Computer Graphics International is one of the oldest international annual conferences in Computer Graphics and one of the most important ones worldwide, founded by the Computer Graphics Society (CGS). It is a yearly meeting where academics present their latest algorithms, models and technologies, and explore new trends and ideas on various computer graphics topics. Since 1983 it has been held in numerous different cities worldwide including Geneva, Tokyo, Yokohama, Sydney, Boston, Singapore and many different countries in Europe, Asia, Australia and North & South America. CGI’19, the 36th annual conference will take place on June 17th – June 20th 2019 in beautiful Calgary, Canada at the foothills of majestic Canadian Rockies. CGI 2019 is organized in cooperation with ACM SIGGRAPH and Eurographics.

CGI 2019 acknowledges with gratitude support obtained from Alberta Innovates

CGI 2019 is organized in cooperation with ACM SIGGRAPH and Eurographics. The scientific program of the conference will include full and short papers. The selected full papers will be published in the Visual Computer Journal (impact factor 1.09) by Springer-Verlag. Other accepted papers will be included in the CGI conference proceedings published by LNCS, Springer. For information on paper submission, please consult For Authors web page.

Note that the review process is double blind, which requires the paper and all supplemental materials to be anonymous. Ensure that self-referencing is anonymous (refer to your full name rather than “I” or “we”). Avoid providing information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgements (e.g. co-workers and grant IDs) and in the supplemental material (e.g. titles in the movies, or attached papers). Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors. Violation of any of these guidelines will lead to rejection without review.

We invite original contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in topics related to:

  • Rendering Techniques
  • Geometric Computing
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality
  • Shape and Surface Modeling
  • Physically Based Modeling
  • Computer Vision for Computer Graphics
