Our paper "Block Crossings in Storyline Visualizations" has received the best paper award at GD'16. The paper is joint work by researchers of our chair, two students from Würzburg and colleagues from California and the Ukraine.
In September, our chair was present at the Workshop on (Constraint) Logic Programming (WLP). Falco Nogatz and Frank Flederer presented their paper, which were done in collaboration with Dietmar Seipel, Ludwig Ostermayer and Sergio Montenegro.
In this year, the chair has two accepted submissions at ACM GIS 2016: a paper on route planning, and another paper on crowdsourcing on historical city maps. The conference takes place in San Francisco in early November.
In the Winter Term 2016/2017, the chair offers a new seminar with the topic "Algorithms for Extracting Data from Old Maps". In the seminar, we will discuss algorithmic approaches for automatically "understanding" such documents.
