Welcome to the Graphics and Vision Research Laboratory in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Otago. The laboratory was formed in 1986, and today consists of 3 academic staff and several postgraduate students, as well as the occasional visitor.
Our research is varied, but most of it falls somewhere in the broad fields of computer graphics, vision, and image processing. Mostly we're doing stuff that is interesting and fun, since we believe that makes the lab an interesting and fun place to be. You can find out more technical details from our publications.
Stefanie Zollmann has just joined the department as a lecturer. She has previously worked at Animation Research Ltd., and her research interests lie in Visual Computing, the intersection between vision, graphics, visualisation, and HCI.
The Int. Conf. on Parallel Processing was held from August 16-19 in Philadelphia. Huan presented work on scalable nearest neighbours search using PCA. This was joint work with David, Steven, and Zhiyi, as well as Yongwei Wu from Tsingua University, China.
