What is Computer Graphics Society



The computer graphics society (CGS) is an international, professional society whose purpose is to promote advances in computer graphics by exchanging ideas to find innovative solutions. It is an international non-profit-making association, run by volunteers, that is at the service of its members.

CGS invites researchers across the whole world to share their passion, experiences and novel achievements in various fields - like computer graphics and human-computer interaction.

CGS was formally founded in Geneva in 1992 by:
Prof. Rae Earnshaw
University of Bradford, UK

Prof. Tosiyasu L.Kunii
Hosei University, Kanazawa Institute of Technology, University of Bradford, The University of Tokyo

Prof. Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann President of CGS
MIRALab, University of Geneva, Switzerland, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Prof. Daniel Thalmann
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, EPFL, Switzerland

CGS has founded 4 conferences:
Computer Graphics International (CGI)
Computer Animation and Social Agents (CASA), formerly named Computer Animation (CA)
Pacific Graphics (PG)
MultiMedia Modeling (MMM)

Currently, two conferences are organized each year by the Computer Graphics Society:
The Computer Graphics International conference (CGI) that was founded in 1983 by Prof. Tosiyasu L. Kunii in Tokyo, Japan
Computer Graphics International (CGI) is one of the oldest annual international conferences on computer graphics. It is organized by the Computer Graphics Society (CGS).
