The CDE organises a range of training, showcase and networking events throughout the year. CDE staff and students also attend and present at a range of industrial and academic conferences.
We also run a virtual External Speaker Series where alumni, industrial supervisors and experts from the digital economy sector share their knowledge and expertise with our Research Engineers. Some of these are open to a wider audience.

Eurographics’2021, the 42nd Annual Conference of the European Association for Computer Graphics, will take place on May 3 − 7, 2021. It is organized by the Research Unit of Computer Graphics at TU Wien. Eurographics’2021 is a unique platform for the computer graphics community to showcase latest techniques and educational work, and to explore new trends and ideas.
It was planned to host Eurographics’2021 in Vienna, Austria. Unfortunately, it is becoming more and more clear that the COVID-19 crisis will continue for quite some time. We are the most sad of all having to inform you that Eurographics’2021 will have to be organized as a purely virtual event. Contact restrictions and travel warnings will not be over in time to allow for a “normal” conference. We are very sorry for all who were looking forward to visiting Vienna, and even more important meeting their colleagues and friends in person.
However, we will try to make Eurographics’2021 as exciting as possible. The virtual format has some advantages for some (no traveling, no accommodation costs, no separation from partners, etc.), and we will do our best to provide you with a high-quality and socially valuable conference. So put the date in your calendar now (May 3-7, 2021) and don’t book a trip Submit your work to Eurographics’2021, and enjoy that you can do your presentation from home. And expect us to invent motivating surprises during the conference week!

Develop:Brighton has been bringing together the European Game Dev community from global superstars to micro indies - since 2006. Come and learn from your peers and share your experiences, hear from the industry’s leading lights, get up-to-date with the latest tools, techniques and industry trends, plus network with 3,000 game dev professionals.
Due to the COVID pandemic, 2020 has been a very strange and difficult year for everyone so sadly we couldn't bring our community together face to face. However, we were able to run Develop:Brighton Digital instead which was a great success and we'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part, supported us and joined in - we really hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did and have been inspired to make even better games...
We look forward to seeing you in person next year 13 - 15 July 2021, Hilton Brighton Metropole, Brighton BN1 2FU
