I’m reporting live from Eurographics 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal and I have got some exciting news for you! Since 2011, every year the Eurographics association awards the Best PhD Thesis Award to the theses with the highest quality and impact. The awarded researchers so far were mainly specialized in computer graphics and geometric modeling. Until now, that is, since this year, one of these highly prestigious award goes to….

I apologize for the delay in reporting this, but I heard about/attended three great medical visualization PhD defenses late 2014:
- Dr. Mathias Goldau successfully defended his PhD at the University of Leipzig. His thesis is entitled ‘Multi-modal and Slice-based Visualizations of Diffusion Tractography Data’ and you may or may not already be familiar with his work on OpenWalnut, an open source tool for multi-modal medical and brain data visualization. The full text of the thesis can be downloaded here or take a look at his publications here.
- Dr. Peter Kok successfully defended his PhD at the Technical University of Delft. In his thesis, ‘Integrative Visualization of Whole Body Molecular Imaging Data‘, Dr. Kok present methods to map molecular imaging data to a common reference frame, to combine multiple modalities and to compare scans taken at different timepoints. The full text of the thesis is available here.
- On the same day, Dr. Stef Busking successfully defended his PhD at the Technical University of Delft as well. His thesis, ‘Visualization of Variation and Variability‘ deals with comparative visualization as a means to analyze variation or variability based on two or more specific instances of the data. The full text of the thesis is available here.
Congratulations to all three doctors!
