In Cooperation with ACM SIGGRAPH

Symposium Specifics                                           Important Dates
18th - 21st of March 1990    Abstracts for contributed papers due: 15 Sep. 89
Snowbird, Utah USA                        Acceptance notification: 31 Oct. 89
(Proceedings at the symposium.)  Final papers for proceedings due: 10 Dec. 89

The focus of the symposium is on the topic:  Where is the frontier today in
real-time, interactive 3D graphics ?

The purpose of the symposium is to look at what research groups are doing with
their high-performance, real-time, interactive graphics systems, to find out
what special purpose architectures are on the drawing board, to discuss which
are the most user-friendly paradigms for interaction with such systems and to
learn what applications are still waiting for an appropriate 3D interactive

The symposium will consist of technical sessions in which formal papers are
presented and discussed and of hands-on demonstrations where research groups
and vendors of equipment demonstrate the state-of-the-art in this field.
In these demonstrations, we want to look at displays on which objects move and
with which one can interact. We are particularly interested in such notions as:

-- moving through virtual worlds, i.e. visual simulation systems that move us
through buildings or cities, over terrain or over the sea at multiple updates
per second;

-- interactively shaping, building or sculpting objects, using low-level
operations to drill holes or cut slots as well as high-level operations making
global shape adjustments;

-- interactively assembling and manipulating systems of parts, using aids that
yield ease of operation without sacrificing precision and give feedback as to
real-world geometric constraints;

-- interaction technologies and user interfaces for moving through 3D
virtual worlds.

The technical presentations at the symposium will focus on
innovative 3D graphics architectures and hardware, fast rendering algorithms,
new man-machine interface paradigms. Performance claims should be supported
by actual measurements of values such as polygons per second or updates
per second. Full explanations of any special techniques necessary to achieve
such real-time picture generation and display should be provided.

In addition, we want to discuss the real-time graphics requirements of special
applications that do not yet have satisfactory solutions, along with
recommendations for new architectures or future hardware additions to existing
graphics systems.

Paper Submissions and Requests for Registration

Prospective authors should submit 5 copies of an extended abstract to the
address below before the 15th of September 1989.
The abstracts should be 3 to 5 pages long and reflect what will be
contained in the final 8 to 12 page paper in the proceedings and in the
25 minute presentation at the symposium. Abstracts should clearly state
what has been achieved and how this makes a contribution to the advancement
of the state-of-the-art in interactive 3D graphics. Requests for
registration forms should also be mailed to the following address.

1. Reservations for the 1990 Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics

Registrants for the 1990 Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics:

     I just received a note from our local arrangements coordinator
Vicky Hawken stating that only 112 room reservations have so far
been made at Snowbird. Snowbird will shortly release the balance
of the rooms reserved for the "1990 Symposium on Interactive 3D
Graphics". Please contact Snowbird immediately if you have not
already made reservations for the symposium (25th through 28th
of March 1990). Also, please contact others in your organization
who have also registered to let them know the status of room
