Thanks to all the authors and attendees for a great GI in St. John's.

GI 2012 will be held in Toronto, at York University. Its dates will be May 25-27; the paper submission deadline is December 20, 2011. You can find more information at the official GI 2012 page.

Graphics Interface 2011 will take place in St. John's, Newfoundland, at Memorial University from May 25th to 27th. GI 2011 will be the 37th 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.

All paper submissions are fully peer reviewed by two members of the program committee and two external reviewers. Accepted papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.

Graphics Interface 2011 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
  • Medical visualization
  • Scientific visualization
  • Computer animation
  • Real-time rendering
  • Non-photorealistic rendering
  • Virtual reality
  • Interaction techniques
  • Computer-supported cooperative work
  • Human interface devices
  • Augmented reality
  • Data and information visualization
  • Multimedia
  • Mobile computing
  • Haptic and tangible interfaces
  • Affective interfaces
  • Aesthetic design
  • Perception

GI 2011 is held in conjunction with the Computer and Robot Vision 2011 (CRV), and the Artificial Intelligence 2011 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.
