Graphics Programming Conference

A new, international conference for real-time and interactive graphics programming.

The Graphics Programming Conference (GPC) is a new, international conference for real-time and interactive graphics programmers. We’re here to bring together graphics programmers, technical directors, graphics researchers, game developers, academia, and students. If you’re working on graphics, be it stylized rendering, movie rendering, real-time games, or similar, we want this conference to be yours to meet like-minded people and learn about new techniques, things that work in the wild, new ideas, then this is the place to be.

We’re new, but we’re not new to conferences – we’ve got a team of industry veterans organizing this conference and the venue is secured. We have experience running the successful Everything Procedural Conference, Virtual Productions Gathering, and Industry Showcase Day.

Our team consists of both academic specialists in graphics programming and industry alumni trying to establish an alternative conference for the graphics programming community in Europe.

What is it?

The Graphics Programming Conference is a three day event in November. We’ll have keynotes from industry experts, presentations, and “masterclass” workshops with the ability to dive into specific technology in a hands-on environment.

We’ll have plenty of time to network in the beautiful city of Breda, The Netherlands which is also easy to reach by plane thanks to Schipol (AMS/Amsterdam) airport and with the Intercity Direct train from Schipol, you will be in Breda in less than 60 minutes!

Pondering Orbs: The Rendering and Art Tools of "COCOON"

Rendering the game’s beautiful worlds within worlds takes a few tricks – from thick billowing froxel fog and spherical harmonics volumetric lightmaps, to a host of visual effects like crystalline Voronoi bridges, SDF shoreline ripples on water, and warping through ponderable orbs.

Mikkel Svendsen presents how these features, tools and effects were implemented and shipped on the game’s target platforms, how they contributed to the game’s look, and how it all works together with an MSAA-friendly rendering pipeline by carefully considering the gotchas of fitting these features and effects with that.
