Call for Papers


International Conference on Shape Modeling and Applications
University of Aizu, Aizu-Wakamatsu, Japan
1-4 March 1999


The International Conference on Shape Modeling and Applications will
be held in Aizu-Wakamatsu (Fukushima Prefecture, Japan) on 1-4 March 1999.
The program includes one day of tutorials and three days of the papers program.

The conference is organized by The University of Aizu in cooperation with
ACM SIGGRAPH, Computer Graphics Society, and IEEE Computer Society.



One of the main goals of computer graphics and computer vision is to discover the
essential rules of representing and generating shapes.
Reasoning about the shape is a common way of describing and representing real
and abstract objects in computer science, engineering, mathematics,
biology, physics, chemistry, medicine and even in daily life. This conference is aimed
at providing an opportunity to exchange results obtained in diverse advanced
theories and techniques devised for handling the shape of objects.

The scope of the conference includes, but is not limited to, topics such as:

- Shape Abstraction, Modeling, Analysis and Description
- Geometric Modeling of Shapes
- Topological Modeling of Shapes
- Physically-Based Modeling
- Procedural Modeling
- Fractal/Stochastic Modeling
- Artificial Lives
- Imaging Understanding
- Visualization of Shapes
- Synthetic Worlds
- Parallel/Distributed Algorithms and Hardware Approaches
- Applications

Submission of Papers

Authors are invited to submit six copies of full papers to
the address given below. Papers are expected to be no longer than 20 pages
(double spaced) including figures (color or grayscale), tables and references.
The first page of the paper should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation,
postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, and fax number for each author.
Each paper will be refereed by three researchers in the topical area.
Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for
publication elsewhere. Authors of accepted papers will be asked to prepare
the final version in the camera-ready format. Proceedings of the conference
will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and will be distributed
at the conference.

Please submit papers to:

Conference Venue

The University of Aizu was established in 1993 as the first Japanese
research university with positions open to world-class faculty. It has
attracted researchers and educators from 16 countries around the world.
The University of Aizu is located in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, an old castle town
of the Edo period. You can enjoy mountain Bandai and lake Inawashiro and
visit many historical sites. The area is famous for skiing resorts, hot
springs and sake (Japanese rice wine).
