The International Symposium on Smart Graphics 2007 was held during June 25–27, 2007 in Kyoto, Japan. It was the eighth event in a series which originally started in 2000 as a AAAI Spring Symposium and has taken place every year since then in Europe and North America. The 2007 Symposium was our ?rst to reach out to the Asian Smart Graphics community. As a result the number of submissions has again increased and the acceptance rate dropped to 31–36% (depending on category). The core idea behind the Smart Graphics symposia is to bring together - searchers and practitioners from the ?eld of computer graphics, arti?cial intel- gence,cognitivescience,graphicdesignandthe?nearts.Eachofthesedisciplines contributes to what we mean by the term “smart graphics”: the intelligent p- cess of creating e?ective, expressive and esthetic graphical presentation. While artists and designers have been creating communicative graphics for centuries, arti?cial intelligence focuses on automating this process by means of the c- puter. While computer graphics provides the tools for creating graphicalpres- tations in the ?rst place, the cognitive sciences contribute the rules and models ofperceptionnecessaryforthedesignofe?ectivegraphics.Theexchangeofideas between these four disciplines has led to many exciting and fruitful discussions, andthesmartgraphicssymposiadrawtheirlivelinessfromaspiritofopenminds and the willingness to learn from and share with other disciplines.
