We develop novel simulation models and algorithms in computer graphics. We often combine them with optimization methods to produce design solutions in various settings: clinical applications, computational fabrication, virtual touch, or fashion. We aim to bridge the real and the virtual, producing simulation results of stunning quality that allow us to understand and design reality. Check our web page.

The MSLab at URJC Madrid will participate in 3 exciting projects in the network of RAINBOW. All 3 projects will share some common grounds:
This project will research computational methods for the design of personalized clinical devices. We wish to provide solutions for this complex task that maximize automation and ease of use. This will encompass the design of methods to infer biomechanical models directly from medical images, development of fast-simulation approximations of biomechanics, and definition of optimization algorithms that search the space of device designs. In addition, the solutions will include intuitive interfaces for design specification.
Scoliosis brace design will be our reference example, including others.
Check our previous research on computational design methods for flexible objects:
This project is inspired by the ambition of empowering clinicians with the ability to inspect and interact with medical volume images (CT-scans or MRIs) in a tangible manner, much like they would do with a physical body. The project will cover efficient yet accurate biomechanical models to enable interactive manipulation and topological changes to medical images, as well as tangible interaction methods. The result will allow users to manipulate such medical images directly with their hands.
Tangible manipulation and cutting operations on touchscreens will be the reference example.
This work will build on our knowledge on efficient deformation models and tangible interaction methods:
PhD course on data driven modelling of mechanical systems. Including parameter estimation from imaging as well as numerical optimization methods.
Madrid, 8-11 April 2019
All attendees should bring their own laptop, with the following installation:
Operating system: Windows 10/8/7 (or another recent version).
- Unity3D: Go here and download the installer for Windows.
- Visual Studio Community 2017: Installed with Unity3D
- Python 3 + Anaconda: During the installation of Visual Studio, modify the settings and select Python Tools.
The course will take place at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Móstoles Campus, Calle Tulipán s/n, Spain. Be aware that Universidad Rey Juan Carlos has 4 different campuses in Madrid. Please, make sure you go to the one located in Móstoles (a suburb of Madrid).
We strongly recommend staying in downtown Madrid and taking the metro or a taxi to get to Móstoles Campus. Here is a list of hotels, all close to each other, located in downtown Madrid and along the metro line that goes to the University.
Móstoles Campus is next to the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos metro station.See walking route and map.
You can buy single trip tickets or get a ten trip ticket:
*Single bus tickets can be bought on board in cash.
