Visualization Research Center (VISUS)

Central Research Institution of the University of Stuttgart


About 30 scientists research in different areas of scientific visualisation, visual analytics, visual computing and computer graphics, as well as interdisciplinary, applied research. The latter results in a very close co-operation with non-visualization disciplines of the University of Stuttgart.

As part of the Institute for Visualisation and Interactive Systems (VIS), the insitute is embedded into the Faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. There is a close cooperation to the other departments of VIS. The academic staff is involved into the teaching program for computer science and software engineering.


Coronavirus | Sars-CoV-2

Here, the university management of the University of Stuttgart provides information about the current situation caused by the coronavirus in the form of a news ticker. Advice for students and staff regarding examinations, lectures, business trips, working hours and suggestions on how to deal with the virus can be found there.

Please check this page regularly for the latest information.


VIS(US) specific measures:

We do not allow anyone to use head-mounted displays (HMDs), for example, in the AR/VR labs, because they come with a high danger of virus transmission.

  • We close and lock the students' pools and lab spaces.
  • Any lab user studies that need physical presence of participants have to be postponed.
  • If the closed lab spaces and students' pools interfere with finishing your work in time (e.g. BSc or MSc theses), please contact the examiner so that you can apply for a deadline extension with the examination committee (Prüfungsausschuss).
High-resolution projection system in the Visualisation Laboratory

VISUS owns a large-area projection screen that is able to display about 88 million pixel on an area of 6 metres width and 2 metres height. This powerwall is used for large high-resolution images in 2D and 3D for research issues.
