                  Advanced Visual Interfaces
               International Working Conference
 In cooperation with ACM-SIGCHI, ACM-SIGMM, SIGCHI Italy

               Venice, Italy, May 23-26, 2006



The 8th International Working Conference on Advanced Visual
Interfaces (AVI 2006) will be held in Venice, Italy, May 23-26, 2006.
Started in 1992 in Rome, and held every two years in different
Italian towns, the Conference traditionally brings together experts
in different areas of computer science who have a common interest in
the conception, design and implementation of
visual and, more generally, perceptual interfaces, with a growing
interest for mobile devices such as smartphones, palmtops and PDAs,
in the framework of traditional and emerging environments, such as
ubiquitous and pervasive computer applications.
A special theme of this edition, suggested by the beautiful town
hosting the conference, is the design of advanced interfaces for art,
cultural heritage and tourism.
