Overview

The thirty-seventh Graphics Interface featured two invited speakers and one Achievement Award winner. The two invited speakers, Carl Gutwin, University of Saskatchewan, and John C. Hart, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, are both well known for their exemplary contributions to their disciplines. Brian Wyvill, University of Victoria, was this year’s recipient of the Canadian Human-Computer Communications Society (CHCCS) / Société Canadienne du Dialogue Humain Machine (SCDHM) Achievement Award. This year’s winner of the Alain Fournier Award is Stelian Coros; the Bill Buxton Award is split between Daniel Vogel and Garth Shoemaker.
