Scientific Visualization and Computer Graphics (SVCG)
Our SVCG research group, within the Department of Computing Science, is a part of the Bernoulli Institute of Mathematics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (BI) of the University of Groningen, the Netherlands.
The group carries out research in the areas of scientific visualization, information visualization, software visualization, multiscale shape analysis, illustrative computer graphics, innovative interfaces using large displays, geometric modelling and vector graphics. We apply our research to fundamental and practical problems from the life sciences (functional brain imaging, bioinformatics), astronomy, as well as the CAD industry. The group participates in the research school Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience (BCN) and the Neuroimaging Center (NIC) of the University of Groningen and the University Medical Center Groningen.
