The Max Planck Center for Visual Computing and Communication (MPC-VCC) was established by the German Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science (MPG) and Stanford University in October 2003 recognizing the high potential of a mutually beneficial cooperation between Stanford and MPG in the field of Visual Computing and Communication and recognizing the desire of the scientists of the parties to conduct joint research. The center has two goals: 1. Establish a joint research program in the key information technology area of “Visual Computing and Communication” 2. Incorporate a strong career development component to alleviate the shortage of qualified faculty and scientists in information technology in Germany.
