TheInternationalSymposiumonSmartGraphics2005washeldfromAugust22– 24, 2005 in the cloister Frauenwort ¨ h on the island of Frauenchiemsee, Germany. It was the sixth event in a series which originally started in 2000 as a AAAI Spring Symposium. Inresponsetotheoverwhelmingsuccessofthe2000symposium,itsorganizers decided to turn it into a self-contained event. With the support of IBM, the ?rst two International Symposia on Smart Graphics were held at the T.J. Watson Research Center in Hawthorne, NY in 2001 and 2002. The 2003 symposium moved to the European Media Lab in Heidelberg to underline the international character of the Smart Graphics enterprise and its community. The core idea behind these symposia is to bring together researchers and practitioners fromthe ?eld ofcomputer graphics,arti?cialintelligence, cognitive science, graphic design and the ?ne arts. Each of these disciplines contributes to what we mean by the term “Smart Graphics”: the intelligent process of creating e?ective, expressive and esthetic graphical presentation. Many Smart Graphics symposiaemphasizea particularaspectofthe?eldin thecallfor papers.In2005 our focus was on “Visual Analytics”– the art and science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual interfaces.
