Welcome to the Web Site of the Computer Graphics project at IMPA ( directions). We invite you for a brief history of computer graphics at IMPA.

The VISGRAF Lab was created on 1989 with the purpose of developing research in Computer Graphics at the Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics. The project develops activities in three different and interconnected areas: education, research and development.

The Laboratory has been supported by the funding agencies FINEP, CNPq and FAPERJ and also by gifts from the companies IBM Brasil, BTG Pactual, Escola Parque, Autodesk/Alias, Nokia, Microsoft, Adobe, NVIDIA, and Endpoint. Additionally, we have been sponsored by donations from generous patrons who prefer to remain undisclosed.
