Design, Modeling, Representation, Processing, Analysis, and Visualization of Shapes, Solids, Structures, Materials, Properties, and Behaviors.
S3PM primarily focuses on the mathematical & algorithmic principles, as well as practical tools, for the design, modeling, representation, processing, analysis, and visualization of shapes, solids, structures, materials, properties, and behaviors.
S3PM-2017 will combine the two prime conferences in this area: (1) the Symposium on Solid and Physical Modeling (SPM); and (2) the Shape Modeling International (SMI) Symposium. It will also Include the Fabrication and Sculpting Event (FASE), the Pierre Bézier Award Ceremony held by the Solid Modeling Association (SMA), keynote speakers of international reputation, industry panels, and several mini-symposia on important cutting-edge topics and research directions.
Two consecutive co-located symposia
Symposium: June 19th to 21st, 2017
The ACM Symposium on "Solid Modeling and Applications (SMA)," SPM has been the primary venue for disseminating research results in the design, representation, analysis, visualization, and use of digital models of real or planned solid objects and of their bounding surfaces. Its initial focus was on the theoretical and algorithmic tools that produce and exploit unambiguous representations of the geometry of such objects. Its broadening to "Solid and Physical Modeling (SPM)" extended the focus from solids to also include models of their internal structures, physical properties, and behaviors.
Deadlines: February 18th (abstract), March 3rd (full papers), 2017
Symposium: June 21st to 23rd, 2017
The "Shape Modeling International (SMI)" Symposium is the premier international forum for the dissemination of new mathematical theories and novel computational techniques for modeling, simulating, and processing digital shape representations. SMI gathers a wide community of researchers, developers, practitioners, and students in academia and industry. Conference proceedings will be published in a special issue of the Computer & Graphics Journal after a rigorous two-stage review process.
Deadlines: March 28th (abstract), April 3rd (full papers), 2017
Event: June 21st to 23rd, 2017
The "Fabrication and Sculpting Event (FASE)" presents original research at the intersection of theory and practice in shape modeling, fabrication and sculpting. FASE focuses on the practical problems of generating shapes and specifically addresses the interplay of theory and practice. FASE invites practitioners who have inspiring ideas to contribute their work concerned with techniques to design, sculpt and fabricate shapes. The work is expected to have clear algorithmic or mathematical aspects.
Deadline: May 15th (full papers), 2017
S3PM :: Replicability Stamp:
S3PM participates in the Replicability Stamp Initiative, an additional recognition for authors who are willing to go one step further, and in addition to publishing the paper, provide a complete open-source implementation. The Graphics Replicability Stamp Initiative (GRSI) is an independent group of volunteers who want to help the community by enabling sharing of code and data as a community resource for non-commercial use. The volunteers review the submitted code and certify its replicability, awarding a replicability stamp, which is an additional recognition for authors of accepted papers who are willing to provide a complete implementation of their algorithm, to replicate the results presented in their paper. The replicability stamp is not meant to be a measure of the scientiﬁc quality of the paper or of the usefulness of presented algorithms. Rather, it is meant to be an endorsement of the replicability of the results presented in it!
The paper and the recognition of the service provided to the community by releasing the code. Submissions for the replicability stamp will be considered only after the paper has been fully accepted. Submissions that are awarded the replicability stamp will receive additional exposure by being listed on this website. The purpose of this stamp is to promote reproducibility of research results and to allow scientists and practitioners to immediately beneﬁt from state-of-the-art research results, without spending months re-implementing the proposed algorithms and trying to ﬁnd the right parameter values. We also hope that it will indirectly foster scientiﬁc progress, since it will allow researchers to reliably compare with and to build upon existing techniques, knowing that they are using exactly the same implementation. This is an initiative supported by a growing list of publishers, journals, and conferences.
The submission procedure is lightweight (click here to see requirements) and we encourage the authors of accepted papers to participate by filling the form that they received in the acceptance letter. The papers with the replicability stamp will receive additional exposure during S3PM, and will be listed on the replicability stamp website.
The deadline for applying is May 26th, 2017 at 23:59 CET. For any request or comment regarding the replicability stamp, please contact directly the paper chairs of the corresponding conference.
The qualified papers will be decorated with in the program (logo designed by Michela Mortara).
S3PM :: Call for Mini-Symposia:
The Chairs of the Convention are inviting proposals for a small number of Mini-Symposia focused on emerging topics of high impact on the research and industrial communities.
We are inviting you to consider submitting a proposal and chairing it, if accepted. A mini-symposium will include 3 presentations (20 mins each) by the Chair and 2 invited speakers, or a brief introduction by the Chair and presentations by 3 invited speakers, followed by a panel and Q&A discussion.
The proposal should be submitted before April 15th, 2017 to email@example.com. Feel free to contact us using the same e-mail address for any questions.
Each proposal should include: (1) title of the mini-symposium,(2) name, affiliation, and homepage link of the Chair, (3) list of speakers’ names with their affiliations and homepage links, and (4) brief outline and motivation for the importance of the topic.
For each presentation, the proposal should include: (1) title of the presentation, (2) speaker’s name, (3) short abstract (about 200 words), and (4) link to the most relevant paper.
Bézier Award 2017 :: Call for Nominations:
With the approval of the family of the late Pierre Bézier, the Solid Modeling Association established in 2007 the Pierre Bézier Award for contributions in Solid, Geometric and Physical Modeling and for their Applications. Pierre Bézier was one of the founders of these fields. Beginning with his work on representing curves, and continuing through his work on one of the first CAD/CAM systems at Renault (UNISURF), Pierre Bézier led the transformation of design and manufacturing, through mathematics and computing tools, into computer aided design and three dimensional modeling. He made contributions to computer control, interactive free-form curve and surface design and 3D milling for manufacturing clay models and masters. Bézier's approach to research exemplifies how the problems from the real world can drive scientific inquiry and lead to engineering accomplishments.
Solid, geometric and physical modeling have matured and have come a long way since the 1950s, resulting in a rich set of theories, mathematics and algorithms that define and manipulate representations of physical objects, their properties, and their associated abstractions. These representations are intimately tied to processes (such as simulation, design, manufacturing, and analysis) and application domains (automotive, aerospace, bio-medical, graphic arts, etc). These representations support the creation, exchange, simulation, visualization, animation, interrogation, and annotation of the digital models of the objects and their evolution.
The Pierre Bézier Award and the acceptance lecture will be presented at the SPM-2017 Symposium on June 21st, 2017.
