Over the last two decades, considerable progress has been achieved in the broader area of visual computing, mainly as a result of the exponential growth of processor speed and memory capacity as well as the rapid explosion of multimedia and the extensive use of video and image-based communications over the World Wide Web (WWW). Real time access and sharing of digital information including text and sound but also powerful realistic or simulated visuals are now within our capacity, enabling truly interactive multiparticipant, multimodal and multimedia communication.
The purpose of theInternational Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC) is to provide a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners throughout the world to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in the broader area of visual computing. The symposium will consist of invited and contributed presentations dealing with all aspects of visual computing. In addition to the nain technical program, the symposium will include several keynote speakers, posters sessions, and special tracks. Proposals for special tracks are currently being solicited and should be submitted to the symposium general chair. All papers accepted will appear in the symposium proceedings which will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Also, a selection of best papers will be published in a special issue of an archival journal.
ISVC05 will take place in the beatiful Lake Tahoe which provides easy access from either Reno/Lake Tahoe International Airport (about 45min driving time) or from Sacramento International Airport (about 90min driving time). Lake Tahoe is often referred to as the perfect year round vacation destination with terrific weather and breathtaking scenery. Split down the middle by the California and Nevada border, Lake Tahoe area boasts of over 300 days of warm sunshine, world-class skiing and snowboarding, casinos and of course, the famous blue Lake Tahoe itself.
