Prof. Dr. Ernst Kruijff erhält den IEEE ISMAR 2022 Impact Award

20221021_IEEE_ISMAR_Preis_Ernst_Kruijff_001

IEEE ISMAR 2022 17.-21. Oktober

Prof. Dr. Ernst Kruijff erhielt den IEEE ISMAR 2022 Impact Award für sein Paper "Perceptual Issues in Augmented Reality revisited", das er zusammen mit Steve Feiner (Columbia University) und Ed Swan II (Mississippi State University) im Jahr 2010 verfasst hat. Der renommierter Preis wird von einer der beiden wichtigsten Konferenzen auf dem Gebiet der erweiterten und virtuellen Realität verliehen und zeichnet Arbeiten aus, die einen nachhaltigen Einfluss auf das Fachgebiet haben. 

 

Die IEEE ISMAR ist die führende internationale akademische Konferenz in den Bereichen Augmented Reality und Mixed Reality. Das Symposium wird von der IEEE Computer Society, IEEE VGTC und ACM SIGGRAPH organisiert und unterstützt. Die erste ISMAR-Konferenz wurde 2002 in Darmstadt, Deutschland, abgehalten. Die Konferenz entstand aus der Verschmelzung zweier früherer akademischer Veranstaltungen, die diesem Forschungsgebiet gewidmet waren: dem International Symposium on Augmented Reality (ISAR) und dem International Symposium on Mixed Reality (ISMR).

Prof. Dr. Ken Kent zum "New Barrett Chair in Entrepreneurship for Digital Transformation" ernannt

19. Oktober 2022

Honorarprofessor Dr. Ken Kent wurde auf den "New Barrett Chair in Entrepreneurship for Digital Transformation" an seiner Heimatuniversität/unserer Partneruniversität New Brunswick berufen. Der Fachbereich Informatik und das Institut für Visual Computing gratulieren unserem Honorarprofessor Dr. Ken Kent zu seiner Ernennung und freuen sich auf seine weiteren Beiträge zur H-BRS.

Der Fachbereich Informatik und das Institut für Visual Computing gratulieren  unserem Honorarprofessor Dr. Ken Kent zu seiner Ernennung zum "New Barrett Chair in Entrepreneurship for Digital Transformation" an unserer Partnerhochschule UNB in Kanada.

Bereits seit über 15 Jahren besteht die Partnerschaft zwischen dem Fachbereich Informatik an der Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg  und der Faculty of Computer Science der University of New Brunswick in Kanada

Der Barrett-Lehrstuhl ist in der Fakultät für Informatik (FCS) angesiedelt mit dem Ziel, den digitalen Fortschritt in New Brunswick voranzutreiben. Der Schwerpunkt wird nicht nur auf der Förderung des Entrepreneurships gelegt, er soll auch angewandte Forschungsgruppen koordinieren, neue experimentelle Lernmöglichkeiten mit Schwerpunkt auf Innovation und Gründerkultur legen. 

Hieraus ergeben sich vielleicht auch Möglichkeiten, die gemeinsamen Forschungsprojekte zwischen der UNB und der H-BRS voranzutreiben. Kent war erst kürzlich an der Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, wo er regelmäßig Vorträge hält und sich an Forschungsprojekten im IVC beteiligt.

Wir wünschen Prof. Dr. Ken Kent viel Erfolg für seine neuen Aufgaben!

FPGA Vision Remote-Lab teaching project receives e-learning award

The project Remote Lab by Marco Winzker, Professor for Digital Technology and Digital Signal Processing at the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences (H-BRS), has been recognized at the International Conference on Interactive Collaborative Learning (ICL) in Kos/Greece. The award in the category E-Learning was presented by the International E-Learning Association (IELA link).

Every year, the IELA awards the best academic and commercial projects for technology-supported teaching. This year, the Remote Lab impressed the experts. The award-winning project consists of a laboratory test that can be operated via the Internet, the Remote Lab. In addition, teaching videos are provided enabling students to develop their own subject and content. The teaching concept is already supported by a fellowship for innovations in digital university teaching from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the Stifterverband.

The teaching materials are used in the electrical engineering course at H-BRS and at the partner university Universidad Nacional de San Luis in Argentina. Moreover, the Remote Lab and the teaching videos are available as a free educational resource. Winzker explains: “With this Open Educational Resource, we promote the free exchange of knowledge and offer students all over the world the opportunity to use current teaching content.

World-wide access to the Remote-Lab

In October Prof. Marco Winzker presents the Remote-Lab at a conference in Cape Town and hopes for new users in African countries. But already now Winzker and project collaborator Andrea Schwandt are observing requests from all over the world. Winzker is scientific director of the newly founded Centre for Innovation and Development in Teaching (ZIEL), where he conducts research on current developments in university teaching.

Remote-Lab wins another award!

It was another big day for Professor Dr. Marco Winzker, his coworker Andrea Schwandt and their FPGA-Remote-Lab: The Global Online Laboratory Consortium awards the project the GOLC Online Lab Award 2019 in the category Remote-Lab. In 2018, the team had already been awarded by the International E-Learning Association.

Professor Dr. Iris Groß, Vice President for Studies, Teaching and Continuing Education, was one of the first to congratulate the team: “We support our students both in classical classroom teaching and through modern digital methods. I am pleased that the innovative approach of the Remote Lab is appealing to students and external experts”.

The award-winning project combines a laboratory class that can be operated via the Internet. Teaching videos accompany the laboratory class. This allows students to develop their own subject-specific content and apply it directly in on-hardware experiments.

Both, videos and remote lab, are open, worldwide accessible teaching materials. Winzker explains: “The access statistics give us important information about the use. The teaching videos were accessed from over 60 countries. The Remote Lab was accessed from over 20 countries distributed over all continents. Currently, we have a cooperation with our Ukranian partner university, the Chernihiv National University of Technology, through which video subtitles are now also available in Ukrainian. The Remote Lab is actively used by them in teaching”.
