The Immersive and Creative Technologies lab was founded in late 2011 and since its establishment it has been focusing on fundamental and applied research in the areas of computer vision, computer graphics, virtual/augmented reality and creative technologies, and their application in a wide range of fields.
More specifically, the long term objectives of the research at the ICT Lab are to create (a) virtual worlds which are indistinguishable [in all aspects] from the real-world areas they represent and, (b) visualizations employing these realistic virtual worlds for a wide range of applications.
The ICT lab is part of the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science at Concordia University.
