The International Conference on Shape Modeling and Applications will be held at the University of Aizu, Aizu-Wakamatsu City (Fukushima Prefecture, Japan) on 1-4 March 1999. The program includes one day of tutorials and three days of the papers program.
The previous Shape Modeling International '97 conference was a successfull and truly international event.

The conference is organized by The University of Aizu in cooperation with ACM SIGGRAPH , Eurographics , and Computer Graphics Society . The book of the conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press.

Shape and image designed by B.Wyvill


One of the main goals of computer graphics and computer vision is to discover the essential rules of representing and generating shapes. Reasoning about the shape is a common way of describing and representing real and abstract objects in computer science, engineering, mathematics, biology, physics, chemistry, medicine and even in daily life. This conference is aimed at providing an opportunity to exchange results obtained in diverse advanced theories and techniques devised for handling the shape of objects.

The scope of the conference includes, but is not limited to, topics such as
