GraVisMa workshop is a unique forum for researchers, practitioners, developers and academia experts to discuss new approaches and methods in Computer Graphics, Computer Vision, Scientific Computation, Scientific, Medical and Information Visualization with application of the latest developments in Mathematics and Physics. 

Goals of the GraVisMa workshops is to bring theory of the Projective Geometry, Geometric Algebra and Conformal Geometry to practice especially in the fields related to Computer Graphics and Vision, Scientific Computation and Visualization.

GraVisMa workshop will bring new impulses to related fields of computer science, especially in development of new approaches and algorithms and will stimulate research activities between mathematicians and computer science experts.

Informal atmosphere of the GraVisMa workshops will stimulate scientific discussions between researchers and practitioners, that will lead to further research international collaborations and projects proposals as well.

GraVisMa 2009 workshop was held in Plzen (Pilsen) city

  • Plzen city is very historical and cultural city, famous of invention of a unique beer technology used worldwide, nowadays.
  • You can find many historical places including the second largest synagogue in Europe, Rotunda from the 10st. century, historical underground.
  • Plzen has a very good and frequent connection pro Praha (Prague), the Golden European city [approx. 60 mins.]

GraVisMa workshops offer not only scientific and cultural opportunities, but also unique opportunity to taste the Pilsner Urquell beer - the best beer all over the world.
