Dear CHI audience,

there are almost 2 months left until the deadline of:

*SG05: 5th International Symposium on SMART GRAPHICS*

22-24 August 2005

In cooperation with ACM SIGCHI, SIGGRAPH, AAAI, EG

Frauenwoerth Cloister, near Munich, Germany

Smart Graphics is grounded in a deep understanding of human abilities, 
activities, and desires. This understanding arises through the 
integration of fields such as art, design, and the social, cognitive, 
and perceptual sciences. Insights are realised in the form of novel 
methods for producing and interacting with rich graphical displays often 
utilising established techniques from computer graphics, artificial 
intelligence, and computer science in general.

Such interfaces present content that: (1) engages the user and is 
esthetically satisfying; (2) participates in human cognition as external 
or distributed representations; (3) is sensitive to the real-time 
demands of the interaction in the context of the available computational 
resources; and (4) adapts the form of the output according to a wider 
set of constraints such as an individual’s perceptual, attentive, and 
motor abilities and the nature of the presentation media and available 
interaction devices.

The 5th International Symposium on Smart Graphics will bring together 
researchers from computer graphics, vizualisation, graphics design, 
cognitive psychology and artificial intelligence, all working on 
different aspects of computer-generated graphics. This year’s meeting 
will be held in the beautiful Frauenwörth Cloister near Munich, Germany.

This year SG05 particularly encourages submission in the area of visual 
analytics -- the art and science of analytical reasoning facilitated by 
interactive visual interfaces. Visual analytic interfaces are based on 
cognitive and perceptual principles to support human information 
discourse using innovative interactive techniques and visual 
representations. These are augmented by the art of graphical design and 
interaction design and the use of Artificial Intelligence in partnership 
with biological intelligence. Testing these applications will require 
new methodologies that move beyond usability to quantify the impact of 
interactive visualization applications on perceptual, distributed, and 
embodied cognition.
