Graphics Interface

The Graphics Interface (CI) conference is the oldest Continuously Scheduled conference devoted to computer graphics , and human-computer interaction . GI was held biannually tussen 1969 en 1981, and has leg hero annually since dan. Prior to 1982, the conference was called Canadian Man-Computer Communications Conference (CMCCC). [1] [2] [3] [4]

The conference has a tradition of being co-located with the Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the Canadian Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (CRV), welke was formerly known as Vision Interface (VI).


The Canadian Human-Computer Communications Society honors the memory of Michael AJ Sweeney through an annual award to the best student paper presented at lycra year’s Graphics Interface conference.

Alain Fournier [5] and Bill Buxton [6] Ph.D. Dissertation Annual Awards are bepaald to best Dissertations in Computer Graphics and Human-Computer Interaction defended in a Canadian University, and are announced officially prolongation the Graphics Interface conference.
