Call for Papers

Graphics Interface (GI), May 29-31, 2013, will be the 39th Graphics Interface conference; it is the oldest continuously-scheduled conference in the field. GI consistently attracts high-quality papers on recent advances in interactive systems, human computer interaction, and graphics, from around the world. GI 2013 is held in conjunction with the Computer and Robot Vision 2013 (CRV), and the Artificial Intelligence 2013 conferences. Registration will permit attendees to attend any talk in the three conferences (GI, AI, CRV), which will be scheduled in parallel tracks. The conference will also include a banquet and a posters/demos session.  It will take place in Regina, Saskatchewan, at The University of Regina. 

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit significantly extended and revised manuscripts to be considered for journal publication in a special section of Computers and Graphics.

All paper submissions are fully peer reviewed by at least two members of the program committee and two external reviewers. Accepted papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library. Papers have a maximum length of eight pages. If the contribution warrants it, a longer paper may be submitted; however, pages beyond eight are subject to page charges. Papers as short as four pages can be accepted.

Graphics Interface 2013 will have joint sessions for the graphics and HCI tracks. Topics of interest at GI include (but are not restricted to):

  • Shading and rendering
  • Geometric modeling and meshing
  • Graphics in simulation
  • Image-based rendering
  • Image synthesis and realism
