Dear CHI community, there's only a week to go until the submission
deadline of Smart Graphics 2008 (Apr. 7). We wish you a productive time
and are looking forward to your submissions to:

              SG08: 8th International Symposium on SMART GRAPHICS


                              Aug 27-29 2008
                              Rennes, France
                     submission deadline Apr 7, 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, whose first
authors are students, will receive a prize. As in previous conferences,
proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) series.

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

previous events, see the website:
