Martin Held

I am "außerordentlicher Universitätsprofessor" for computer science here at the Universität Salzburg, Salzburg, Austria. In addition, I have an appointment as adjunct associate professor at the AMS Dept. of Stony Brook University Stony Brook, USA; see the homepage of the Computational Geometry Lab at SUNYSB.

How to Reach My Office

Please see my WWW page on driving directions and maps.

Research Interests

Research Projects

I am the head of the Computational Geometry and Applications Lab within the "Visual Computing and Multimedia" Research Group at our department. (At present, I'm also the head of the entire VCM research group.) I have recently started to assemble a few pages with short descriptions of (or color images related to) some of the application-oriented research projects which my students and I have (or had been) working on. This WWW presentation of current and previous research projects is work in progress; please bear with me (and check back to see whether I've already gotten around to adding new stuff).

Teaching, Courses and Office Hours

Local students are invited to browse through a few announcements related to my teaching. (Folks, be warned that some of these pages are in German!).

Applications by Foreign Students

Students from abroad who are interested in pursuing an MSc or PhD degree with me as their advisor are kindly asked to check out my information on choosing me as MSc/PhD advisor prior to sending requests or applications to me.

My Family

I am married to Olga Held-Siratska. Olga is a pediatrist ("Facharzt für Kinder- und Jugendheilkunde") and runs her own medical practice ("Kinderarztpraxis") in Salzburg. Our son Alexander Georg was born in early March 2007. (The photo shows him at the age of about nine months; as you can see, he is keen on experimenting with rigidity theory and polyhedral combinatorics!) You are welcome to check my private stuff for humorous entries and links to rock climbing.
