Call for Papers

2nd Eurographics Workshop on Sketch-Based Interfaces and Modeling
Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, August 28-29, 2005

Important Dates
May 30, 2005 Submission deadline
June 27, 2005 Notification of acceptance
July 11, 2005 Deadline for camera-ready copies
August 28-29, 2005 Workshop

Aims and Scope
Computers are now indispensable tools for various design activities ranging
from everyday document authoring to professional industrial and architecture
design. However, computers have yet to become usable at the very early
stages of design, where pencil and paper still reign. This is because
current user interfaces are too cumbersome for rapid exploration necessary
in these early stages. Sketching interfaces are emerging as an approach to
address this problem. They are expected to provide flexible, informal
interaction between computers and users that do not hinder creative
The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for researchers
working on sketch-based interfaces to interact with one another, share
lessons learned, show new results, and discuss open issues. One direction to
explore is to develop new sketch-based interfaces for various applications
such as 2D/3D graphics, CAD, diagram editing, and electronic note taking.
Another direction is to develop and improve technologies that support
sketch-based interfaces. They include classification and recognition of
handwritten texts and shapes, multimodal interfaces, and mobile computing
technologies. It is also important to clarify the nature of sketch-based
interfaces through empirical usability studies and careful comparison to
other interaction techniques. The proceedings will be published in EG
Workshop series and made available online through the Eurographics Digital
Authors are invited to submit technical papers in these or related areas.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Sketch-based interfaces for 2D/3D computer graphics (modeling, animation,
- Sketch-based interfaces for CAD systems
- Sketch-based interfaces for other applications (diagram editing, math
  processing, etc.)
- Classification and recognition of handwritten sketches
- Multimodal interfaces for sketching
- Novel input technologies for sketching
- Rendering techniques for sketch-based interfaces (NPR)
- Creativity and design
- Usability studies on sketching
- Sketches for Medical and Volume data editing

Submission Procedure (all submissions are electronic)
Authors are requested to submit papers, no longer than 10 pages, with the
main body set in Eurographics Conference Paper Format as described in the EG
Publications pages. You can download LaTEX style files and for the
submissions. Each paper should contain title, authors' names and
affiliations, abstract, key-words, text, illustrations and references.
Submissions will be done electronically via email to

Please contact the conference organizers should you experience any problems
with electronic submission. Selection will be based upon technical and
scientific content and relevance to the workshop.

Invited Speaker
