                          SOLID MODELING 2003

        Eighth ACM Symposium on Solid Modeling and Applications

        University of Washington, Seattle, WA  June 16-20, 2003

	              Sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH

The Solid Modeling  symposia series is an international  forum for the
exchange of recent research and applications of solid modelling, shape
modelling,   and  geometric  computation   in  design,   analysis  and
manufacturing, as well as  in the emerging biomedical, geophysical and
other  areas. This highly  successful symposium,  which has  been held
bi-annually  since 1991,  brings together  prominent  researchers, key
practitioners, and  numerous students in the field.   The symposium is
held  annually, alternating  its location  between the  USA  and other

The  Solid Modeling  2003  symposium will  be  held on  the campus  of
University  of  Washington  in  Seattle,  WA,  USA.   In  addition  to
technical papers  in plenary sessions, the program  for Solid Modeling
2003 will include:

    * academic and industrial tutorials
    * keynote lectures
    * panel and poster sessions
    * best paper award at the symposium banquet
    * sponsorship of students to attend the symposium
    * social program

More information on  the symposium can be found  on the Solid Modeling
2003 web page:


The papers submission schedule is as follows:

October 15, 2002:     Abstracts due
November 30, 2002:    Full papers due
February 10, 2003:    Notice of acceptance and reviews
March 31, 2003:       Final camera-ready papers and extended abstracts

For details on how to  submit abstracts and papers, please consult the
web page http://www.ce.washington.edu/sm03/submit_proc.

Abstracts  are used  to facilitate  the review  process and  should be
150-300 words  in length.  Papers are limited  to 12 typeset  pages in
length,   including  figures  and   references,  and   should  present
previously   unpublished  original   results.  All   papers   will  be
peer-reviewed  and  can be  selected  for  presentation  at a  plenary
session, or for presentation at  a poster session, with publication in
the conference  proceedings published by ACM Press.  A revised version
of selected papers will also be published in special issues of related
scientific journals.  Best  paper award will be selected  by a jury of
experts and will be presented at the symposium banquet.
