Course objectives
The student will gain a deeper knowledge about a chosen field of computer graphics or image processing while working on one of the more complex projects solved in the Laboratory of Human-Computer Interactions or Laboratory of Optical Microscopy, respectively, and will apply this knowledge during the work on a team R&D project. This will strengthen the student's capability of analyzing real-world problems in the given field, finding suitable solutions and working in a scientific team.
Learning outcomes
During their doctoral studies students
- will learn to look for open research problems;
- will know select adequate research methods, theoretical and experimental;
- will practise in writing, presenting and defending their research results;
- will improve their skills working in teams;
- will improve their skills leading small research and development teams;
  • Computer graphics: Efficient mathematical methods and data structures for fast visualization, collision detection in real time (with object distance and intersection depth determination), filtering of position and orientation of data, interpolation and extrapolation of rotations and various specific problems. Principles together with integrated tasks are tested in three basic applications: general manipulation methods in virtual environment, visualization of binding forces between molecules and haptic visualization of 2D and 3D objects.
  • Image processing: Acquisition and evaluation of images of tissues, cells, cell nuclei, chromosomes and genes, usually for the purpose of determination of spatial arrangement of genetic material inside cell nucleus or tracking of the movement of selected cellular components in time. Especially the following methods are employed for this purpose: image filtering, image segmentation, image or object registration and object measurements on a digital grid.

Teaching methods
Consultations and own research and presentation activities based on individual agreement with the supervisor. Students are engaged into the work on large R&D projects with an effort of joining international research infrastructures, such as networks of excellence or other forms of EU framework programmes. Large emphasis is put onto a team work.
Assessment methods
Communication with supervisor in Czech or English, study materials in English. Individual work, final presentation on a lab seminar. This course can be taken repeatedly.
