Computer Graphics as Interactive Visual Media

Description: Interactive computer graphics (CG) have greatly evolved from its origins in the 60s to its widespread use, even in cell phones and other portable devices, and so have the tools available for the development of interactive CG applications. As a result, nowadays, different communities apart from computer scientists and engineers use and create interactive CG systems, with different approaches and objectives. The main goal of this workshop is to discuss and promote the exchange between different venues of application of interactive computer graphics. We propose to explore the multidisciplinary dialogues between languages, concepts and views, from computing, arts and design, which arise from the creation of highly interactive imagery by computational means. In a sense, this proposal follows a complementary path to the one treaded by John Maeda’s Design By Numbers, which presented fundamentals of programming logic to the visual design community.

2nd Workshop on Interactive Visualization

Description: The field of visualization encompasses the study of applications, techniques and algorithms for producing visual representations of data coming from various sources, as well as tools supporting the interactive exploration or analysis of such (often voluminous) datasets. In this context, many problems have to be solved, including acquisition, storage, communication, computational analysis, human perception and human-computer interaction issues. Scientific visualization, data visualization, information visualization, visual simulation, exploratory visual analysis, visual data mining, and more recently, visual analytics have been used to distinguish research and development involving interactive data visualization. Since the 1st Workshop on Interactive Visualization held during SIBGRAPI 2007, the field has evolved and gained importance globally. This workshop will provide an adequate forum for the discussion of current projects in Brazil, fostering exchange and cooperation between groups.
