Graphics Interface (GI) 2017, the 43rd annual conference in co-operation with ACM SIGCHI AND SIGGRAPH, will be held in Edmonton, Alberta from May 16th to May 19th, 2017. 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 will be indexed in the ACM Digital Library and will be open access in the Graphics Interface archive. The Michael A. J. Sweeney Award will be awarded at the conference to the best student papers in graphics and HCI. The best papers will be considered for publication in Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics. Additionally, authors of top papers will also be considered for revised and extended versions for the journal Computers & Graphics.

Preview of the Conference
GI 2017 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.
GI 2017 will have joint sessions for the graphics and HCI tracks. We seek submissions covering all aspects of graphics, HCI, as well as visualization. Authors must request that their submissions be handled by either the graphics or HCI sub-committee. In exceptional cases where significant overlap exists, a submission may be reviewed by members of both sub-committees. All paper submissions are fully peer reviewed by at least two members of the program committee and external reviewers. Papers normally have a maximum length of eight pages.
