              SG07: 7th International Symposium on SMART GRAPHICS


                             June 25-27 2007
                               Kyoto, Japan

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 partnering event, for which we encourage participation is
the 7th Creativity and Cognition Conference (CC2007).
Another partner-event is the Visual Computing / Graphics & CAD symposium,
which takes place in Osaka, Japan (Jun 23-24).

SG07 welcomes submissions from computer graphics, HCI & AI researchers
and practitioners, cognitive scientists, artists and graphic designers
interested in a theoetically 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 (formal approval pending).

For a full description of the scope of the Symposium, and details of
previous events see the website:
