New Advances in Computer Graphics: Proceedings of Cg International '89

This volume presents the proceedings of the 7th International Conference of the Computer Graphics Society, CG International '89, held at the University of Leeds, UK, June 27-30, 1989. Since 1982 this conference has continued to attract high-quality research papers in all aspects of computer graphics and its applications. Originally the conference was held in Japan (1982-1987). In 1988 it was held in Geneva, Switzerland; future conferences are planned for Singapore in 1990, USA in 1991, Japan in 1992, and Canada in 1993. Recent developments in computer graphics have concentrated on: greater sophistication of image generation techniques, advances in hardware and emphasis on the exploitation of parallelism, integration of robotics and AI techniques for animation, greater integration of CAD and CAM in CIM, use of powerful computer graphics techniques to represent complex physical processes (visualization), advances in computational geometry and in the representation and modelling of complex physical and mathematical objects, and improved tools and methods for Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI). These trends and advances are reflected in this present volume. A number of papers deal with important research aspects in many of these areas.
