*Graphics Interface 2016 --- Call for Papers*

Graphics Interface (GI) 2016, the 41st annual conference, will be held in
Victoria, British Columbia, May 31st-June 3rd, 2016. GI is the longest
running conference in the field, consistently attracting high-quality
submissions on recent advances in computer graphics, human-computer
interaction (HCI), and visualization. All accepted GI papers are archived
in the ACM Digital Library. The Michael A. J. Sweeney Award will be awarded
at the conference to the best student papers in graphics and HCI. Authors
of top papers will be invited to submit revised and extended versions to
the journal Computers & Graphics.

GI 2016 will be held in conjunction with Computer and Robot Vision (CRV)
and Artificial Intelligence (AI). A single registration provides access to
all keynotes, invited and paper talks, as well as a common poster and demo
session of the three conferences.
