       14th Annual Multimedia Review of Computational Geometry
                             part of the
             20th ACM Symposium on Computational Geometry
                           June 6 - 8, 2005
               National Research Council of Italy (CNR)
                  Area della Ricerca di Pisa, Italy
                 Sponsored by ACM SIGACT and SIGGRAPH

Video and multimedia presentations are sought for a video review of
computational geometry.  This review showcases the use of visualization
in computational geometry for exposition and education, for the visual
exploration of geometry in research, and as an interface and a debugging
tool in software development. 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 submitted to the technical program
committee are encouraged.

Three to five minutes is ideal for most animations and presentations of
applications; eight minutes is the upper limit.  Standard VHS videotape
is allowed, but electronic formats are encouraged (QuickTime, MPEG,
.avi, .mov, or RealPlayer). We allow submission of Macromedia Flash, MS
PowerPoint animations, Java applets, and limited forms of other
multimedia. These formats must have a 'demo mode' that requires no
interaction after e.g. pressing a 'demo' button. In case of doubt,
please email the Video and Multimedia Program chair.

Accepted video and multimedia presentations will be collected and made
available online in various formats in a web proceedings.


For electronic submission of a video or multimedia presentation, to
arrive by March 1, 2005, the author(s) should submit a one or two-page
description of the material shown in the presentation, and where
applicable, the techniques used in the implementation, to the Video
Review section of the electronic submission server (linked from An email address of the correspondence author
and a URL or ftp address where the presentation can be retrieved must
be included. Additional material describing the contents of the
presentations, such as the full text of accompanying papers, may also
be included. The final descriptions must be formatted according to the
guidelines for ACM proceedings.

As an alternative, descriptions and videos on VHS videotape, in either
NTSC or PAL format, can be sent to the video and multimedia
presentations program chair, to arrive by March 1, 2005:

Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection, and given
reviewers' comments by March 22, 2005. For each accepted presentation,
the final version of the 2-page textual description will be due by
March 29, 2005 (electronically) for inclusion in the
proceedings. Final versions of accepted video/MM presentations will be
due April 19, 2005 in the best format available.
