High Performance Graphics 2023

High-Performance Graphics (HPG) is the leading international forum for performance-oriented graphics and imaging systems research, including innovative algorithms, efficient implementations, languages, compilers, parallelism, and hardware architectures for high-performance graphics. The conference brings together researchers, engineers, and architects to discuss the complex interactions of parallel and custom hardware, novel programming models, and efficient algorithms in the design of systems for current and future graphics and visual computing applications.

Town Hall Reception Simon Fenney talk HPG audience The Oostpoort

HPG2023 was held Jun 26-28 in Delft, Netherlands, co-hosted with the Eurographics Symposium on Rendering Techniques (which was held from Jun 28-30, and shared a keynote with HPG); our thanks to TU Delft for hosting us. Most sessions were streamed online and are now available on YouTube.

We hope you enjoyed HPG 2023, and look forward to seeing you at HPG 2024, co-located with SIGGRAPH in Denver*!

*SIGGRAPH 2024 will be held on Sunday July 28th – Thursday August 1st; we anticipate HPG being held on the Friday – Sunday immediately before SIGGRAPH (depending on SIGGRAPH’s schedule), but please wait for an announcement on highperformancegraphics.org before booking flights!

HPG’s full day video streams are available:

Cornell Box update

For those who signed up for premium registration at HPG 2022: if you don’t already have your Cornell Box and haven’t explicitly declined one, you should have received an email asking for your address so we can post one out to you. If you haven’t, please get in touch; we won’t be holding on to spares for much longer. If you’ve already given us your address, your box should be on its way, if it hasn’t already reached you. Andrew would very much like to be rid of them, and wishes to apologize again for how long this has taken. Thanks to everyone who has already picked up their box, or otherwise responded.
