The researcher will take the position of Assistant Secretary for a period of two years, after which he will be Secretary of an association that “supports the state-of-the-art in Computer Graphics and related areas such as Multimedia, Scientific Visualisation and Human-Computer Interfaces”. For Miguel Melo, the biggest challenge “will be to increase the visibility and influence of the (Portuguese) group within Eurographics and, consequently, in the ecosystem of computer graphics research at an European level”.
Miguel Melo, researcher of the MASSIVE Virtual Reality Laboratory, believes that “there is an increasing visibility of the works that are conducted in Portugal aiming at improving Computer Graphics, including Image Creation and Visualisation in order to face new challenges in areas such as Immersive Environments, Digital Games and User Experience”, like the works conducted at CSIG and at MASSIVE.
