Eurographics is the only truly Europe-wide professional Computer Graphics association. The association supports its members in advancing the state of the art in Computer Graphics and related fields such as Multimedia, Scientific Visualization and Human Computer Interfaces. Through a world-wide membership, EG maintains close links with developments in the US, Japan and other countries, promoting the exchange of scientific and technical information and skills on a global scale.
Eurographics organises many different activities and services for its members, who include researchers, developers, educators and those who work in the computer graphics industry, both as users and providers of computer graphics hardware, software, and applications. The events and services of the Association are available to everyone. Note, however, that members of Eurographics are entitled to reductions on books, workshop and conference fees, and the services of associated or affiliated organizations, so you might want to look at additional information on the Association.
