Graphics Interface (GI) 2015, the 41st annual conference, will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, June 3-5, 2015. GI is the longest running conference in the field, consistently attracting high-quality submissions on recent advances in computer graphics, human-computer interaction (HCI), and visualization. All accepted GI papers are archived in the ACM Digital Library. The Michael A. J. Sweeney Award will be awarded at the conference to the best student papers in graphics and HCI. Authors of top papers will be invited to submit revised and extended versions to the journal Computers & Graphics.
GI 2015 will be held in conjunction with Computer and Robot Vision (CRV) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). A single registration provides access to all keynotes, invited and paper talks, as well as a common poster and demo session of the three conferences.

GI 2015 will have joint sessions for the graphics and HCI tracks. We seek submissions covering all aspects of graphics, HCI, as well as visualization. Authors must request that their submissions be handled by either the graphics or HCI sub-committee. In exceptional cases where significant overlap exists, a submission may be reviewed by members of both sub-committees. All paper submissions are fully peer reviewed by at least two members of the program committee and two external reviewers. Papers normally have a maximum length of eight pages.
Submissions should use the format shown in the conference template. Submissions should be converted to PDF and uploaded to the Precision Conference system at https://precisionconference.com/~gi/ by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on December 19, 2014. The PCS system will be open for uploading submissions beginning on December 1.
