After a long time in which it was not possible to travel, our VisGroup was happy to finally be able to network again! Wintergraph is a yearly event organized by two Austrian universities, TU Wien and TU Graz. It usually takes place in spring, in the beautiful wintery mountains of Austria. The idea of this networking event is that international groups from all over Europe, researching in various scientific fields such as visualization, computer graphics, computer vision, etc., meet and present their research.
