 Briefly describe your organisation
R&D at the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences - Institute for Creative Media / Technologies:

Digital media technologies have spread through and affect virtually every aspect of our everyday lives: from science to industry, personal to business contexts, as well as for individuals, communities, and society as a whole. But ultimately its not about the technology itself, its about what humans can do with technology. Considering this exposure, it is even more important to strive for a deep understanding of the effective design, creation, use, and impact of these technologies.

We are devoted to this endeavor and conduct human-centered interdisciplinary research on timebased media and interactive technologies to strengthen our academic programs and to advance science. Our application domains are determined by the study programs in media and digital technologies and encompass digital health care, industry 4.0, audio/video and creative industries. The research institute is structured into three research groups with a team of 30+ researchers.

The expertise of the researchers lies in media technology, media information science, media design and media arts and it is supplemented by partners from other institutes such as the communication and information sectors and institutions dedicated to tourism or the economy, further eduction, entertainment or arts and culture. The skills are grouped into the following 3 research groups:
**) Media Creation Research Group
**) Media Computing Research Group
**) Digital Technologies Research Group

 RTD Experience

The ICM/T conducts human-centred interdisciplinary research on time-based media and interactive technologies to strengthen the academic programmes and to advance science. Our application domains are defined by the study programmes of the department and encompass digital health care, industry 4.0, audio/video and creative industries. The research institute is structured into three research groups.

Media Creation Research Group
The group carries out interdisciplinary audio-visual research on user-oriented media environments and examines multiple aspects of production processes on a wide range of media, including film, television, internet and mobile. The group’s scope extends to an active exploration of multi-channel experiences and narratives for exhibitions, museums as well as events in public spaces and is actively working on adaptable concepts for distribution, archiving and commercial exploitation of digital contents.

Media Computing Research Group
The group performs basic and applied research on the design, development and evaluation of interactive multimedia systems and investigates the consequences of their use. The main research topics are human computer interaction, game design, information visualization, visual analytics, auditory display, multimedia signal processing, computer vision and multimedia retrieval.

Digital Technologies Research Group
The group focuses on applied research topics in the areas of human computer interaction (HCI) with special competences in the field of ‘sensing and feedback’, interactive environments & workflows and technology assessment & evaluation. Moreover, the group specializes in rapid prototyping of hardware and software for a range of different real-world application scenarios.
