General Information

The aim of this workshop is to bring together, in an informal setting conducive to stimulate collaboration, researchers from academia and industry, as well as students working in Computational Geometry and Geometric Applications. The goal is to learn from each other of recent progress on problems of common interest, leaving sufficient time for discussions and posing of new problems emerging from on-going research.

Topics of interest span all algorithmic aspects of geometrical problems, either classical or emerging from applied computational areas, including but not limited to:

  • Algorithmic methods in geometry
  • Animation of geometric algorithms
  • Applications of geometric algorithms
  • Bio-geometry
  • Combinatorial geometry
  • Computer-aided design
  • Computer graphics
  • Computational metrology
  • Computational statistics
  • Computational topology
  • Computer vision
  • Experimental studies of geometric algorithms
  • Geometric approximation algorithms
  • Geometric computation in Computational biology
  • Geometric data structures
  • Geometry of geographic information systems
  • Graph drawing
  • Implementation issues for geometric algorithms
  • I/O-scalable geometric algorithms
  • Kinetic data structures
  • Manufacturing applications of geometry
  • Mesh generation
  • Modeling new problems with geometry
  • Motion generation, folding and unfolding
  • Robustness in geometric computations
  • Robotics
  • Solid modeling
  • Visualization (Scientific/Information/Geometric)

The workshop will extend over two days (Friday-Saturday), with several breaks scheduled for discussions and an Open Problems session.

Funding for the Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry is provided by the National Science Foundation CCF-0838081.
