SMART GRAPHICS addresses the specification, design, implementation and
evaluation of intelligent and adaptive graphics that will provide the
technical core of the next generation of interfaces. The realisation
of SMART GRAPHICS depends upon a range of currently disparate fields
of enterprise including HCI, AI, cognitive science, computer graphics
and graphic design. The SMART GRAPHICS symposiums aim to close the
gaps between these disciplines.
Smart Graphics research can be loosely divided into principles,
methods and systems based research, and the symposium will encourage
submissions in all these areas, based on the following
Principles: characterizing and coping with constraints
on technological, computational and cognitive resources; theories of
Graphics Design and visual esthetics, cognitive theories of graphical representations;
conceptualizations of graphics; representation and reasoning requirements
for Smart Graphics; interaction between resource restrictions; design,
requirements capture and evaluation methodologies.
Methods: smart generation and presentation methods for both conventional desk-top and small pervasive
acquisition and representation of design knowledge for Smart Graphics generation;
empirical methods in the characterization of cognitive restrictions; dealing
with heterogeneous target media; application of planning, decision theory,
optimization, constraint satisfaction, machine learning and other AI techniques
to Smart Graphics; evaluation methods.
SG03 welcomes submissions from computer graphics, HCI & AI researchers
and practitioners, cognitive scientists, and graphic designers.
Systems: the application of Smart Graphics to visualization,
virtual reality, augmented reality, mobile communications, wearable computing,
graphical hypermedia, novel interaction techniques (e.g. haptic and natural
language interaction), and advisory & tutoring systems.
