The dedicated COMPASS GPD program started in 2012 with a short pilot ’DVCS run’ and the first results from this run on DVCS, exclusive π0 and exclusive ω channels have been obtained. From the sum of cross sections measured with positive and negative beam polarities the DVCS cross-section and its dependence on the squared four-momentum transfer t have been extracted. It allowed a first estimate of the transverse size of the partonic distribution of the nucleon √〈r2⊥〉 i in a range of intermediate xBj with a mean xBj value of 0.056. We report also on the absolute value of the cross section for exclusive π0 production and its dependence on t and azimuthal angle ϕ between the scattering plane and π0 production plane. These measurements are aiming to constrain the GPDs, in particular chiral-odd (transversity) GPDs. Further, we present results on the spin density matrix elements for exclusive ω meson production and discuss the contributions from unnaturaly parity exchanges and from transitions that do not conserve helicity.
