Computer Graphics Visions and Challenges: A European Perspective
July/August 2006 (vol. 26 no. 4)
pp. 83-89
Jos? L. Encarnacao, Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics
The Information Society Technologies Advisory Group report Grand Challenges in the Evolution of the Information Society describes the grand challenges of the Information Society Technologies Program of the European Union and reports on some of the enabling technologies, research challenges, and societal innovations required to make those grand challenges happen. To fulfill and satisfy the enabling role of computer graphics, the computer graphics community has to address and solve some visions and challenges of its own.
