[DMANET] Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry - final CFP

Final Call for Papers
XVII Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry
Alicante, Spain, June 26th to 28th, 2017

The XVII Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry will be held on June
26th-28th, 2017, at the Faculty of Science, Universidad de Alicante,
Alicante, Spain. The main focus of this international conference is on
current topics in Discrete and Computational Geometry, including both
theoretical and applied results. This series of meetings started in
1990. 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
algorithms. 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.

Note on ACCOMMODATION: If you are interested in participating in the
XVII Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry, we would advise
to book your accommodation as soon as possible. Alicante is a very
touristic town, and the Meeting will take place at the beginning of
the summer. If you postpone booking the accommodation, it may
become difficult.

Important dates:
Paper submission deadline: April 5, 2017 (23:59, CET)
Notification of paper acceptance: May 12, 2017
Final versions due: May 25, 2017
Conference: June 26-28, 2017

Invited speakers
Nancy Amato, Texas A&M University
Jean Cardinal, Université Libre de Bruxelles
Martin Henk, Technische Universität Berlin

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 help for the reviewers and is
required when necessary to verify omitted proofs of critical claims.
Submission details are available at the paper submission section on
the website

We remark that XVII 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 XVII 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.
