    About 50% of the patients consulting a gastroenterology clinic report symptoms without detectable cause. Clinical researchers are interested in analyzing the volumetric evolution of colon segments under the effect of ...
  • Introducing semi-open learning/teaching into fundamental programming subjects 

    Xhafa Xhafa, Fatos; Marco Gómez, Jordi; Vázquez Alcocer, Pere Pau (Universitat de Barcelona. Edicions i Publicacions, 2006)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Due to the development of Internet applications, semi-open learning is increasingly being introduced into traditional face-to-face learning and teaching. In several engineering degrees many subjects are developed using a ...
  • Improving perception accuracy in bar charts with internal contrast and framing enhancements 

    Díaz Iriberri, José; Meruvia Pastor, Oscar; Vázquez Alcocer, Pere Pau (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Bar charts are among the most commonly used visualization graphs. Their main goal is to communicate quantities that can be visually compared. Since they are easy to produce and interpret, they are found in any situation ...
  • Improving perception of molecular surface visualizations by incorporating translucency effects 

    Hermosilla Casajús, Pedro; Maisch, Sebastian; Vázquez Alcocer, Pere Pau; Ropinski, Timo (European Association for Computer Graphics (Eurographics), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Molecular surfaces are a commonly used representation in the analysis of molecular structures as they provide a compact description of the space occupied by a molecule and its accessibility. However, due to the high ...
  • Using computer-supported collaborative work in fundamental programming subjects 

    Xhafa Xhafa, Fatos; Vázquez Alcocer, Pere Pau; Marco Gómez, Jordi; Martín Prat, Àngela (Universitat de Girona, 2004)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Fundamental Programming subjects are compulsory for several technical engineering degrees. Typical face-to-face teaching may cause a lack of continuous learning and support for students, as teachers are only available at ...
  • GL-Socket: A CG plugin-based framework for teaching and assessment 

    Andújar Gran, Carlos Antonio; Chica Calaf, Antonio; Fairén González, Marta; Vinacua Pla, Álvaro (European Association for Computer Graphics (Eurographics), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper we describe a plugin-based C++ framework for teaching OpenGL and GLSL in introductory Computer Graphics courses. The main strength of the framework architecture is that student assignments are mostly independent ...
