Encarnação Award

The Portuguese Computer Graphics Group includes in its purposes the promotion of quality research in the area of ​​Computer Graphics and its Applications, in particular to develop in Portuguese students the taste and motivation to develop research activities in this scientific area.

In this sense, the GPCG decided to establish the annual “Professor José Luís Encarnação” prize, with the aim of encouraging higher education students to carry out research activities of excellence in the area of ​​Computer Graphics and Applications, which can be evaluated through the publication of results at conferences or Magazines of high prestige and international impact. This award is therefore addressed to students of Portuguese nationality of any cycle of Higher Education who demonstrate that they have published (and presented, in the case of a conference) a full paper in a forum of excellence.
