Helwig Hauser graduated in 1995 from Vienna University of Technology in Austria and in 1998 he finished his PhD project on the visualization of complex dynamical systems (flow visualization). In 2003, he got his Habilitation at TU Wien, entitled ''Generalizing Focus+Context Visualization''. His research has been repeatedly awarded, including the Heinz-Zemanek Award by OCG and the Dirk Bartz Prize for Visual Computing in Medicine from Eurographics. With about 200 refereed publications and close to 10,000 citations (h-index > 50), he is an active and respected member of the international visualization community. After first working for TU Wien as assistant and later as assistant professor (1994–), he changed to the VRVis Research Center in 2000 (having been one of the founding team), where he led the basic research group on interactive visualization until 2003 before he became the scientific director of VRVis. Since 2007, he is professor in visualization at the University of Bergen in Norway, where he built up a new research group on visualization.
