Call for Papers

The 6th GKPO 2000 Conference intends to group the best researchers active in the field of pictorial information exchange between computer and its environment. The reviewing process and strict acceptance criteria ensure high quality of the accepted papers. The Conference is planned as a single track of oral and poster presentations. The number of participants is limited to 80 persons.

The conference will be a forum for presentation of theoretical aspects, methods, applications and systems of image generation and processing. Unpublished research papers are solicited, particularly concerning the following topics:

The programme will include: invited papers by leading researchers, selected contributions in oral and poster sessions, an open session, presentaion of systems, and social events.

Paper submission. Authors are requested to submit four copies of manuscript in English (max. 6 pages). Upon acceptance by the reviewers and Programme Committee (selection criteria include originality of ideas, accuracy and clarity of explanation), authors will be asked to submit an IBM PC diskette (in DOS format), containing the text of the paper, prepared with LaTeX with pictures in PostScript.

The papers can be presented on an oral (podium) session or on a poster session, according to the author(s) wish upon submission of the paper. Submission rules, acceptance criteria, and the form of publication in the proceedings are exactly the same for both kinds of papers.
