About the PIXELvienna Conference
PIXELvienna is the Annual Austrian Computer Graphics and Animation Conference taking place in the beautiful setting of Vienna. Providing international perspectives, talks and workshops in all fields of computer graphics, PIXELvienna also presents the SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival and the legendary PIXEL Battle & Party. Recently added to the program, is the Austrian CG Award.
Every year, PIXELvienna invites well-known national and international computer graphics, computer games and computer film professionals to present their work. In the past eight years artists, producers, and directors from very diverse backgrounds shared their passion and knowledge.
PIXELvienna arose from the drive to connect Computer Graphics professionals and to build a community to share experience and knowledge. While PIXELvienna grew over the past years, the original idea is still the same.
PIXELvienna is entirely organized and operated by the Austrian CG community, a team of volunteers who deliberately work all year to make the conference an unforgettable experience for all attendees. Being an international event, the official conference language is English only.
In 2014 we decided to rename the conference from simply “PIXEL” to “PIXELvienna” in order to further underline the great location of this conference an prevent confusion with similary named conferences.
