Welcome to the Multimedia Computing and Computer Vision Lab at the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Augsburg. The Multimedia Computing and Computer Vision Lab focuses on the theory and all computational aspects of multimedia and multimodal data processing, especially on detection, recognition and mining. Current lines of research include image/video content analysis such as object detection and recognition of, for instance, brands and products in social networks, human parsing in images/videos/sensor signals such as for instance pose estimation of world-class athletes, machine learning for multi-modal data, and the automatic reassembly of shredded documents, which has to deal with graphical, pictorial, textual and other contents in paper documents all at once.

Our Courses during the summer term 2019:


  • Multimedia Projekt
  • Forschungsmodul Multimedia Computing (please contact us directly)
  • Praxismodul Multimedia Computing (please contact us directly)
