Hauptseminar/Master Seminar:
Medical AR, Visualization, and Simulation Environments

SWS: 2+0
ECTS: 4 Credits
Course Language: English
Prerequisites: passion and enthusiasm
Registration: maximum of 30 students
General questions: contact Pascal Fallavollita

* Final Presenrtations this Friday January 30, at 1:00pm in the seminar room.
* Registration on TUM Online is completed

The seminar will begin with an emphasis on the basic prose style for writing an excellent literature review and dissemination of experimental results. Students will then be separated into small groups and work towards the submission of a complete literature review on one of the selected research topics below.

The seminar will cover the following selected topics:

  • Medical Augmented Reality technologies and HMDs
  • User Interfaces & Range Imaging Sensors
  • Multimodal Visualization
  • Medical Simulation Environments


  • Final grades will be determined on the quality of the literature review submission (50%) and the final oral presentation (50%).
  • Literature review: 10 pages
  • Oral presentation: 15 minutes
  • Mandatory attendance since the course is held every 2 weeks.

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.
