Call for Papers

Graphics Interface (GI) 2016, the 42nd annual conference, will be held in Victoria, British Columbia from May 31st-June 3rd, 2016. GI is the longest running conference in the field, consistently attracting high-quality submissions on recent advances in computer graphics, human-computer interaction (HCI), and visualization. All accepted GI papers are archived in the ACM Digital Library. The Michael A. J. Sweeney Award will be awarded at the conference to the best student papers in graphics and HCI. Authors should consult the eligibility criteria prior to submission. Authors of top papers will be invited to submit revised and extended versions to the journal Computers & Graphics.

GI 2016 will be held in conjunction with Computer and Robot Vision (CRV) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). A single registration provides access to all keynotes, invited and paper talks, as well as a common poster and demo session of the three conferences.
