[DMANET] FWCG 2016 Call for Papers

First Call for Papers and Participation FWCG 2016
The 26th Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry
City University of New York Graduate Center
New York, NY
Oct 27 - 28, 2016 (THURS/FRI)
info: *
Registration: FREE
Deadline for submissions: September 30, 2016 (midnight, AOE)

Conference Scope:
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 computational geometry and related topics, e.g.,

* Algorithmic methods in geometry and topology
* Sensor networks and network technologies
* I/O-scalable geometric algorithms
* Animation of geometric algorithms
* Computer graphics
* Solid modeling
* Geographic information systems
* Graph drawing
* Experimental studies
* Folding and unfolding
* Geometric data structures
* Implementation issues
* Robustness in geometric computations
* Geometric algorithms for machine learning
* Computer vision
* Robotics
* Computer-aided design
* Mesh generation
* Manufacturing applications of geometry
* Computational biology and geometric computations
* Practical Applications of Geometry

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. To promote a free
exchange of questions and research challenges, there will be an Open
Problem Session to present and discuss open problems. The workshop will
include invited speakers, eminent leaders in their respective fields who
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

Paper Submission:

Authors are invited to submit their abstracts for contributed talks through
Easychair, accessible via *
<>* soon.

Deadline: September 30, 2016 (midnight, AOE), with acceptance notification
by October 7.

Your abstracts should be two pages, pdf-files (not word-files), no page
numbers, preferably with 11pt font.

Because 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., SODA'2017, SoCG'2017) is allowed and encouraged; but please indicate
clearly with the submission if the work has already been presented/accepted
elsewhere. Contributed talk abstracts will be reviewed by the program
