual learning of natural sciences. The laboratory also cooperates with Microsoft in introducing new software technologies.
The main ongoing activities in the laboratory are dedicated to researches in the following areas:
- digital libraries and multimedia information retrieval,
- educational metadata creation, retrieval and exchange,
- folksonomy and social tagging,
- development of interactive educational content,
- e-learning environments.
Additionally, we are also active in the development of virtual an augmented reality applications, grid computing, interactive learning systems, and didactic simulations and visualisation of natural phenomena.
Therefore, the laboratory is well equipped with professional software tools for 3D design, visualization, animation, and video editing. Some presentation and videoconferencing equipment is also available.
In the past, members of the laboratory cooperated with other research groups in the development of military training systems, medical imaging applications, various simulation tools for computer supported industrial automation, including robotized environments, and computer supported quality control and management systems.
The laboratory is a member of the international consortium CoLoS, together with 18 European and some other Universities. The main area of interest of CoLoS consortium is computer supported conceptual learning of natural sciences.
