The EPCGI 2017 – Portuguese Meeting of Computer Graphics and Interaction, the annual national meeting of the scientific area of ​​Computer Graphics and Interaction, promoted by the GPCG – Eurographics Portuguese Chapter, which is organized this year by the Computer Graphics Center (CCG) with the support of the University of Minho.

The EPCGI 2017 aims to bring together researchers, teachers and professionals who work in Computer Graphics, Human-Computer Interaction, Image Processing or Computer Vision, allowing the dissemination of work done or in progress, the exchange of experiences and a forum for discussion of Issues related to the applications of these areas. This meeting will promote a Scientific Program, which includes presentations of long and short articles, invited plenary presentations and poster session.

Authors are invited to submit original articles reporting scientific papers, realized experiments or applications. Long articles should not exceed eight pages and short articles four pages. The poster submission will consist of a text, in the same format as the articles, with a maximum of 2 pages to be included in the minutes. The official language of the Meeting is Portuguese, including in the minutes, although English submissions are also accepted.
