Proceedings of Graphics Interface '96

Toronto, Ontario, Canada: 22 - 24 May 1996

© 1996. Published by Canadian Human-Computer Communications Society. ISBN 0-9695338-5-3.

Overview

The twenty second Graphics Interface featured three invited speakers whose contributions to computer graphics, its theory and its practice, had raised the profession significantly over the years: Bill Reeves, Jim Foley, and Nestor Burtnyk. Nestor Burtnyk was one of the pioneers in computer animation, an industry that Bill Reeves now represents with such presence. Computer techniques come onto desktops with interfaces designed to assist the user. The best assistance follows precepts of interaction laid down by Jim Foley. Nestor Burtnyk was the recipient of the 1996 CHCCS/SCDHM Achievement Award. GI ’96 also saw the introduction of the Michael A. J. Sweeney Awards.
