SMI 2008 : IEEE International Conference on Shape Modeling and Applications
Conference Series : Shape Modeling International Conference
Call For Papers
IEEE International Conference on Shape Modeling and Applications 2008, (Shape Modeling International 2008, or SMI'08) will be held on June 4-6, 2008, in Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York, USA.
Shape Modeling International provides a premium international forum for the dissemination of new mathematical theories and novel computational techniques for modeling, simulating, and processing digital representations of shapes and their properties to a community of researchers, developers, practitioners, and students in academia and industry across a wide range of fields. In 2001, SMI has merged with the Implicit Surface Workshop and is now run as an annual event alternating between Asia, Europe, and America. SMI'08 will immediately follow the ACM Solid and Physical Modeling Symposium 2008 (SPM'08), to be held on June 2-4, 2008, in Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York, USA. Both SPM'08 and SMI'08 events will be co-located in Stony Brook, and are parts of the 2008 Stony Brook Modeling Week that features International Joint Convention on Shapes and Solids (ICSS'08). SMI'08 is co-sponsored by IEEE, Stony Brook's Computer Science Department, and ACM SIGGRAPH (pending). The SMI'08 conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Selected papers of outstanding quality will appear in major journals including Graphical Models and The Visual Computer.
Stony Brook Modeling Week will be hosted by the Center for Visual Computing (CVC) and Computer Science Department of Stony Brook University and will be chaired by Professor Hong Qin.
Papers presenting original research are being sought in all areas of shape modeling and applications. The technical topics for SMI'08 include (but are not limited to):
Shape Acquisition and Reconstruction

Paper Format and Submission Information for Authors
Abstracts (150-300 words, including title, the list of authors and their affiliations, keywords, and abstract) are requested in order to facilitate the review process. The submitted abstracts should have the following structure: 1. Paper title; 2. List of authors with their affiliations; 3. List of keywords; and 4. Paper abstract (plain text in ASCII, 150-300 words, no images)
Original unpublished papers of up to 10 pages (single-spaced, 10 point font, including figures, tables, and references) are invited for full paper submission. Manuscript must be written in English. Full papers should present previously-unpublished, original results that are not simultaneously submitted elsewhere. All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the International Program Committee. Submissions are made electronically in PDF format only (no paper copy will be accepted)!
Those who plan to use LaTeX or MS-Word for compiling their manuscripts, we recommend you to use the style file or template available through the IEEE CS sites: 8.5" x 11", two-column format, 10 point font, single-spaced.
Full papers should be submitted electronically via the conference paper submission and management system as PDF files only. More submission instructions will be available on the conference website in September 2007. If you have any questions about paper submission, please contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
