[DMANET] Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry (CCCG 2013) - Conference announcement

25th Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry (CCCG 2013)

August 8-10, 2013, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario.

----------------------------------------------------

The 25th Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry will be held in
Waterloo, Ontario, on August 8-10, 2013. There will be a reception on
the evening of the 7th.

CCCG has a tradition of being welcoming to students. It is expected
that there will be partial travel support for students and postdocs.


SCOPE

CCCG focuses on the design of efficient algorithms, the development of
software, and the study of the mathematical foundations of
computational problems whose formulations involve geometric
constraints. The field of computational geometry is motivated by
problems from a broad range of application areas, as diverse as
computer graphics and animation, computer vision, computer-aided
design and manufacturing, geographic information systems, pattern
recognition, wireless communications, robotics, protein folding, urban
planning, graph drawing, or statistical analysis to name just a few.
Authors are invited to submit papers describing original research of
theoretical or practical significance in computational, combinatorial
and discrete geometry, as well as related areas.

AUDIENCE

CCCG is an international forum, accessible to a broad community of
researchers, to disseminate and discuss new theoretical and applied
results in discrete and computational geometry. The intended audience
for this conference includes graduate and undergraduate students,
researchers in the area, and members of industry whose work involves
geometric computation.


SUBMISSION DETAILS

Submissions should not exceed six pages, must be submitted
electronically, and must be prepared using LaTeX; the appropriate
template will be available from the conference website. Authors who
feel that additional details are necessary should include a clearly
marked appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the Program
Committee. Each submission will be refereed by at least three members
of the Program Committee. Details on the submission procedure will be
outlined on the conference website. Six-page papers accepted at CCCG
will appear in the printed proceedings of the conference, provided
that they are presented by a speaker at the conference. Electronic
proceedings without page limits will be hosted at http://cccg.ca.

Selected papers from the conference will be invited for submission to
a special issue of the journal Computational Geometry: Theory and
Applications.

Simultaneous submission to another conference or journal is not allowed.

CONFERENCE WEBPAGE

Additional details, including submission instructions and local
information, will be available at the conference webpage:
