Welcome to the web site of the Computer Graphics Center!
The Association CCG/ZGDV - Center for Computer Graphics (CCG, www.ccg.pt) was founded in 1993 and established at the University of Minho in 2001 as a research, development, training and consulting entity, a private and non-profit organization, and integrated in the Portuguese Scientific System.
Autonomously or as a strategic partner, the CCG positions itself from its origins as an 'interface' between sources of knowledge (universities) and economy (Business), providing services and technology transfer in technological fields related to computer graphics, information technology, communication and electronics and its applications.
CCG has a wide experience regarding development and implementation of projects. Its activity is targeted to the following areas of applied research:
With the support of the Portuguese State – measure 3.1. Stimulation of Technological Systems, Training and Quality - Ministry of Economy and Innovation - in 2009, the CCG has taken another step in its strategy, and invested 3.8 million Euros in constructing a new building of 2.500 m2, equipped with edge technological infrastructures, in modern facilities and located in the campus of Azurém at the University of Minho, in Guimarães. In this infrastructure there is a Virtual Theater with 60 seats, the Datacenter and the CAVE - (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment) 3x3x3 m with 3 sides. This equipment is essential to support CCG’s activities and projects in leading edge technology areas such as in simulation, automation, virtual reality and general applied Computer Graphics.
In this website you can find detailed information about our various activities.
Come and participate in this great project!
