Research Group

Main organisation:Computer Sciences
Lifecycle:1 Jan 1990  →  Today
Organisation profile:

The EDM performs research in Information and Communication Technology (ICT), with a mind for possible applications in industry or society.

The core competence areas of EDM are:

  • Visual Computing, with special attention to image and video based visualization, modeling, rendering and animation
  • Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), investigating multi-modal interaction in 3D virtual environments, context-sensitive and adaptive user interfaces, interactive collaborative workspaces, model-based user interfaces and finally user-centered software engineering;
  • Multimedia networking, situated mainly in networked virtual environments, large scale virtual communities and interactive multimedia systems.


The EDM participates in iMinds, the Flemish Strategic Research Centre for ICT.
