The Graphics and Visualization Conference

Thursday, April 18, 1996
Richland, Washington

NEW! Jan. 15, 1996 - The organizing committee for GViz '96 has decided to postpone the GViz conference. A new date will probably be set for Spring 1997.

A number of factors came into play to make this difficult decision. Prominently among those factors is the uncertainty of support due to cutbacks at Hanford. The Tri-Cities ACM Siggraph is considering a scaled back symposium during the Spring of '96 instead. Check back for further information, or e-mail me to be notified.

About the Conference

GViz '96 is a follow up to the successful GViz '94. It is scheduled for April 18, 1996 at the Tower Inn in Richland, Washington. We are very pleased to announce that Tom Furness of the Human Interface Technology Lab at the University of Washington will be the keynote speaker. In addition to the technical papers and vendor show, we are working on developing a computer art show and a SIG-KIDS program for young people.

The main focus of the GViz '96 is to promote understanding of the latest in computer technology as it relates to graphics and visualization. The technical paper sessions provide a forum for the presentation of current research and application development in the area of computer graphics. Some areas that may be covered are Geographic Information Systems, Graphical User Interfaces, Multi-Media, Finite Element Analysis, Scientific Visualization and Immersive Virtual Reality Environments. The vendor show provides exposure to the latest products and technology availaiable in these fields. GViz '96 is sponsored by the Tri-Cities Washington ACM-SIGGRAPH professional chapter.

Profits from GViz '96 will be used to create a Computer Science scholarship at the Tri-Cities Branch of Washington State University or at Columbia Basin College.
