Call for Participation
SIGCOMM--SIGGRAPH Workshop on Graphics and Networking(1)
1--3 June 1992
Washington University, St. Louis, MO
The technologies behind high-performance computer graphics systems and
computer communications networks enjoy a synergistic relationship. Improved
performance from computer networks allows distributed graphics system
to provide more sophisticated functions, while sophisticated graphics
applications such as distributed visualization systems demand increasing
throughput and responsiveness from computer protocols and network hardware.
SIGGRAPH and SIGCOMM cooperated to hold a Workshop on Graphics and
Networking in January, 1991. The participants in that workshop identified
several areas in which graphics and networking technology interact,
including: distributed software architectures and environments, distributed
graphics languages, network--distributed applications of visualization,
standards--related issues, and the interaction of distributed graphics
systems and network communications protocols.
Due to the interest and participation in the 1991 workshop, SIGGRAPH and
SIGCOMM have agreed to hold a second workshop in June, 1992. The goal
of the 1992 workshop is to explore further the topics identified at the
Boulder workshop, and to identify new areas of interaction between graphics
and networking, to promote better understanding between the graphics and
The workshop format will be three days of plenary meetings, with each day
having four sessions. Each session will start with brief presentations
(5--10 minutes) by selected attendees, followed by discussion. A meeting
report will appear in the SIGGRAPH and SIGCOMM newsletters.
How To Participate: To ensure a good interaction between participants,
the workshop will be limited to no more than 75 people. We will try to
give every attendee the opportunity to give a short talk. If you are
interested in attending, send a two paragraph application that describes
your background, and the topic or topics you would like to discuss, to the
program co--chairs by March 6, 1992:

Workshop Location and Fees: The workshop will be held on the campus of
Washington University, in St. Louis, Missouri. We expect a choice of
hotels, with prices from $50 to $80. On--campus housing may also be
available at a reduced rate. The registration fee for the workshop will be
$80 for SIG/ACM members and $100 for non--members.
Student Attendance: There are spaces reserved for two graduate students to
attend the workshop. These two students will be asked to keep notes, and
provide a workshop report that will be printed in the SIGGRAPH and SIGCOMM
newsletters. In return for this work, the workshop will provide up to $500
in travel funding for each student. Students interested in applying for
these positions should contact the workshop co-chairs.
