ACM Solid and Physical Modeling Symposium 2008 (SPM'08) was
held on June 2-4, 2008, in Stony Brook University, Stony
Brook, New York, USA. ACM SPM'08 is co-sponsored by ACM and IEEE
(pending), and in cooperation with SIAM.
This highly successful conference series have been a primary
venue for disseminating research results and exchanging new
ideas in geometric and solid modeling, physical modeling,
geometric design, analysis, simulation and processing, shape
computing and visualization, and various applications.
SPM'08 was immediately followed by the International
Conference on Shape Modeling and Applications 2008 (SMI'08),
in Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York, USA,
on June 4-6, 2008. Both SPM'08 and SMI'08 events were
co-located in Stony Brook, and are part of the 2008 Stony Brook
Modeling Week that features International Joint Convention on
Shapes and Solids (ICSS'08). Stony Brook Modeling Week was
hosted by the Center for Visual Computing (CVC), the Computer
Science Department of Stony Brook University and was chaired
by Professor Hong Qin.
