The recent development of computer graphics enables us to interactively generate and display various graphical objects with high speed and with high resolution. However, some more elaboration remains to be needed when we generate mathematically rigorous artworks and use them effectively. To generate them, some collaboration between interactive graphics software and some other mathematically refined computing tools tends to be needed. And to display them, well organized system to export the graphical output into several formats should be needed. The theme of this workshop is the effective unification of interactive graphics software and other related tools.
