[DMANET] 2nd Call for papers, XVI Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry

[Apologies for multiple postings]

XVI Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry
(Encuentros de Geometría Computacional, EGC)
July 1-3, 2015 Barcelona, Spain

The XVI Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry will be held on July 1-3,
2015, at the Faculty of Mathematics and Statistics, Universitat
Politècnica de
Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain.

The main focus of this international conference is on current topics in
Discrete and Computational Geometry, including both theoretical and applied
results. EGC started in 1990, making this edition, 25 years later, a special
occasion. The intended audience for this conference includes graduate and
undergraduate students, researchers in the area or from neighboring
disciplines, and members of industry whose work involves geometric

Topics include, but are not limited to:
* geometric algorithms and data structures;
* discrete and combinatorial geometry;
* theoretical foundations of computational geometry;
* questions of interest in the implementation of geometric algorithms and
geometric software development;
* applications of computational geometry, and closely related areas, such as
computer graphics, virtual reality, robotics, computer vision,
simulation and
visualization, solid modelling, computer aided design and manufacturing,
pattern recognition, graph drawing and circuit layout, image processing,
geographic information systems, multimedia
and animation, wireless communications, computer algebra, computational
topology, statistical analysis, operations research, computational biology,

The language of the conference is English, yet occasional submissions/
presentations in Spanish may be exceptionally considered.

All deadlines are 23:59 CEST and fixed. There will be no extensions.
Paper submission deadline: April 16, 2015
Notification of paper acceptance: May 14
Grant application deadline: May 21
Final versions due: June 2
Early registration deadline: June 4
Conference: July 1-3, 2015

Francisco Santos, Universidad de Cantabria.
Bettina Speckmann, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven.
Jorge Urrutia, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.

We invite authors to submit extended abstracts that should not exceed 4
of original research. In order to guarantee that submissions are in
scope and
not below basic standards, there will be a limited review process. An
can be added as a help for the reviewers and is required when necessary to
verify omitted proofs of critical claims. Submission details will be
on the conference website.

We remark that XVI ECG will have neither formally reviewed proceedings nor
printed abstracts. The abstracts, without ISBN, will be made available
on the
conference website (appendices excluded), and must be regarded as a
of preprints rather than a formally reviewed selection of papers.

Papers that have just been submitted to journals or to formally reviewed
conferences are eligible for being presented at XVI ECG, assuming that it is
allowed by those venues and they have not appeared by the time of the
conference. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their
papers at
the conference. Failure to do so will result in removal of the contribution
everywhere in the website.


Authors of selected contributions will be invited to submit a full
version of
their work to a special issue of the International Journal of Computational
Geometry and Applications.


Rooms have been reserved at three different university residences, at a
special rate. You will have the chance to book a room in one of them
when you
fill in the registration form.
Important: the number of rooms reserved is limited! The sooner you register,
the higher the chance to find a place at the residence of your choice. Once
all the rooms we have reserved are booked, attendants will have to search
accommodation by themselves. Registration and accommodation reservation will
open on March 23, 2015.
