Open Master's Projects (contact the respective supervisor)

(Most of the following projects are scalable and can be adapted to suit other project types.)

Supervisor: Jiri Kosinka

* NURBS modelling with control vectors; PDF * Fracture reconstruction; PDF; in collaboration with UMCG.

  • Blending barycentric coordinates; This project would build on this paper. No public description available, contact me for details.
  • Subdivision shading; This project would build on this paper. No public description available, contact me for details.

* OpenSubdiv; This project would deal with Pixar's OpenSubdiv library. No public description available, contact me for details. * Heart valve modelling and reconstruction; This project would be done in collaboration with C.A. Bertoglio. No public description available, contact me for details.

  • NURBS/CAD model processing; thesis/internship at Schut Geometrical Metrology (Groningen); contact me for details.
  • Subdivision surfaces for maritime applications; thesis project in collaboration with MARIN; see PDF

* Research and user study for zSpace interaction. No public description available, contact me for details. * Longest edge-based segmentation for triangular and tetrahedral meshes. No public description available, contact me for details. * Reflection lines and surface quality using machine learning. No public description available, contact me for details.

Supervisor: Steffen Frey

  • In situ visualization of large data; generating visualization of large simulation data on supercomputers while they are generated. Adaptive, data-dependent reduction of data.
  • Visualization of porous media; analysis and comparison of large spatial ensembles from experiments and simulations. Joint project with the University of Stuttgart, Germany, within SFB 1313.
  • Machine learning and optimization for visualization; data-driven extraction of meaningful features from large volumes of complex data and tuning of visualization systems.

Open Term Projects/Internships (Onderzoeksstage)

  • Most of the Master's thesis projects specified above by J. Kosinka and S.Frey 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:

  • geometric modelling (curve and surface representation, splines, subdivision), computer (and especially vector) graphics (contact Jiri Kosinka).
  • scientific visualization (visualization of spatial data, time-dependent, parameter-studies etc.), scalable methods for large data, machine learning and optimization for visualization (contact Steffen Frey).

For more information on the research in our group, see our research web pages. Lists of selected current and completed Bachelor projects, term projects, and Master's projects are also available.
