We are proud to announce the first Central European Seminar on Computer Graphics for students to be held in Bratislava and Vienna. It is a continuation of a set of very succesful Joint Seminars, which have been held in the last years in cooperation between several computer graphics groups in Central Europe. CESCG is organized by the Institute of Computer Graphics, Vienna University of Technology, and the Department of Computer Graphics and Image Processing, Comenius University, in Bratislava.

We are pleased to invite the following groups to participate by sending a few students to the seminar:

Outline of the Seminar

CESCG is held once a year in Bratislava and Vienna at two consecutive days a few weeks after Easter. Students have enough time to arrive in Bratislava on the first day in time, even from the far locations. After the first day of seminar, there is social program in the evening, e.g., going to a pub, and a possibility to sleep in Bratislava. Next day CESCG continues in Vienna after moving there together.

Aims and Scope of CESCG

The main idea of CESCG is to bring undergraduate students, who are interested in computer graphics, together across borders of universities and countries. Of course the seminar is also intended to be an event, where motivated students can present their excellent work to other students interested in computer graphics. Participating students should have passed the first half of their studies, i.e. they should be studying computer science for at least five or six semesters.

Obviously the overall topic of the CESCG is computer graphics. Specifically the following fields are covered by this seminar:

Topics of CESCG '97

Each year one subtopics in the field of computer graphics is chosen to be the main scope of the seminar. At least most of the contributions should fit into this field such that at least some continuity can be provided at the contents level.

This year we will concentrate on "New Trends in Computer Graphics Applications".

If you want to participate but are not able to provide your contributions in this field, contact cescg#cg.tuwien.ac.at as soon as possible. It should be possible to designate one of the seminar sessions to another topic, but this has to be coordinated until March 14, 1997.


Students should prepare their contributions in HTML. Seminar language is English. To get an impression about how they could lool like see page `CESCG - Web Proceedings' at URL http://www.cg.tuwien.ac.at/studentwork/CESCG/proceedings.html. It is an index to previous CESCG contributions and results of previous Joint Seminars.

Note that only those contributions are included in `CESCG - Web Proceedings' that confirm to the `CESCG - Guidelines for Authors' at URL http://www.cg.tuwien.ac.at/studentwork/CESCG/guidelines/index.html. A rough summary of these guidelines is: Must be well readable as printed text (hand-outs), approximately the length of a paper (~ 10 pages), sufficiently structured (e.g., hierarchical), etc. Note that this is just a rough summary, please read `CESCG - Guidelines for Authors' for further details.

Participation and Dates

To prepare a succesful CESCG this year, it is necessary to coordinate several groups in different countries. It is obvious that this can only work if all the participating groups stick to the schedule of the semiar as follows:

Contact and Communication

If you have any questions or recommendations, please send an email to cescg#cg.tuwien.ac.at. CESCG '97 is organized by Zsolt Szalavári and Helwig Löffelmann in Vienna and Andrej Ferko in Bratislava this year.

We would like to thank Michael Gervautz, Eduard Gröller, and Jan Prikryl (alphabetical order) for their help with the organization of this event.
