The Immersive and Creative Technologies lab (ICT lab) was established in late 2011 as a premier research lab, committed to fostering academic excellence, groundbreaking research, and innovative solutions within the field of Computer Science. Our talented team of researchers concentrate on specialized areas such as computer vision, computer graphics, virtual/augmented reality, and creative technologies, while exploring their applications across a diverse array of disciplines. At the ICT Lab, we strive to achieve ambitious long-term objectives that are centered around the development of highly realistic virtual environments. Our primary objectives include (a) creating virtual worlds that are virtually indistinguishable from the real-world locations they represent, and (b) employing these sophisticated digital twins to produce a wide range of impactful visualizations for various applications. Through our dedication to academic rigor, inventive research, and creative problem-solving, we aim to propel the boundaries of technological innovation and contribute to the advancement of human knowledge.
