     Conference Dates:                       April 5-8, 2004

 Ninth in a series, the Web3D 2004 Symposium will focus on every aspect
 of 3D technologies on the Internet, ranging from languages, tools and
 high performance 3D graphics to human-computer interaction issues
 and the latest mobile applications.
 The annual Web3D Symposium is a major event which unites researchers,
 developers, experimenters, and content creators in a dynamic learning
 environment.  Attendees share and explore methods of using, enhancing,
 or creating new 3D Web technology such as X3D, VRML, MPEG4, OpenHSF,
 and Java3D.

 Authors are invited to submit their work for careful review by the
 International Program Committee. Both research and applications papers
 are of interest to Web3D 2004.
 All content must be innovative and meaningful to the advancement of
 3D technologies on the Web. Topics of interest include but are not
 limited to:
 * 3D graphics for wireless PDAs and cellular phones
 * Animated humanoids and complex reactive characters
 * Computer Aided Design technology and methods for lossless
   cross-application data exchange
 * Geometry/object behaviors in Web3D settings
 * High performance 3D graphics for distributed environments
   and tele-operation systems
 * Innovative user interface paradigms for navigating real-time
   3D graphics environments and Web3D worlds
 * Interaction methods for Web-based 3D graphics systems
 * Methods for designing, representing, interacting with, and
   visualizing complex geometry and structure
 * Multimodal user interaction in Web3D worlds
 * Specifications, languages, or abstractions for specifying 3D geometry
   and their behaviors

 Submit short papers of up to 9 pages (including figures and
 references) in PDF format by 11:59pm PST, NOVEMBER 11, 2003 via
 the Symposium Web Page. Papers must be formatted using the
 document templates for Conferences sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH
 After acceptance, the final revised paper is required also
 in electronic form.

 Accepted papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings,
 published by ACM Press.
