            2nd International Symposium on Smart Graphics


                           June 11-13 2002
                    IBM T.J. Watson Research Center
                         Hawthorne, NY, USA

                In cooperation with: AAAI & Eurographics

SG2002 welcomes submissions from cognitive scientists,  psychologists,
graphic designers, and human-computer interaction, computer graphics &
artificial intelligence researchers and practitioners.

Invited Speakers:

Ben Shneiderman (University of Maryland, USA)
Jock Mackinlay (Xerox PARC, USA)

Advances and breakthroughs in the area of  Computer Graphics have made
visual media a major  ingredient of the modern user interface,  and it
is likely  that graphics will  play a dominant role in the  way people
communicate and interact with computers in the future.  Especially the
evolution of computing towards more and more pervasive and distributed
devices pose new  and challenging problems  for  the effective  use of

Intelligent behaviour & graphics will  provide  the  technical core of
next generation interfaces.   But in order  to  make  those interfaces
successful,  principles  and findings  from  Cognitive Psychology  and
Graphics Design  are equally important to reflect the user's needs and

Until  recently  there  has  been  very  little  overlap  between  the
Cognitive  Psychology,  Computer  Graphics,  AI  and  Graphics  Design
communities. The Smart Graphics Symposiums intend to close these gaps.
Recent  advances in Computer Graphics  have allowed AI  researchers to
integrate graphics in  their systems (without  being burdened  by low-
level  issues  such  as  image  rendering)  and  graphics acceleration
hardware  has become affordable and is now available for a broad range
of platforms.  On the  other hand,  many AI techniques have matured to
the point of being usable by non specialists.  Furthermore, these very
techniques are likely to be the vehicle by which both  principles from
Graphics Design, and the results of  research in cognitive aspects of
visual representations will be integrated in next generation graphical
