Conference Scope, Objectives and Structure

"COMPUTATIONAL Graphics" is an emerging scientific area which combines
traditional and COMPUTER Graphics, Technical Drawing, Descriptive
Geometry, Computational Geometry and Geometric Modeling.  As such, it is
at the heart of all graphical applications related to the sciences,
namely Engineering Science, forming the backbone of the so-called
Scientific Visualization.
The present conference aims therefore at gathering together outstanding
experts, leading researchers, scholars, engineers, scientists, industrialists
and all interested individuals in these interrelated fields.
The event, the actual first and truly international meeting on
'Computational Graphics', is designed to be a large forum for everyone
involved, materialized by high-level lectures, papers and panels, and is
intended to be a unique opportunity to discuss the present situation,
future directions, research and educational goals. It will lead to a thorough
definition and solidification of the discipline and will provide the needed
fertilization of ideas and experiences.

A number of keynote lectures by especially invited speakers is being
prepared to reinforce the overall goals of the event.  Confirmed speakers
include :

Varol Akman           Jon Meads           Judson Rosebush
Vera Anand            Bob Parslow         Steve Slaby
Joao Cunha            Les Piegl           Jorge Stolfi.
Alain Fournier                            Daniel Thalmann

A parallel exhibition of equipment, software and literature, will take
place and special demonstrations are being planned, including a slide,
film and video show.  Participants are encouraged to bring material of all
kinds (publications, audio-visual items, books, etc) to be displayed.
Delegates' software are especially welcome and demonstrations can be arranged.

The Conference language is English.

Conference Location


The Conference will be held at "Villas de Sesimbra", in Sesimbra, a
wonderful summer resort near Lisbon, standing at the so-called "Blue
Coast".  Sesimbra offers a wide variety of attractions, particularly
its fabulous beaches, a walking distance from the Conference location.
Cozy and varied restaurants, shops, pubs, bars and discos abound, just
below the beautiful medieval castle which overlooks the area.  Fishing
zones and golf clubs are also points of interest and the conference
site itself is full of facilities like swimming pool, gym and tennis
courts, sauna, bar, restaurant and night-club.

Several tours, a program for accompanying persons and other social
events will be organized.

Various attractions will take place at the time of the Conference,
being of notice the Formula 1 Car Race in Estoril (Sept. 22), a
sailing and racing boat championship and, much too predictably,
