CGS arranges conferences and workshops. It also edits journals and books independently or in cooperation with other professional societies.

Two conferences are organized each year by the Computer Graphics Society:

  1. The Computer Graphics International conference (CGI)  that was founded in 1983 by Prof. Tosiyasu L. Kunii in Tokyo, Japan

  2. The Computer Animation and Social Agents (CASA) conference, formerly named Computer Animation, that was founded in 1988 by Prof. Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann in Geneva

A steering committee (SC) is composed of members, mostly who have organized the conferences in the past. It decides about the strategy of the CGI and CASA conferences, considers and approves potential organisers, and monitors how the conference organisation is running. The SC requests a proposal including conference and program chairs proposals, financial budget and dates to be submitted to the SC no later than 14 months before the date of the new conference. A report after the end of the conference (number of participants, acceptance rate, financial issues) is also required.
