Scholarship Description:

Computer and System Sciences Position for Postgraduate Students in Sweden is open for . The scholarship allows level programm(s) in the field of taught at . The deadline of the scholarship is .

Computer and System Sciences Position, The available position targets research in the field of multidimensional imaging and communication. In particular, the aim of the research is to produce a light field communication test bed and explore the consequences on processing, distribution and presentation by utilizing a large number of cameras of different types and visualizing captured data in different ways. The research will address problems related to collaborating cameras; transferring the data to another location; and/or computing improvements to depth maps, resolutions, and signals based on redundant captured information, in order to produce consistent virtual views on the receiver side based on data interpolation and geometric projections. This research will be pursued in close cooperation with industrial partners.

The candidate is expected to pursue theoretical and experimental research. The research is a part of the profile area of Industrial IT and digital services at Mid Sweden University, and it will be carried out in collaboration with other researchers in the research group Realistic 3D, part of the STC Research Centre.
