Conference Proceedings

Proceedings of Graphics Interface '90

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada: 14-18 May 1990

© 1990. Published by Canadian Information Processing Society.

Overview

Graphics Interface ’90, the sixteenth in the series, was (again) held in conjunction with Vision Interface. This year’s conference saw the inaugural 1990 CMCCS Achievement Award given to Marceli Wein, an international leader in Computer Graphics research. Within CMCCS, Marceli was one of the principals who organized the initial Canadian Man-Computer Communications Conference in Ottawa. Seventeen of the papers in this year’s proceedings came from the United States, thirteen from Canada, and the remainder from Israel, the United Kingdom, and China.
