I'd like to draw your attention to the Graphics Interface 2000 call
for papers which is included below.  Graphics Interface 2000 will
be held in Montreal May 15-17, 2000.  If you ran out of time to get
your paper in great shape for CHI 2000 then take note that the submission
deadline this year for Graphics Interface 2000 is ** Nov. 19, 1999 **.
GI 2000 is expected to be an exciting year for CHI papers so please
submitting your excellent research results to this highly regarded

We look forward to hearing from you.  Thank-you.

Sidney Fels & Pierre Poulin
GI 2000 co-chairs.


                            GRAPHICS INTERFACE 2000
                               Palais des Congres

Call for Papers

GI 2000 is a unique event that presents the latest results in computer
graphics and human-computer interaction.  It offers three days of Invited
Speakers, Posters, and Submitted Papers.  A Banquet and Electronic Theatre
provide additional opportunities to meet speakers and other attendees for
informal discussion in a social setting.  This conference is sponsored by
Canadian Human-Computer Communications Society.

This year will be the 26th annual Graphics Interface. It is the oldest
regularly scheduled computer graphics and human-computer interface
in the world. Graphics Interface has established a reputation for a
high-quality technical program, and the excellence of its invited speakers.
Full details are on the GI 2000 web site (

GI 2000 will be held at the Palais des Congres, Montreal, Quebec, Canada,
in conjunction with four other conferences: AI 2000 (Artificial
VI 2000 (Vision Interface), 10th annual PRECARN-IRIS (Institute for
and Intelligent Systems), and ISR 2000 (31st International Symposium on
Robotics). This special joint event offers a unique opportunity to broaden
dissemination of the scientific results and to foster the exchange of
expertise across adjacent research fields. To promote these exchanges, all
attendees will have access to the presentations of these parallel
as well as to the following exhibitions: Robotics of Tomorrow Exhibition,
the Montreal Fabricating and Machine Tool Show, and the National Factory
Automation Show.

Montreal is a lively Canadian city located on an island in the St. Lawrence
River. It is well connected by all major international airlines. Its four
universities, several research institutes, world class technologies
theatres, and museums have contributed to its international reputation as a
dynamic business, scientific, and cultural center. With a population
representing 80 ethnic groups, Montreal is known for its "joie de vivre"!
