Call For Papers

GI2006 will be the 32nd Graphics Interface conference; it is the oldest continuously-scheduled conference in the field. GI consistently attracts high-quality papers on recent advances in interactive systems, human computer interaction, and graphics, from around the world.
All paper submissions are fully peer reviewed by two members of the program committee and three external reviewers. Accepted papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.

Graphics Interface 2006 will have joint sessions for the graphics and HCI tracks. There will be separate but coordinated sub-committees for these two tracks. For papers where the topic makes it unclear which deadline applies, please contact the program chairs.

Topics of interest at GI include (but are not restricted to):

  • Shading and rendering
  • Geometric modeling and meshing
  • Graphics in simulation
  • Image-based rendering
  • Image synthesis and realism
  • Medical and scientific visualization
  • Computer animation
  • Real-time rendering
  • Non-photorealistic rendering
  • Interaction techniques
  • Computer-supported cooperative work
  • Human interface devices
  • Virtual reality
  • Augmented reality
  • Data and information visualization
  • Multimedia
  • Mobile computing
  • Haptic and tangible interfaces

GI 2006 will take place in conjunction with the Computer and Robot Vision 2006 (CRV) and Artificial Intelligence 2006 (AI) conferences. A single registration will permit attendees to attend any talk in the three conferences (GI, AI, CRV), which will be scheduled in parallel tracks. The conference will also include a banquet and a posters/demos session.
