Dear CHI community,

the deadline for Smart Graphics 2006 is by the end of next week. This 
year's symposium will be held back to back with CogSci 2006 and WCCI 
2006 in order to spare your travel budgets, so please consider us in 
your publication plans and in your travel schedule ;-)

              SG06: 6th International Symposium on SMART GRAPHICS


                             July 23-25 2006
                            Vancouver Canada

Graphics become Smart Graphics when their design and implementation
are grounded in an understanding of human abilities, activities, and
motivations from design experience and the broad spectrum of cognitive
and social sciences.

When knowledge from these diverse fields is combined with new methods,
tools and techniques in AI, HCI and computer graphics, environments
are created that

(1) engage the user and are esthetically satisfying;
(2) participate in human cognition as external or distributed
(3) are sensitive to the real-time demands of the interaction in the
     context of the available informational and computational
     resources; and
(4) adapt 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 International Symposium on Smart Graphics brings together people
from the fields of Cognitive Science, Computer Graphics, Artificial
Intelligence and Graphics Design to build this new and emerging area
of study. A growing interest in visual analytics and interaction
science on the part of applications developers and granting agencies
has led us to co-locate this years conference with the 28th Annual
Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society and the IEEE World Congress
in Computational Intelligence.

SG06 welcomes submissions from computer graphics, HCI & AI researchers
and practitioners, cognitive scientists, artists and graphic designers
interested in a theoretically motivated interdisciplinary approach to
the design of interactive visual, auditory, and haptic displays.

It is planned to publish the proceedings in the Springer LNCS series,
as in the previous years.

previous events see the website:
