Symposium on Point-Based Graphics 2008

The IEEE/Eurographics Symposium on Point-Based Graphics (PBG) is a forum for presenting new results related to the use of point-based primitives in modeling, rendering, data acquisition, simulation, geometry, and graphics hardware. Building on the four successful events PBG 2004 (Zurich), PBG 2005 (Stony Brook), PBG 2006 (Boston), and PBG 2007 (Prague), the next symposium will be held August 10-11, 2008, in Los Angeles, CA, USA. The event will be co-located with ACM SIGGRAPH 2008. See here for a list of other co-located workshops and events. As in previous years PBG08 will again be done in conjunction with the International Symposium on Volume Graphics (VG08).

PBG was established do develop and leverage the newly created field of point based graphics and to establish a community of its own. With the fifth symposium of this kind in 2008 and the broad spectrum of scientific publications on the subject, we believe that our initial mission is accomplished. At the same time we observe a natural evolution and confluence of point graphics and volume graphics into the broader field of "Sample Based Graphics". In order to address this development VG08 and PBG08 will organize a joint track on the topic to evaluate its suitability as new direction into which both symposia might evolve in the years to come.
