11th Annual Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry

November 2--3, 2001

[ Registration over | Program available | Proceedings | Participants ]

Auditorium, Library/CATT Building, Polytechnic University

We are pleased to announce the eleventh in a series of annual fall workshops on Computational Geometry. This workshop series, founded originally under the sponsorship of the Mathematical Sciences Institute (MSI) at Stony Brook (with funding from the U. S. Army Research Office), continued during 1996-1999 under the sponsorship of the Center for Geometric Computing, a collaborative center of Brown, Duke, and Johns Hopkins Universities, also funded by the U.S. Army Research Office. In 2000, for the tenth in the workshop series, the workshop was again held on the campus of the University at Stony Brook.

This year, for the first time, it will be held at Polytechnic University in Brooklyn.

Scope and Format

The aim of this workshop is to bring together students and researchers from academia and industry, to stimulate collaboration on problems of common interest arising in geometric computations. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to: Following the tradition of the previous fall workshops on Computational Geometry, the format of the workshop will be informal, extending over 2 days, with several breaks scheduled for discussions. There will also be an Open Problem Session in order to promote a free exchange of questions and research challenges.

Invited Speakers

Invited speakers are eminent leaders in their respective fields and have witnessed first-hand the need for geometric computing and its applications. We hope that the interaction with the computational geometry community will be stimulating both to computational geometers and to those involved in applying techniques of computational geometry to other disciplines.


Authors are invited to submit abstracts for talks to be given at the workshop. Please send an abstract (up to 2 pages) and a draft of a paper (if you have one). (Since there are no formal proceedings for the workshop, submission of material that is to be submitted to (or to appear in) a refereed conference (e.g., SoCG'02) is allowed and encouraged.)

E-mail submissions are encouraged; send to cgworkshop@poly.edu. Ideally, the abstract should be a PDF, PostScript, LaTeX, or plain ascii text file, for ease in assembling the abstract booklet. Abstracts can also be sent by regular mail to:

Herve Bronnimann

Submissions should arrive by October 8th, 2001. Authors will be notified of acceptance before or no later than October 16, 2001. (Note: these dates have been extended to take into account the network problems following the events of September 11th.)
