The Centre for Visual and Immersive Computing (CVIC) focuses on regional and international dimensions of knowledge/technology innovation, application and practice development, academic networking, and social service innovation. It investigates research concepts, algorithms and systems in VIV domains for the development of seamless communication mechanisms between humans and computer systems. Examples include the use of image processing to detect security threats from CCTV and the application of cognitive and engineering psychology to facilitate human behaviour in socio-technical systems. The vision of the centre for the next 5 years can be summarised as:

  • Establishing a shared research vision and strengthening a united team spirit
  • Forming a long-term and sustainable research strategy
  • Developing collaborative and interdisciplinary research initiatives
  • Nurturing early career researchers and postgraduate students


The impact of our research into computer vision, computer architecture, and software engineering falls into 3 distinct areas: Social security and crime detection; Knowledge engineering; and Data visualisation.


Providing the best research environment facilitates top class research. We provide a range of measures to ensure this:
