                       CALL FOR VIDEOS

       8th Annual Video Review of Computational Geometry

Background: This video review showcases the use of visualization in
computational geometry for exposition and education, as an interface
and a debugging tool in software development, and for the visual
exploration of geometry in research.  Algorithm animations, visual
explanations of structural theorems, descriptions of applications of
computational geometry, and demonstrations of software systems are all
appropriate.  Videos that accompany papers or communications submitted
to the technical program committee are encouraged.

The Video Review will be shown and distributed at the 15th Annual ACM
Symposium on Computational Geometry, to be held June 13-16, 1999 in
Miami Beach, Florida.  For more information about SCG, please see the
symposium web page at .

Submissions: Authors should send one preview copy of a videotape to
the address below by February 13, 1999.  The videotape should be at
most eight minutes long (three to five minutes, preferred), and be in
VHS NTSC or VHS PAL format.

Each video tape must be accompanied by a one- or two-page description
of the material shown in the video, and where applicable, the
techniques used in the implementation.  Please format descriptions
following the guidelines for ACM proceedings.  Additional material
describing the contents of the videos, such as the full text of
accompanying papers, may also be included.

Textual material may be submitted electronically by e-mailing either
the URL of a PostScript file (preferred) or the PostScript file itself
to jeffe at  If electronic submission is impossible, authors
should include 5 hard copies of the accompanying text with their video.

Videotapes and accompanying text should be sent to:

  Jeff Erickson
  Department of Computer Science
  University of Illinois
  1304 W. Springfield Ave.
  Urbana, IL  61801
  Phone: (217) 333-6769

For customs purposes, it is best to declare a value of $5.  If you have
questions, please contact the committee chair at jeffe at or
(217) 333-6769.

Notification: Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection, and
given reviewers' comments by March 1, 1999.  For each accepted video,
the final version of the textual description will be due by March 15,
1999 for inclusion in the proceedings.  Final versions of accepted
videos will be due April 15, 1999 in the best format available.  The
accepted videos will be edited onto one tape, which will be shown at
the conference, distributed to the participants, and available from
ACM after the conference.
