We are proud to announce the third Central European Seminar on Computer Graphics for students to be held in Budmerice (right before SCCGá'99) in April, 1999. This international seminar is a continuation of CESCGá'97, CESCGá'98, and a set of very successful Joint Seminars, which previously have been held in cooperation between some 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 (in alphabetical order) to participate by sending students to the seminar:

Austria Graz [CESCG icon] Institute for Computer Graphics, University of Technology
Linz [CESCG icon] Department of Information Systems (GUP), Johannes Kepler University
Vienna [CESCG icon] Institute of Computer Graphics, Vienna University of Technology
Croatia Zagreb [CESCG icon] Department of Electronics, Microelectronics, Computer and Intelligent Systems, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb
Brno [CESCG icon] Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Technical University of Brno
[CESCG icon] Department of Software Systems and Communications, Masaryk University
Ostrava [CESCG icon] Department of Computer Science, Technical University of Ostrava
Plzen [CESCG icon] Computer Graphics Group at the Department of Computer Science, University of West Bohemia
Prague [CESCG icon] Computer Graphics Group at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University
Hungary Budapest [CESCG icon] Computer Graphics Group at the Department of Process Control, Technical University of Budapest
Slovakia Bratislava [CESCG icon] Department of Computer Graphics and Image Processing, Comenius University
[CESCG icon] Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics, Slovak University of Technology
Slovenia Ljubljana [CESCG icon] Laboratory of Computer Graphics and Multimedia, Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana
Maribor [CESCG icon] Laboratory for Computer Graphics and Artificial Intelligence, Institute of Computer Science, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Maribor

Initially we invite all the groups mentioned above to send two students to give a talk at CESCG '99. Also, participants who'd just like to attend the presentations and discussions are kindly invited. Please note that participation must be announced via email to cescg#cg.tuwien.ac.at until January 13, 1999 - otherwise an active participation is not possible!

The tight restriction of two talks per group is due to the increased number of invited groups and due to the two-days schedule of the seminar. However, it might be the case that not all of the invited groups are able to send two students. In this case additional free slots for participation would be available after the participation announcement deadline. Groups interested to send more than two students should clearly state this within the email-announcement of participation so that their wish can be taken into account when compiling the preliminary program.

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. The seminar is also intended to be an international event, where students can present their excellent work to other students. Participating students are studying computer science for at least five or six semesters, thus expertise in giving a talk is fortunately a present qualification which guarantees a lot of high-quality presentations.

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

Topics of CESCGá'99

Each year one subtopic in the field of computer graphics is chosen to be the main scope of the seminar. 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 "Recent Developments in Computer Graphics".

Outline of the Seminar

CESCG will be held in Budmerice on April 26th and 27th, 1999. Students have enough time to arrive at Budmerice on the first day in time, even from the far locations. There are approximately twenty talks (including time for discussions) scheduled for both days. The program of the seminar is divided into morning and afternoon sessions. Time for lunch and coffee breaks is reserved as well. 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 Budmerice.


The seminar language is English. The contributions are submitted in HTML and some directly printable format for printed proceedings (device-independent PostScript or PDF; no source like TeX or even Word). To ensure some typographic quality of the seminar proceedings, all submissions have to observe the guidelines for authors available at http://www.cg.tuwien.ac.at/studentwork/CESCG/guidelines/. LaTeX 2e class implementing these guidelines and Word97 template can be downloaded from this web-page.

To get an impression about how the HTML pages shall look like see the `CESCGá-áWeb Proceedings' at 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 any form of seminar proceedings, that conform to the guidelines specified above.

Participation and Dates

To prepare a successful seminar, 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 seminar. The schedule for CESCGá'99 is as follows:

December 10, 1998 First Call for Participation sent to invited groups.
January 13, 1999 Deadline for e-mailed Announcements of Participance.
All participants - not necessarily with names at this time - must be announced to the organizers in Vienna (e-mail to cescg#cg.tuwien.ac.at) by this day. Even if the exact topics and names of students who will contribute to the seminar are not known to the local organizers by this date, at least the required number of slots must be announced.
January 20, 1999 Preliminary Program will be sent to participants.
April 8, 1999 Submission Deadline.
By this day, all contributions must be submitted to server ftp.cg.tuwien.ac.at (directory /pub/CESCG/99/upload/) via FTP. Note that both the HTML- as well as the printable Version (Postscript or PDF) of the contribution must be submitted. Please refer to the Upload-Guidelines, available via URL ftp://ftp.cg.tuwien.ac.at/pub/CESCG/99/upload/, before You send files.
April 15, 1999 Final Program will be sent to participants.
April 26-27, 1999 CESCGá'99 will take place in Budmerice castle.
