PhD Student Positions in the Field of Geometric Wavelets and 3D Graphics, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Belgium

The Ambient Multimedia group is a research cluster within the Image Processing research group (IRIS) of the Department of Electronics and Informatics (ETRO) of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).
The core focus of IRIS is on digital image processing. The specific goals of the group are to develop original Fundamental Research, continued in Strategic Research up to a stage where the results – when exploited – have a real impact on society, and Applied Research, reflected by prototypes, products and services.

IRIS is a also a department of the Interdisciplinary Institute for BroadBand Technologies (IBBT - www.ibbt.be) and an associated laboratory of The Interuniversity Microelectronics Center (IMEC - www.imec.be). IRIS is involved in fundamental research on one hand as well as in strategic and applied R&D activities via IBBT and IMEC on the other hand.

IRIS has three open PhD-student positions in the field of employing geometric wavelets for scalable encoding of 3D graphics, addressing three major goals:

1. advance the state-of-the-art by designing a new 3D surface representation and scalable coding system;
2. optimize the resource management for such systems;
3. investigate the deployment on Multi-Processor System-on-Chip platforms.

Good programming skills in C/C++, good knowledge in signal processing/wavelets and embedded systems are desirable.
