 +On October 12, 2018, the kick-off meeting for the new BMBF-funded project AVATAR took place at the Faculty of Computer Science at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. Under the direction of Jun.-Prof. Dr. Christian Hansen, AVATAR will investigate new interaction and visualization techniques for virtual training of surgeons. The University Hospital Mainz, the Harvard Medical School in Boston, the research campus STIMULATE and the companies metratec and 2tainment are involved as project partners. The project will be funded by the BMBF with 1.6 million euros over the next three years.

 +Patrick Saalfeld has submitted his Phd thesis "3D User Interfaces for Interventional Support and Medical Education" summarizing his work on spatial interaction techniques and devices to support medical treatment planning and education. The developed interaction techniques used on immersive systems resulted in several prices including the Eurographics Medical Price, MedVis-Award and the ElbeDome Award. Patrick's work was funded by a fellowship from Sachsen-Anhalt and within the BMWi project "Virtual Anatomy".

 +On May, 24th the ElbeDome (Europe’s largest 3D mixed reality laboratory) was reopened after modernization. For this event, applications demonstrating the capabilities of the ElbeDome could be submitted. 
 +The team of Benjamin Behrendt, Lisa Piotrowski, and Patrick Saalfeld (alphabetical order) developed the VR application "Inside Circulus arteriosus". Here, the user is able to explore the Circle of Willis comprising its arteries, blood flow and surrounding skull.
 +Their submission was awarded with the 2nd place.<html><br></html>
