Outreach & Publications



We present our research not only at university events such as the “Long Night of Science” but aim to educate a broader audience, for example, by contributing to exhibitions such as the presentation of immersive analytics research as part of the ICARUS exhibition on Mainau Island. We are also part of an interdisciplinary and inter-institutional four-semester course “Exhibition Design. Interactive Media for Museums” which teaches students to develop professional, innovative and interactive exhibition concepts. By clicking on the images on the left side you are forwarded to videos about the exhibitions.

School Projects

For many years we have given courses for school students to introduce them to computer science and bioinformatics. Together with Barbara Pampel we recently initiated and run a joint project with the Gymnasium (high school) Überlingen to involve Bachelor/Master students from the university in computer science projects for school students in years 7 to 12. We also do short hands-on courses with primary school students using educational technologies such as Little Bits to introduce the children to computer science in a playful way.




Kim Marriott, Falk Schreiber, Tim Dwyer, Karsten Klein, Nathalie Henry Riche, Takayuki Itoh, Wolfgang Stuerzlinger and Bruce H. Thomas: Immersive Analytics  Springer, 2018.

This book is the first textbook for the novel research area of Immersive Analytics. It clarifies and reviews central aspects of immersive analytics research, its aims, opportunities, historical context, research agenda, as well as technological and psychological immersion. 

Ina Koch, Wolfgang Reisig and Falk Schreiber: Modeling in Systems Biology: The Petri Net Approach Springer, 2011.

This book presents the modelling of biochemical and cellular networks (e.g., metabolism, regulation, signaling) based on Petri net theory. It serves as text book for biologists who want to model biochemical systems using Petri nets as well as for computer scientists who are interested in biological applications of Petri nets.

Björn H. Junker and Falk Schreiber:  Analysis of Biological Networks  Wiley, 2008.

This book presents methods for the analysis of biological networks. The first part introduces network analysis algorithms such as centralities, motifs, clustering and general network properties, and the second part studies the usage of these methods for the investigation of different biological networks ranging from molecular networks (gene regulation, protein interaction, metabolism) to ecological and phylogenetical networks.
