2009 will be the 35th Graphics Interface conference; it is the oldest
continuously-scheduled conference in the field. GI consistently attracts
high-quality papers on recent advances in interactive systems, human
computer interaction, and graphics, from around the world.

All paper submissions are fully peer reviewed by two members of the program
committee and two external reviewers. Accepted papers will be archived in
the ACM Digital Library.

Graphics Interface 2009 will have joint sessions for the graphics and HCI
Topics of interest at GI include (but are not restricted to):

-Shading and rendering
-Geometric modeling and meshing
-Graphics in simulation
-Image-based rendering
-Image synthesis and realism
-Medical and scientific visualization
-Computer animation
-Real-time rendering
-Non-photorealistic rendering

-Interaction Techniques
-Computer-supported cooperative work
-Human interface devices
-Virtual reality
-Augmented reality
-Data and information visualization
-Mobile computing
-Haptic and tangible interfaces

GI 2009 is held in conjunction with the Computer and Robot Vision 2009
(CRV), and the Artificial Intelligence 2009 (AI) conferences. Registration
will permit attendees to attend any talk in the three conferences (GI, AI,
CRV), which will be scheduled in parallel tracks. The conference will also
include a banquet and a posters/demos session.

NEW this year: Doctoral Seminar

The Doctoral Seminar will provide the opportunity for doctoral students
working in areas relevant to GI to present and discuss their research in an
informal setting. Each accepted doctoral student will give a short
presentation to other doctoral symposium participants and a panel of experts
in the field. Ample time will be provided for interactive discussions of the
work and future directions. Preference will be given to students who already
have a dissertation proposal. Submission will be in the form of a two page
extended abstract, to be evaluated based on originality, quality of
research, and potential impact on topics associated with GI. Doctoral
Seminar submissions are accepted in pdf format emailed to
[log in to unmask] by February 28, 2009 5PM PST.
