Dear CHI audience,

there are almost 4 weeks left until the deadline of Smart Graphics 2005, 
so make sure to collect the latest references at CHI next week and use 
the long flights to and from Portland for writing the outline of your paper!

cheers, Andreas

*SG05: 5th International Symposium on SMART GRAPHICS*

http://www.smartgraphics.org/sg05/

22-24 August 2005

In cooperation with ACM SIGCHI, SIGGRAPH, AAAI, EG
Proceedings published as Springer LNCS

Frauenwoerth Cloister, near Munich, Germany
http://www.smartgraphics.org/sg05/venue.html

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.
