The Interactive Geometry Lab is a research group within the Institute of Visual Computing of ETH Zurich, led by Prof. Olga Sorkine-Hornung. We do research in Computer Graphics, focusing on interactive shape modeling and animation, digital geometry processing, as well as image and video processing. Prospective researchers are welcome to contact us.


Olga Sorkine-Hornung was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure :-) ETH news announcement...
