The Eighth IASTED International Conference on
~CGIM 2005~

August 15-17, 2005
Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
Technical Committee on Graphics

Technical Committee on Image Processing

This conference is an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in, and applications of, computer 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 evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

CGIM 2005 will be held in conjunction with the international conferences on:
Internet and Multimedia Systems and Applications (IMSA 2005)
Signal and Image Processing (SIP 2005)
CGIM 2005 will take place at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel on beautiful Waikiki Beach. Located in the city of Honolulu on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, Waikiki was historically the playground of the Hawaiian ali'i (nobility), and has since become one of the most famous beaches in the world. Encircled by high-rise hotels, Waikiki is in fact a string of beaches stretching two and a half miles along the ocean. The soft sand and turquoise waters make it an attractive spot for swimmers, surfers, and other water enthusiasts. The city of Honolulu is the commercial and administrative center for Hawaii and 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.

This conference will focus on six major themes. Topics include, but are not limited to:
