SMI 2005: International Conference on Shape Modelling June 13–17, 2005 MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA http://www.shapemodelling.org/ The International Conference on Shape Modelling and Applications (abbreviated SMI for Shape Modelling International) provides a forum for the dissemination of new computational techniques for modelling and processing digital representations of shapes and their properties to a diverse community of experts across a wide range of areas. SMI co-locates with the ACM Symposium on Solid and Physical Modelling as part of the Joint Convention on Shapes & Solids. doi:10.1016/j.cag.2004.11.020

3DIM 2005: The Fifth International Conference on 3-D Digital Imaging and Modeling June 13–17, 2005 Chateau Laurier Hotel, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada http://www.3DIMconference.org Since 1997, the 3DIM Conference is dedicated to 3-D imaging and modeling and their applications. It brings together researchers from academic, industrial and national laboratories in the areas of computer vision, computer graphics, and geometric modeling, as well as users of the technologies. The contributions focus on theoretical developments, technological innovations, and applications ranging from manufacturing to archaeology. Recent years have seen a rapid increase in research interest and in the number and variety of actual applications, driven by the wider availability of key technological components; consequently, the research focus is evolving towards a new set of open problems, aimed at providing increased performance in existing usages as well as radically new approaches and fields of applications. doi:10.1016/j.cag.2004.11.021

International Workshop on Volume Graphics June 20–21, 2005 Stony Brook, New York, USA http://www.cs.stonybrook.eduBvg05 The advances in volume visualization over the past decades, coupled with the rapid increase in computer power, suggest that volume visualization may be developed into volume graphics, as a general purpose graphics technology. In order to explore further the potential of volume-based techniques, especially beyond the scope of volume visualization, it is necessary to bring together researchers and applications developers from both the academic and industry sectors who are working, or wish to work, on volume-based graphics techniques. This year, the workshop will be co-located with Computer Graphics International 2005, to be held right after VG05 in the same week (June 22–25), as well as the Point-Based Rendering Symposium 2005 (June 21–22). doi:10.1016/j.cag.2004.11.022
