The ZGDV association was established in 1984 and initiated, actively supported and promoted essential developments of
computer graphics and its applications. In the past, technological development goals were pursued in particular by
realising own and promoted research projects. In the future, the networks for the promotion of information,
communication and trends in the development of information technologies are to play a more important role.
Therefore, ZGDV was reoriented in three respects in 2009:
1.) On 30 March 2009, the annual general meeting revised the articles of association. As of 2009, a private membership
of ZDGV will be possible so that professional experts or representatives from specialised institutions or organisations
can be involved when common goals are pursued.
2.) As of 01 March 2009, the research area of ZDGV merged with the research area of the Fraunhofer Institut für
Graphische Datenverarbeitung, Darmstadt. Fraunhofer-IGD will continue to pursue the research activities.
3.) In the future, ZGDV will especially focus on the networking and promotion of its forums, which accomplish the
association's goals and will thus continue to make a contribution to implement knowledge transfer in operational
Support the ZGDV association and its forums. If you are interested in a membership, please contact the ZGDV board or
