Expertise Centre for Digital Media (EDM)
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.
