Computer Graphics Night 2022 – Award Winners

As every year, the Computer Graphics Night was looking for the brightest minds in visual computing. This year, however, the event had to take place completely virtually again. Of course, the award ceremony still took place and the jury, consisting of scientists from Fraunhofer IGD and chairs associated with the institute, chose this year's winners in the usual manner. We congratulate once again and thank the numerous guests who have given us a wonderful winter evening also in the 24th edition.
