Smart Graphics: 12th International Symposium, SG 2014, Taipei, Taiwan, August 27-29, 2014. Proceedings

Abstract : After two years without our yearly Smartgraphics Symposium, it was with great pleasure that we held this 2014 event in the lively city of Taipei.In the past few years, the emphasis on multidisciplinary approaches in graphics has never been so important, and we are thrilled to see that Smartgraphics has been contributing along this path since the year 2000. By tackling challenges at the intersection of graphics, AI, HCI, and cognitive sciences, Smartgraphics pushed once again its characteristic interdisciplinary endeavor, and created a place for rich exchanges and great discussions. This year’s event was held during August 27–29, 2014, at the National Chengchi University in Taipei, Taiwan. The Organizing Committee gathered a lively and broad program, with four sessions, presenting altogether 14 full papers, 4 short papers, and a number of posters, demonstrations, and art pieces. Sessions were within the typical Smartgraphics scope with a first session on data visualization, a second session on sketching and multi-touch interaction, a third on aesthetics and smart tools for artists, and a last one on smart tools for 3D contents.As usual in our event, a demo session was organized in which researchers and practitioners can present their tools, triggering rich discussions and valuable feedback through an open and informal setup. Smartgraphics was honored to host two very inspiring researchers to share their contributions and views on graphics and interdisciplinary endeavor during two very exciting keynotes: Takeo Igarashi from the University of Tokyo, and Karan Singh from the University of Toronto. The Organizing Committee is extremely grateful for their time.At last, we would like to thank all authors and speakers for their contributions, the reviewers for their careful work, and the Program Committee for selecting and ordering contributions for the final program. Special thanks go to Helen Wu, who did a tremendous job in assisting the organization of the event, setting up the details, taking close care of the deadlines, and gathering and compiling the proceedings.
