Registration for the Graphical Visionday can be done here no later than 14 May. The registration fee includes participation in the lectures, exhibition, proceedings, refreshments, and lunch.
For members of the Danish Automation Society (DAu), the Danish Robotics Society (DIRA), the Danish Biomedical Society (DMTS), the Danish Pattern Recognition Society (DSAGM), the Danish Remote Sensing Society (DSTM), International Game Developers Association (IGDA) and Øresund IT Academy a reduced fee is applicable.


Theme: The Graphical Processing Unit.

Most years, the Graphical Visionday is more or less unthemed in the sense that we cover a broad range of topics in computer graphics. This year, however, we have a strong emphasis on GPU architecture, programming, and computing. Apart from a single session, the entire day is devoted to these topics.
