Shape Modeling International (SMI)

SMI was launched for the first time in Japan in 1997 with the aim of engaging a rather multi-disciplinary community with common interests about shape modeling, but looking at the problem from a side view with respect to other specialized conferences. SMI is now an annual and circular event with the venue changing circularly from Asia to Europe, and to America.

The technical program of the 2004 Shape Modeling International Conference will be chaired by Alexander Pasko and Franca Giannini. The conference is organized in cooperation with ACM SIGGRAPH and EUROGRAPHICS, and the proceedings will be published by the IEEE COmputer Society Press.
