The International Graphonomics Society (IGS) was created at the 1985 international conference with the main purpose being to coordinate and assist in the growth and development of the field of graphonomics in all its forms.[1] This has been done through conferences, workshops and publication of proceedings from those events.


History and conferencesEdit

The first international conference relating to graphonomics was held in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, in July 1982.[2] The term 'graphonomics' was used there for the first time.[3]

The second conference was held in July 1985 in Hong Kong[2] and, at that meeting, a decision was taken to form the International Graphonomics Society.[1] The IGS became a legal non-profit organization under Netherlands law on January 30, 1987.[1]

Subsequently, an international conference, symposium and/or workshop has been held every two years. Past events have been held in various locations with most events having a specific theme, as follows[2]:

  • Nijmegen, The Netherlands (1982), Motor Aspects of Handwriting
  • Hong Kong (1985), Graphonomics
  • Montreal, QC, Canada (1987), Third International Symposium on Handwriting and Computer Applications
