Paper Abstract

Ivan Sutherland's Sketchpad in 1963 is often referred to as the first milestone in computer graphics. It was a line drawing, two dimensional system that flickered from the slow refresh capacity of a random scan display. Yet in this first seminal effort in computer graphics, we also could have observed a har-binger of the field of graphical simulation and design. The demonstrations in Sketchpad were of a design nature signaling to future researchers the dividends that computer graphics and simulation could bring. But only today are we entering the greatly heralded era of using simulation extensively to aid the design process. Hence this conference is very timely. The following papers show in technical detail some of the ways in which simulation will be used to extend the creative design process.
