[DMANET] XVI Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry - Final Call for Papers

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

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, etc.

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

Final versions due: June 2

Early registration deadline: June 4

Conference: July 1-3, 2015

We invite authors to submit extended abstracts that should not exceed 4
pages 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 appendix can be added as a help for the reviewers and is required
when necessary to verify omitted proofs of critical claims. Submissions
will be made through EasyChair. Instructions for preparing the
manuscripts are available at 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 collection 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.


A number of registration grants for students are available, which will
be assigned in order of registration. Registration will open on March
23, 2015. Registered students will be notified about whether they
received the grant by June 10.


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. Detailed information about the residences is available
at the conference web page.
