1995 Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics

Dear Potential Symposium Registrant:

     You are invited to register for the 1995 Symposium on Interactive 3D
Graphics. We hope this symposium will stimulate research in interactive
3D graphics by bringing together many of the outstanding researchers from
academia, industry and government. A variety of advanced work will be
covered, with the focus on the topic "Where is the frontier today in
real-time, interactive 3D graphics?"

     The symposium will start with a reception on Sunday evening, the 9th
of April (6pm to 8pm), where participants can get together informally and
watch some of the demonstrations. We are planning a full day of talks on Monday,
the 10th of April. Tuesday the 11th of April is another day of talks, with an
evening banquet. Wednesday, the 12th of April, is a full day of talks, with
symposium conclusion at 5pm.

     To facilitate closer participation by everyone and encourage better
sharing of ideas, the symposium will be limited to 250 participants.
Please register promptly with the registration form below. We have a
limited number of student scholarships available that will pay most of
the registration costs. If you are a full-time student and wish to apply
for one of these scholarships, please enclose with your registration
payment a letter requesting a scholarship. Please tell us in this letter
the name of your school and the degree program in which you are a
full-time student.

     The symposium will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Monterey,
California, on the 9th - 12th of April 1995. A block of rooms in the
Hyatt has been held for participants at the following rates:

                           Guest          Govt/Student
     Single Occupancy:     $111               $74

You must make reservations directly with the Hyatt by the 20th of March
1995. Rooms not reserved by name at that time will be released.
The Hyatt requires a major credit card to hold rooms and requires
72 hours prior to check-in time cancellation notice. Contact

The rates are valid three days before and after the symposium.
Mention the name of the conference when making reservations.
Monterey Peninsula is a tourist destination so please make
your hotel reservations as soon as you register for the

     The Hyatt Regency Monterey is five minutes from the Monterey Airport.
Monterey Airport is serviced by United, Delta, American, and USAir
via connecting flights in Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Jose.

     The registration fee for the symposium is $300 ($350 after 31
January 1995) and $100 for students. That fee includes the proceedings,
reception, banquet and lunches.
