Jonas Bruschke
Jonas Bruschke presented the HistStadt4D project and current research questions at the 22nd International Conference on 3D Web Technology (Web3D).

The conference, which was being held from 5-7 June 2017 in Brisbane, Australia, unites researchers, developers, entrepreneurs, experimenters, artists and content creators in a dynamic learning environment. It also focuses on recent trends in interactive 3D graphics, information integration and usability in the wide range of Web3D applications from mobile devices to high-end immersive environments. Keynote speakers included Blair MacIntyre (Principal Research Scientist, Mozilla, and Professor of Interactive Computing, Georgia Tech) and Neil Trevett (President, Khronos Group).

This year's conference has been accompanied by a VR Hackathon, where participants could develope 3D applications with focus on virtual reality and immersive environments.

Sebastian Gassel

On May, 2nd 2017, the Dresden Transport Museum opened its new permanent exhibition "Cast off!" about seafaring. Once again the Drematrix group was asked to create an interactive installation for the exhibition.

At the regatta, the visitor is placed in the position of a constructor and can design his own ships and launch them on different routes.

HTW Junior Researcher Prize for Motion Analysis in Music Therapy

Loreen Pogrzeba

I've received the Junior Researcher Prize of the HTW Dresden for my research in the analysis and visualization of therapeutic effect in function-oriented music therapy. As part of my PhD project Markerless Motion Analysis in Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine I evaluate the motion data of patients with Parkinson's disease and after stroke in function-oriented music therapy (FMT) and compare them with a healthy group.

I am very happy about this award and would like to cordially thank all those involved: My PhD supervisors Prof. Markus Wacker and Prof. Bernhard Jung, Thomas Neumann, the DREMATRIX computer graphics group, the working students, the music therapists, especially Margareta Ericsson and Karina Larsson from the FMT Behandlingscenter and all patients.

Zwinger 3D: Project successfully finished

Stefanie Gassel
We recently completed the project "Back to the Future: Zwinger 3D": Ten time frames of the 300-year history of the Dresden Zwinger were reconstructed in 3D. Previously, these time frames were created in 3D in an elaborate research phase with modeling tools. The aim of the project was the finalization of the ten selected time frames.
