IEEE International Conference on Shape Modeling and Applications
2008 (Shape Modeling International 2008 or SMI'08) was held on June 4-6, 2008, in Stony Brook
University, Stony Brook, New York, USA.
The IEEE International Conference on Shape
Modeling and Applications (Shape Modeling International, or SMI)
provides a premium international forum for the dissemination of
new mathematical theories and novel computational techniques for
modeling, simulating, and processing digital representations of
shapes and their properties to a community of researchers,
developers, practitioners, and students in academia and industry
across a wide range of fields.
In 2001, SMI has merged with the
Implicit Surface Workshop and is now run as an annual event
alternating between Asia, Europe, and America. SMI'08
immediately followed the ACM Solid and Physical Modeling Symposium
2008 (SPM'08), held on June 2-4, 2008, in Stony Brook
University, Stony Brook, New York, USA. Both SPM'08 and SMI'08
events were co-located in Stony Brook, and were part of the
2008 Stony Brook Modeling Week that featured International Joint
Convention on Shapes and Solids (ICSS'08). Stony Brook Modeling
Week was hosted by the Center for Visual Computing (CVC) and
Computer Science Department of Stony Brook University and was chaired by Professor Hong Qin.
