Graphics interface is the oldest continuously-scheduled conference in the field. The conference consistently attracts high-quality papers on recent advances in interactive systems, human-computer interaction, and graphics, from around the world. GI 2014 is organised by McGill University and this time will take place in Montréal, Quebec, Canada from May 7th to 9th, 2014.
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.
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended and revised manuscripts to be considered, with partial reviewer continuity, for journal publication in a special section of Computers and Graphics.
GI 2014 is held in conjunction with the Computer and Robot Vision 2014 (CRV), and the Artificial Intelligence 2014 conferences. Registration will permit attendees to attend any talk or keynote 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.
Graphics Interface 2014 will have joint sessions for the graphics and HCI tracks, with talks in the areas of human-computer interaction, computer graphics, and visualization.
Keynote Speakers and Award Talks
Graphics Interface has two invited keynote speakers, one from the area of graphics and the other from human-computer interaction. An additional keynote talk will be given by the 2014 winner of the CHCCS Achievement Award. Invited talks will also be given by winners of the Alain Fournier and Bill Buxton Ph.D. Dissertation awards for 2013. The names of speakers, their biographics, talk titles, and talk abstracts will all be posted as the information becomes available.
Call for Papers
All paper submissions are fully peer reviewed by at least two members of the program committee and two external reviewers. 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 2014 will have joint sessions for the graphics and HCI tracks. Topics of interest at GI include, but are not restricted to the following:
- interaction techniques
- novel user interfaces
- quantitative and qualitative evaluations
- computer-supported collaborative work
- data and information visualization
- haptic and tangible interfaces
- assistive technologies
- ubiquitous computing
- usable security and privacy
- aesthetic design
- augmented reality
- real-time rendering
- image based techniques
- computational photography and imaging
- non-photo realistic rendering
- modelling for fabrication
- geometric modelling
- medical visualization
- scientific visualization
- physically based animation
- character animation
- fluid simulation
- virtual reality
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.
Awards and Publication Opportunity
The Michael A. J. Sweeney Award will be awarded at the conference to the best student papers in graphics and HCI. Authors of best papers and other selected papers will be invited to submit extended and revised manuscripts to be considered, with partial continuity of reviewing, for journal publication in a special section of Computers and Graphics.
