10th International Symposium on SMART GRAPHICS

June 24-26, 2010

Banff, Canada

Submission deadline February 14, 2010

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, artistic practice and computer graphics,
environments are created that:

(1) engage the user and are aesthetically satisfying;

(2) participate in human cognition as external or distributed representations;

(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 devices.

The International Symposium on Smart Graphics aims at gathering people from the
fields of Cognitive Science, Computer Graphics, Artificial Intelligence,
Interactive Art 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 2010 welcomes submissions from researchers and practitioners, as
well as artists and graphic designers interested in an interdisciplinary
approach to the design of smart interactive displays.

In 2010, we propose a specific emphasis on the integration of scientific
research and digital media technology into the design of aesthetic experience
and artistic practice. In particular, we encourage discussion of research that
locates the site of an interactive experience within the everyday world, using
smart graphics, technologies, and responsive media to enrich and augment the
public, private and personal spaces in which we live our lives.

Submission categories are divided into:

* Full research 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.

* Arts track: computer animations, multimedia performance, interactive art,
digital music, hybrid art, etc.  Artists must submit a two to three page
proposal outlining the concept and technique of the artwork, including a
discussion of the relationship between smart technologies and their artistic
and creative practice.  An international jury of renowned scientists and
artists will select the submissions that best represent the idea of <<Smart
Graphics Arts>>. Selected works will be displayed during the Smart Graphics
symposium, and presented to the public via an evening of performance,
installation, and gallery exhibition. A report of the arts track including all
the selected works will be included in the proceedings.

Smart Graphics specially encourages young researchers to submit their ideas and
results. As in previous conferences, proceedings will be published in the
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):

* computer graphics
* artificial intelligence
* virtual and mixed reality
* interactive media
* user interaction
* digital art
* information visualization
* visual analytics
* multimodal information presentation
* non-desktop interfaces
* graphical abstraction
* sketch-based interfaces
* interaction science
* scene perception
* cognitive sciences
* user studies
* graphics design


* John Bowers  (Goldsmiths, University of London)
* Maria Lantin (Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design)
