Sketch-Based Interfaces and Modeling 

August 1-2, 2009 · New Orleans, LA, USA

Co-located with SIGGRAPH 2009

First started in 2004, the sixth Eurographics/ACM Symposium on Sketch-Based Interfaces and Modeling provides a unique venue for researchers, students and practitioners interested in sketch-based techniques to interact with one another, share lessons learned, show new results and discuss open issues. This year, the workshop will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, and will be co-located with the 36th International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques (ACM SIGGRAPH 2009 ).

The two day workshop will include paper presentations (single-track), coffee breaks, a social event and a keynote talk by Dr. Mark Gross of Carnegie Mellon University. All are welcome to attend the workshop; submission of a paper is not required for attendance. The proceedings will be published in the EG symposia series and made available online through the Eurographics and ACM Digital Libraries.
