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.
