Computer Graphics Laboratory ETH Zurich


Welcome to CGL

The Computer Graphics Laboratory (cgl) was founded in 1994 by Prof. Markus Gross. Our research is devoted to the design of fundamental methods, algorithms and systems for computer graphics, geometric modeling, physics-based animation, image acquisition and generation, display, scientific visualization, and multimodal learning.
CGL has currently 20 Ph.D. students and 8 senior researchers. CGL collaborates with researchers, institutions, and industry from all over the world.
Since 1994, we published more than 500 peer reviewed scientific papers, graduated 40 Ph.D. Students, created 6 faculty, filed more than 60 patents, and founded 5 startup companies.
