In February 2019, a second PhD student (Negin Ghamsarian) joined the OVID project. She will work on surgical workflow analysis and video preprocessing.
Since a third PhD student withdrew her application in a late stage of the hiring process, we decided to conduct the project with only two PhD students for now.
The OVID project officially started on October 1, 2018. The research project is supported by the Austrian Science Fund FWF and is scheduled to run for three years.
The FWF grant supports employment of three PhD students (for 3 years each) and one student assistant (for 15 months). Currently, one PhD student (Natalia Sokolova) and the student assistant (Markus Fox) have taken up their work. The other two PhD students will follow within the next few months.
