After the changes in 1989 when the East block was "disolved" it was understood that it is neccesary to widen the collaboration in the fields of Computer Graphics. After some period it was decided to establish regular events that would bring the experts from the former Czechoslovakia together.
The WSCG event started as the Winter School of Computer Graphics with about 20 participants from the former Czechoslovakia. It was held in December 1992 in a small village close to the German border at the university training center Rybniky. Participants met in the period when the Czechoslovakia was to be split to two countries in January next year.
The second event was held in January 19.- 20, 1994 at the University of West Bohemia in Plzen with a small international part that enabled participants from the former Czechoslovakia to widen their knowledge in the field of Computer Graphics theory and its applications. The WSCG'94 was partially held with Czech and Slovak presentations and English ones.
In 1994 was decided to held the WSCG event as a regular event at which the West and East experts can meet. The title was changed to WSCG - The International Conference in Central Europe on Computer Graphics, Visualization and Computer Vision with English as the official language.
The titles of the WSCG conferences reflect somehow the development in the field and therefore the titles have been slightly changed to Computer Graphics, Visualization and Interactive Digital Media in 1999 and latter on to Computer Graphics, Visualization and Computer Vision for year 2001.
