                               CALL FOR VIDEOS
              9th Annual Video Review of Computational Geometry

                           to be presented at the

            Sixteenth Annual Symposium on Computational Geometry

                              June 12-14, 2000
               Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

                    Sponsored by ACM SIGACT and SIGGRAPH

Videos are sought for a video review of computational geometry.


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.


Authors should send one preview copy of a videotape to the address below by
February 13, 2000. 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
rudolf at If electronic submission is impossible, authors should
include five hardcopies of the accompanying text with their video.

Videotapes and accompanying text should be sent to

For customs purposes, it is best to declare a value of $5. If you have
questions, please contact the committee chair at rudolf at or
(519) 888-4567 ext 2103.


Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection, and given reviewers'
comments by March 1, 2000. For each accepted video, the final version of the
textual description will be due by March 15, 2000 for inclusion in the
proceedings. Final versions of accepted videos will be due April 10, 2000 in
the best format available. The accepted videos will be edited onto one tape,
which will be shown at the conference and will be distributed to the
