Smart Graphics 2011 welcomes submissions from researchers and practitioners, as well as graphic artists and graphic designers interested in an interdisciplinary approach to the design of smart interactive visual, auditory, and haptic displays. We specially encourage young researchers to submit their ideas and results.

In 2011, we propose a specific emphasis on the integration of scientific research into the design of intelligent, context-aware digital media applications. In particular, we encourage discussion of research that pertains to interactions within the everyday world, using smart graphics and responsive media to enrich and augment experiences, culture, leisure, and work.

Submission categories are divided into:

  • Full research papers: these will encompass comprehensive descriptions of original work within the scope of the symposium (limited to 12 pages in Springer LNCS format).
  • Posters: tentative or preliminary results of research or design work with emphasis on the interdisciplinary evaluation of the ideas (limited to 4 pages in Springer LNCS format). Poster papers will be included in the proceedings.
  • System demonstrations: short descriptions of research or design work that the authors intend to show and discuss in a demo session at the symposium (limited to 2 pages in Springer LNCS format). System demonstration papers will be included in the proceedings.
  • Arts track: computer animations, multimedia performances, interactive art and design, etc. Artists must submit a three page proposal outlining the concept and technique of their work, including a discussion of the relationship between smart technologies and their artistic and creative practice.
    An international jury of renowned scientists and artists will select the submissions. Selected works will be displayed during the Smart Graphics symposium, and presented to the public via an evening of performance, installation, and gallery exhibition at the compArt Center of Excellence Digital Art. A report of the arts track including all the selected works will be included in the proceedings.

Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):

  • computer graphics
  • artificial intelligence
  • cognitive science
  • scene perception
  • graphical abstraction
  • graphics design
  • virtual and mixed reality
  • entertainment computing
  • computational aesthetics
  • information visualization
  • visual analytics
  • multimodal interfaces
  • context-aware interfaces
  • non-desktop interfaces
  • surface computing
  • sketch-based interfaces
  • interaction design/user experience
  • human-computer interaction
  • interaction science
  • user studies

Authors’ Instructions

As in previous years, proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Therefore, submissions are expected in the Springer LNCS format. You will find instructions for the preparation of your papers at Springer’s Authors’ Instructions page.

The peer-review process will be double-blind. Please make sure to remove author names, affiliations, and PDF metadata from all papers submitted for review.
