This book contains the proceedings of the International Conference on Computer Graphics Theory and Applications (GRAPP 2011) which was organized and sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC). We expect the technical program, that approaches areas like “Geometry & Modelling”, “Rendering”, “Animation & Simulation”, “Interactive Environments” or “Social Agents in Computer Graphics” to appeal to a global audience of engineers, scientists, and business people interested in the research topics of GRAPP. We hope that the proceedings here published, demonstrate new and innovative solutions, and highlight technical problems in each field that are challenging and worthwhile. We received a high number of paper submissions for this edition of GRAPP, 69 in total, with contributions from all five continents which attest to the success and global dimension of GRAPP. To evaluate each submission, we used a double-blind evaluation
method and each paper was reviewed by at least two experts from the International Program Committee. In the end, 13 papers were selected for oral presentation and for publication as full papers, 23 papers were accepted for short presentation and 11 were accepted for poster presentation. The result was a full-paper acceptance ratio of 19% and a high-quality program that is attractive to experts from Computer Graphics area. We hope that these Conference Proceedings, submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI, may help the Computer Graphics community to find interesting research work. Furthermore, a short list of presented papers will be selected to be expanded into a forthcoming book of VISIGRAPP Selected Papers to be published by Springer during 2011. Moreover, the conference also featured a number of keynote lectures delivered by internationally well known experts thus contributing to increase the overall quality of the conference and to provide a deeper understanding of the conference interest fields. In order to promote the development of professional networks the organizing committee has prepared a Conference Dinner in the evening of March 6th. We hope that you enjoy this exciting conference and have an unforgettable stay in the beautiful city of Vilamoura, Algarve. Finally, we would like to express our thanks, first of all, to the authors of the technical papers, whose work and dedication make possible to put together a program that we believe very exciting and of high technical quality. Next, we would like to thank all the members of the program committee and auxiliary reviewers, who helped us with their expertise and time. We would also like to thank the invited speakers for their invaluable contribution and for sharing their vision in their talks. Special thanks should be addressed to the INSTICC Steering Committee whose invaluable work made possible this event. We wish you all an exciting conference and an unforgettable stay in Vilamoura, Algarve. We hope to meet you again for the next edition of GRAPP details of which will be shortly available at http://www.grapp.visigrapp.org.
