Hauptseminar/Master Seminar: Mixed Reality Tele-Presence: Technology and Applications in the Medical Domain

Prof. Nassir Navab, Dr. Ulrich Eck, Alexander Winkler, Tianyu Song KevinYu?

Type: Master Seminar Module IN2107
SWS: 2+0
ECTS: 5 Credits
Room: 03.13.010.
Course Language: English


  • 21-04-2021: The introductory meeting will take place on 22.04.2021, 1:00 - 2:00 pm, via Zoom.


Over 30 years ago, researchers already identified the utility of telepresence for supporting medical interventions from afar. With the rise of massively parallel computing architectures, sophisticated AR and VR display devices and modern depth-sensors it is now possible to build high-fidelity telepresence systems that can provide rich context for supporting remote workers. In this seminar, we will cover the basics technologies ranging from 3D real-time reconstruction, network transmission, surface reconstruction, real-time rendering and interaction modalities needed to understand, design and build tele-presence systems that can be used in the medical domain.



In this Master Seminar (formerly Hauptseminar), each student is asked to select one paper from a list. In order to successfully complete the seminar, participants have to fulfill these requirements:

  • Presentation: The selected paper is presented to the other participants (20 minutes presentation 10 minutes questions). Use the CAMP templates for PowerPoint camp-tum-jhu-slides.potx, or Latex: CAMP-latex-template.zip.
  • Written Report: A document of 8 pages is written and submitted two weeks after the presentation. Please download and use the llncs2e.zip Latex template.
  • Attendance: Participants have to participate actively in *all* seminar sessions.

The students are required to attend each seminar presentation which will be held during this course. Each presentation is followed by a discussion and everyone is encouraged to actively participate. The report must include all references used and must be written completely in your own words. Copy and paste will not be tolerated. Both report and presentation have to be done in English.


For questions about the organization or content of the course, please contact Alexander Winkler or Dr. Ulrich Eck via e-mail.

Please go to Moodle for the list of papers.

Literature and Helpful Links

A lot of scientific publications can be found online.

The following list may help you to find some further information on your particular topic:

Some publishers:

Libraries (online and offline):

Some further hints for working with references:

  • JabRef is a Java program for comfortable working with Bibtex literature databases. Handy feature: if you know the PubMed ID for an article, JabRef can import data from there (via "Web Search/Medline").
  • Mendeley is a cross-platform program for organising your references.

If you find useful resources that are not already listed here, please tell us, so we can add them for others. Thanks.
