In the project semester, students of the bachelor degree programme Media Technology as well as EPS students work exclusively on one project for three months. They self-responsibly implement their own ideas as a team and go through the entire project cycle, from the initial brainstorming to the development of a prototype.

In the interim presentations, they provide insights into the ongoing work as well as the first interim results, thus allowing teachers, fellow students and an interested audience to gain an impression of the diversity and professionalism of the project contributions.

(Including the annual general meeting of the Austrian section of the International Audio Engineering Society), talks, presentations & installations.

The sixth edition of the All Around Audio Symposium discusses current trends and developments from the perspectives of sound and music.

The symposium is not only addressed to industry experts but encourages researchers and designers from other fields in particular to participate in identifying new transdisciplinary intersections and fields of interest for future collaborations. It also serves as a networking opportunity.

Consortium meeting research project Mixed Reality-Based Collaboration 4 Industry - cancelled

  • Contact: Thomas Moser | Head of Digital Technologies Research Group, Department of Media and Digital Technologies

Mixed Reality (Augmented and Virtual Reality – AR/VR, MR in short) offers different sectors of industry new possibilities for visualising data. Funded within the FFG programme Collective Research, about 25 business partners from different sectors contribute use cases in four thematic clusters.

The goal of the project is to create a framework for all use cases as well as prototypes for the individual use cases. This includes technically implementing and evaluating the prototypes as well as assessing their acceptance and potential impact on the working environment. In addition, existing MR hardware is assessed with regard to how well suited it is for use in industry and also made available to industrial partners during the course of the project.

Consortium meeting research project Immersive Media Lab

Thursday, 26 November 2020

  • 10:00 – 13:00
  • virtual
  • Contact: Franziska Bruckner | Head of Media Creation Research Group, Department of Media and Digital Technologies

The Immersive Media Lab provides a platform for interdisciplinary projects in order to offer space and equipment for Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) initiatives. This will allow  for the consolidation and further development of existing knowledge on techniques and workflows, and generate new knowledge in AR/VR.

One focus of the project is on its approaches to storytelling, which can be considered an essential matter in art but also enjoys increasing importance in science. Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) offer not only future-oriented interfaces between industrial application and artistic research but also the opportunity to develop new dimensions of storytelling.

Exploring the Future of Current Challenges with Augmented and Virtual Reality

Digital collaboration, continuous innovation, and the augmentation of reality are major buzzwords of our times. As growth to infinity and beyond is often the main goal, we sometimes forget about the social and environmental impact we need to address in our projects.

XChange Reality! means DO SOMETHING! What actually has the power to change your reality? When will the future be GLAMorous again? How do we intend to create and sustain our urban and regional environment? Can Mixed Reality (XR) help us address current challenges or even find new solutions for the future? What we want to identify with you is this: what are these current challenges? What could new solutions for the future look like?

Originally planned as a "normal" conference from 27 to 30 April, the major part of the event took place online due to the restrictions related to Covid-19. However, the posters & demos session, which was not possible in April, will be carried out within the framework of the 3rd International Conference on Creative\Media/Technologies.

Graduate Consortium

Graduate Consortium_IConCMT_Logo.jpg

  • 14:00 – 17:30
  • virtual
  • Contact: Grischa Schmiedl | Deputy Academic Director Digital Media Technologies & Interactive Technologies

Within the framework of the Graduate Consortium, students of the master degree study programmes Digital Design, Digital Production, and Interactive Media present the topics of their diploma theses in the form of a poster presentation. After an introductory 30-second pitch, where the presenters can outline their ideas, there will be enough time for the visitors and students to discuss the individual topics in detail. Feedback as well as content-related advice are very welcome at this early stage of the students’ theses.
