"New Media Technologies for Human-Centred Computing"

Honourary Conference Co-Chairs: Professor Richard Guedj (INT, France) Professor Eddy Flerackers (EDM, Belgium)

The British Computer Society Computer Graphics & Displays Group will hold an international two day meeting on this theme to take place in the UK, 13 - 15 April 1999. A book based on, but not restricted to, papers presented at the event will be published after the meeting. There is a lot of current interest in the emerging area of new media brought about by digital convergence. Tools for moving images, graphics, audio, and new kinds of interaction focus attention on integration, content quality, dissemination and distribution.

To create a user-friendly information society requires attention to all these aspects. We need:

Call for Papers, Panels, and Courses

Selection of papers for presentation at the meeting will be by invitation or by review of abstracts (up to 4 pages). Chapters for the book will be selected by review of full papers. Papers can be research, experiments/trials, social implication/philosophical aspects, applications. Papers are invited which describe original research in these areas as well as applications.

Please send three paper copies or one e-mail copy of an abstract giving a title, a description of the paper content, the name(s) and affiliation(s) of author(s), a contact address (e-mail and/or postal), telephone and/or FAX number.
