             SG08: 8th International Symposium on SMART GRAPHICS


                             Aug 27-29 2008
                             Rennes, France
                    submission deadline Apr 7th, 2008

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;
(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

The International Symposium on Smart Graphics aims at gathering people
from the fields of Cognitive Science, Computer Graphics, Artificial
Intelligence and Graphics Design to share experiences and experiments in
this new and emerging area of study.

      *** Come and Join the Smart Graphics Experience ***

Smart Graphics 2008 welcomes submissions from researchers and
practitioners, as well as artists and graphic designers interested in
an interdisciplinary approach to the design of smart interactive visual,
auditory, and haptic displays.

Submission categories are divided into:
* Full papers: these will encompass comprehensive descriptions of original
  work within the scope of the symposium (limited to 12 pages in Springer
  LNCS format).
* Posters: tentative or preliminary results of research or design work
  with emphasis on the interdisciplinary evaluation of the ideas (limited
  to 4 pages in Springer LNCS format). Poster papers will be included in
  the proceedings.
* System demonstrations: short descriptions of research or design work
  that the authors intend to show and discuss in a demo session at the
  symposium (limited to 2 pages in Springer LNCS format). System
  demonstration papers will be included in the proceedings.

Smartgraphics specially encourages young researchers to submit their ideas
and results. The best full paper and best poster, which first authors
are students, will receive a 500 euros prize each donated by the Metivier 
Foundation. As in previous conferences, proceedings will be published in the 
Springer Lecture Note in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):
* information visualization
* visual analytics
* graphical abstraction
* multimodal information presentation 
* non-desktop interfaces
* user interaction
* sketch-based interfaces
* interaction science
* scene perception
* cognitive sciences
* user studies
* computer graphics
* artificial intelligence
* virtual and mixed reality
* graphics design

This year, we propose a specific emphasis on interaction in virtual
reality as well as on constraint techniques in user interfaces.
