PhD on Perception Management of Future Immersive Multimodal Applications
We offer a very challenging full-time position in an inspiring, flexible, and very dynamic environment. You will join a young and enthusiastic team of developers, researchers, post-docs, and professors. You will receive a competitive salary.
We currently have one position for a PhD student to support our research track on Perception Management of Immersive Multimodal Applications. Multimodal, immersive systems are the latest development within the field of multimedia. These systems emulate the senses by means of omni-directional visuals, 360° sound, motion tracking and touch simulation to create a strong feeling of presence in and interaction with the virtual environment. These experiences can be applied to a wide variety of immersive applications such as tele-presence, remote learning and training, immersive spaces, remote collaboration, and entertainment, ranging from Virtual and Augmented Reality experiences to fully immersive holographic-type communication.
Given the rather strong time and task sensitiveness of these applications, it is of great importance to sustain the end-user perceived quality, i.e. the Quality-of-Experience (QoE), at all times. Desynchronization and quality degradation need to be reduced to a minimum to avoid feelings of cyber-sickness or loss of immersiveness and concentration. Moreover, aspects such as cybersickness, presence or perception of time will play a bigger role than for traditional video applications. To understand and keep up with the users’ perception requirements, there is a need for real-time perception management. In it, the users’ experience is monitored, assessed, and enhanced during the immersive session.
In this project, the candidate will work on solutions for immersive perception management on topics that include (but are not limited to) the following:
Research group and timing
The candidate will be supervised by Prof. Filip De Turck and work at IDLab, a core research group at the Department of Information Technology, Ghent University. Our group performs fundamental and applied research on data science and Internet technology, and is, with over 300 researchers, one of the larger research groups at imec. Imec, in its turn, is the world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies. By leveraging a world-class research infrastructure and local and global ecosystem of partners across a multitude of industries, innovation is created in application domains such as healthcare, smart cities, logistics, manufacturing, and energy.
The candidate will reside in the iGent building, Technologiepark-Zwijnaarde 126, 9052 Ghent.
Tentative starting period: early 2022. The position is valid for one year and can be extended to a maximum of four years. Visit this page for more information about PhD studies at Ghent University.
