Graphics Interface  2014
May 7th to 9th, Montreal, Quebec, Canada


Each session list contains links to the authors' project pages to provide easy access to related materials. Project pages typically contain at least the title, abstract, authors, and a preprint of the paper, but may also have videos, supplementary documents, data or code, and may put the paper within the context of a higher-level research project. Please find the complete set of abstracts of accepted posters in the poster proceedings PDF. GI attendees may also wish to consult the AIGICRV overview, the AI program and the CRV program.
