Chalmers University of Technology

General description of the Institution

Chalmers University of Technology (Chalmers) conducts research and offers education in technology, science, shipping and architecture with a sustainable future as its global vision. Chalmers is well known for providing an effective environment for innovation and has 13 departments. Graphene Flagship, a FET Flagship initiative by the European Commission, is coordinated by Chalmers. Situated in Gothenburg, Sweden, Chalmers has 10,300 full-time students and 3,100 employees.

Description of the institute

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) is shared between Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg, and conducts research and education in many fields: Algorithms, computer architecture, computer security, distributed systems, electronic design, formal methods, interaction design, logic, networking, software technology, software engineering, language technology and reliable computer systems. We offer a large range of courses on undergraduate and postgraduate levels at both universities.

The t2i Lab is a group of Chalmers researchers and graduate students exploring how emerging interactive technologies can benefit problem solving and collaboration. Our research efforts are oriented towards projects within TOMOCON, Autonomous Systems and Software (WASP), Collaboration (MERCO), and Motion Capture (with Qualisys AB). In November 2017, our lab was the organizer of the ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology, VRST 2017.
