PIXELvienna is the Austrian Conference on Computer Graphics, Animation and Games taking place every autumn in the beautiful city of Vienna. The event offers talks and workshops with international professionals from the divergent and broad field of computer graphics. Our goal is to connect people, give insights and showcase inspirational practitioners.
This year, we will not be able to hold our event on-site, this means the conference will take place online. Nevertheless, we will stream from this year’s partner location, the University of Applied Arts Vienna, and there will be possibilities to communicate live with the speakers and the PIXELvienna organizers. Being an international event, the official conference language is English.
Since 2006, PIXELvienna Society has featured well-known national and international professionals from the fields of computer graphics, computer games and computer film to present their work.
