GRAPP is organized by INSTICC - Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication.

Locally Organized and Hosted by Université d'Angers and ISTIA, École d'Ingénieurs de l'Université d'Angers en Génie des Systèmes Industriels.


The International Conference on Computer Graphics Theory and Applications (GRAPP) aims at becoming a major point of contact between researchers, engineers and practitioners in Computer Graphics. The conference will be structured along four main tracks, covering different aspects related to Computer Graphics, from Modelling to Rendering, including Animation and Interactive Environments.
We welcome papers describing original work in any of the areas listed below. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques as well as general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Paper acceptance will be based on quality, relevance to the conference themes and originality. The conference program will include both oral and poster presentations. 
Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged. Companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in lecturing a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.


Each of these topic areas is expanded below. Papers should address one or more of the listed topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related topics are also allowed.

The conference will be held in the University of Angers. Angers is the capital of the historic province of Anjou and is considered one of the most beautiful cities in France with its old streets, museums, gardens, gastronomic restaurants and art festivals. Angers is located in western France in the Loire Valley well known by its chateaux, just 2h30 by motorway and 1h30 by high-speed train from Paris.


All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a LCNS Series book.
The proceedings will be indexed by Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC and DBLP.
EI already agreed to index the proceedings of GRAPP 2006, 2007 and 2008. Proceedings of GRAPP 2009 are under evaluation and the proceedings of GRAPP 2010 will be evaluated by EI after their publication.
