Ivelina Alexandrova experiments resulted in the perception in virtual spaces through Los Angeles. Received a special scientific award now Ivelina Alexandrova, student of the degree programme of media and communication science. On one of the most important conferences for graphics and visualization, the APGV in Los Angeles, she has presented her results on Saturday (24.07). The invitation came to the Conference for the 25-year-old MKI student completely surprising. I have never expected that I should present the results there. Finally I have not even completed the studies.” All the more surprising, the decision of the Conference was for the master student jury that she should present their results in the main program of the Conference.
Proposed for the Conference Prof. Many writers such as Dr. Mark Hyman offer more in-depth analysis. Dr. Heinrich Bulthoff of the Max Planck had Institute for biological Cybernetics in Tubingen. At the Hochschule in Reutlingen, she is also maintained by Prof. Dr. Uwe Kloos, who is very happy about the special award for its student. In her speech at the APGV Conference in Los Angeles, Ivelina Alexandrova presented their results from the scientific deepening of their master studies which explored it at the Max Planck Institute for biological Cybernetics in Tubingen.
Students of the degree programme of media and communication science at the Tubingen Institute research already for a long time. Base is a cooperation of the two scientific bodies. Informatics inside that had the American scientist Dr. Betty Mohler the results of cooperation at the Conference”the Faculty of computer science presents. In this group of researchers to Betty Mohler, also the Reutlingen MKI working student. For their experiments, developed and programmed them to a special virtual room, which is a possible exact copy of an existing space at the Institute. In comparative experiments investigated Ivelina Alexandrova, then, as distances in the real world and virtual spaces are perceived and evaluated. The aim of the study: what factors help, which interfere in the perception. Light and shadow are important factors for example to find yourself right in virtual worlds. Still, there are significant differences in perception between virtual and real world? Also Prof. Dr. Uwe Kloos inspired by the Faculty of computer science is about the successful cooperation. Ivelina Alexandrova and he is also involved in the research. The findings jointly developed with the Tubingen Institute now find a such great attention, shows his opinion that the degree programme of media and communication information is also in the scientific field in a good way.
