Education Programme

The Fifth Education Track, part of the programme of Eurographics 2009, will be held on March 31 (afternoon) and  April 1 (morning), 2009. The goal of the meeting is to present experiences and discuss new ideas regarding educational issues in the broad field of computer graphics, visual computing and related disciplines.

We are seeking high quality, original contributions, for presentation during the conference and publication in the Education papers proceedings. We also seek panel proposals aiming to present different points of view on topics relevant for graphics oriented education.


We invite submissions related to, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • teaching computer graphics in a computer science curriculum;
  • exploiting visual tools to teach other disciplines;
  • teaching graphics programming;
  • designing curricula for computer graphics and related disciplines (e.g., image processing and computer vision);
  • experimenting educational programs mixing computer graphics with other disciplines;
  • teaching computer graphics in curricula other then computer science;
  • setting up collaborative development tools for visual computing;
  • development of video games as a way to teach computer graphics;
  • teaching the mathematical foundations of computer graphics and related disciplines.
