SG05: 5th International Symposium on SMART GRAPHICS

22-24 August 2005

Frauenwoerth Cloister, near Munich, Germany

Smart Graphics is grounded in a deep understanding of human abilities, activities, and desires. This understanding arises through the integration of fields such as art, design, and the social, cognitive, and perceptual sciences. Insights are realised in the form of novel methods for producing and interacting with rich graphical displays often utilising established techniques from computer graphics, artificial intelligence, and computer science in general. 

Such interfaces present content that: (1) engages the user and is esthetically satisfying; (2) participates in human cognition as external or distributed representations; (3) is sensitive to the real-time demands of the interaction in the context of the available computational resources; and (4) adapts 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 5th International Symposium on Smart Graphics will bring together researchers from computer graphics, vizualisation, graphics design, cognitive psychology and artificial intelligence, all working on different aspects of computer-generated graphics. This year's meeting will be held in the beautiful Frauenwörth Cloister near Munich, Germany.

This year SG05 particularly encourages submission in the area of visual analytics -- the art and science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual interfaces. Visual analytic interfaces are based on cognitive and perceptual principles to support human information discourse using innovative interactive techniques and visual representations. These are augmented by the art of graphical design and interaction design and the use of Artificial Intelligence in partnership with biological intelligence. Testing these applications will require new methodologies that move beyond usability to quantify the impact of interactive visualization applications on perceptual, distributed, and embodied cognition.
