Call for Participation
AFRIGRAPH 2012 (AG2012) is the 8th International Conference on Virtual Reality, Computer Graphics, Visualization and Interaction in Africa. AG2012 is organized by the African Graphics Association (AFRIGRAPH) and is sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH. The conference will be held on a wine estate in Stellenbosch, a picturesque town in the Cape Winelands region of South Africa.

Academic Papers
AG2012 welcomes contributions in the form of full papers or short papers. The conference particularly welcomes contributions that focus on Computer Graphics in the developing world; addressing the use of Computer Graphics in urban renewal, rural development, health, education, environment and the African arts and media.
However, contributions will be accepted from all areas related to virtual reality, computer graphics, visualization and interaction. Topics include (but are not limited to):

 Rendering
 Parallel algorithms for graphics
 Computer vision for graphics
 Computational Geometry
 Computer animation
 Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality and Presence
 Graphics in the Developing Country Context
 Education and Computer Graphics
 Interactive Application Development
 Visualization and Simulation
 Perceptually-based graphics techniques
 Image analysis and processing
 Multimedia
 Medical Imaging
 Computer Aided Design and Prototyping
 3D Modelling
 Data Acquisition
 Human Computer Interaction
 Special and Visual Effects

Submission Guidelines
Papers are to be submitted electronically via the Afrigraph web-site ( All contributions must be written and presented in English. Papers will be reviewed by an International Programme Committee and the Conference proceedings will be published by ACM SIGGRAPH and also appear in the ACM Digital Library. The best two papers (as decided by the Programme Chairs in consultation with the Programme Committee) will be republished in the journal Computer Graphics Forum. There will also be an award for the best paper.

Short Papers
Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of no more than 5 A4 pages in length. These should represent late breaking results, work in progress or novel results that are more appropriate to a shorter format.

Full Papers
Full papers should report research contributions, practice and experience, or novel applications. They must be no longer than 10 A4 pages in length.

There is one day devoted to tutorials in the conference program. Tutorials must be in either a half-day or full-day format and the proposal should include details of the presenters, tutorial content, expected level of required delegate expertise and educational outcomes.

Important dates
Paper and Tutorial submission deadline: 31 October 2011 (23h59 CET)
Notification of acceptance: 12 December 2011
Final version due: 21 December 2011
