Open Term Projects (Onderzoeksstage)
- Quantifying balance ability during exergaming in collaboration with INCAS3 Assen. More information: PDF.
- Brain Imaging project in collaboration with Artinis Medical Systems. More information: PDF.
- Most of the Master's thesis projects specified above by J. Kosinka can be adapted to a research/in-company internship project.
General Open Projects
Many projects can be adjusted so that they fit the constraints of either a Master's, term, or Bachelor project. In case you would like to work on a project in a category other than the ones announced, please let us know.
In addition, here are some ideas for projects without a dedicated category:
* Illustrative and Artistic Visualization of Map Data (Bachelor or Onderzoeksstage). Contact: Tobias Isenberg.
Your Own Project Idea
If you have an idea of a specific project or would like to work generally in a specific area, please let us know about it and we can then narrow the project down. Generally, we advise projects in the following areas:
- scientific visualization, multiresolution (wavelets, pyramids), morphological data processing, applications (biomedical, astronomy, bioinformatics) (contact Jos Roerdink),
- information visualisation, software visualisation, skeletonization (contact Alexandru Telea),
- geometric modelling (curve and surface representation, splines, subdivision), computer (and especially vector) graphics (contact Jiri Kosinka).
