The AFGS (Asian Forum on Graphic Science) is an international conference on graphics participated mainly by Asian countries. It is held in odd-numbered years every two years in contrast to the ICGG (International Conference on Geometry and Graphics) which is held in even-numbered years.
AFGS evolved from its predecessor Japan−China Joint Conference on Graphics Education, which was held eight times between 1993 and 2007. The Japan−China Joint Conference on Graphics Education was an international conference held jointly by the Japan Society for Graphic Science and China Graphics Society focusing on graphics topics.
After the 8th Japan−China Joint Conference on Graphics Education, the conference name was changed to AFGS, and its scope was expanded to include topics other than graphics education, and participating countries mainly from Asia other than Japan and China.
