professional biography

Wojciech S. Mokrzycki was born in 1943 in Cmolas (Poland). He obtained his MSc. degree in automation and computer science from Moscow Power Engineering Institute. In 1967 he started working for Military Academy of Technology in Warsaw as a research assistant. Next he chaired Computer Graphic Hardware Group. He was a co-author of the first - in the East European Countries - graphic monitor, and after this - multimonitor graphics system. Since 1977 he has chaired (founded by himself) Computer Graphic Laboratory in the Institute of Mathematical Machines (programming of numerical control of machine tools and computer graphics systems on the base of standard interface). In addition, he was a co-author of some graphic programming systems. He was the creator of Polish terminology in computer graphics and image processing field (co-author of some papers and author of the ''Encyclopaedia of Picture Processing'' (Encyklopedia Przetwarzania Obrazow).
