This conference acts as an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in and applications of computers, graphics, and imaging. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution. ***NOTE:Registrations will be accepted from delegates with paper(s) to present as well as from those who want to attend without papers.

CGIM 2003 will take place in the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel in Honolulu on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Historically, Waikiki was the playground of the Hawaiian ali'i (nobility), and it has since become the most famous strip of beach in the world, ringed with high-rise hotels and accessible to middle-class travelers. Waikiki Beach is actually a string of beaches stretching two and half miles along the pacific ocean. The soft sand bottom and turquoise waters make it an attractive spot for swimmers, surfers, and other water enthusiasts. The city of Honolulu itself is the commercial and government center for Hawaii. It is filled with many fine restaurants, shopping centers, and cultural and historical attractions. Other nearby attractions include Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head Crater, and the Polynesian Cultural Center.
