Interactive Graphics and Simulation Group

Welcome to the Interactive Graphics and Simulation (igs) Group in Innsbruck.

The Interactive Graphics and Simulation Group was founded in 2014 by Matthias Harders. Our scientific focus is on methods and algorithms in the areas of physically-based simulation, computer haptics, and virtual/augmented reality. We are also interested in human-computer interaction and multi-modal data visualization. The main application area of our developments is the medical domain.
