[DMANET] Call for talks/abstracts: 27th Annual Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry (FWCG 2017)

27th Annual Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry
November 3-4, 2017
Stony Brook University

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, but are not limited to:

Algorithmic methods in geometry and topology
Machine learning
Topological data analysis
Sensor networks and network technologies
I/O-scalable geometric algorithms
Animation of geometric algorithms
Computer graphics
Solid modeling
Geographic information systems
Computational metrology
Graph drawing
Experimental studies
Folding and unfolding
Geometric data structures
Implementation issues
Robustness in geometric computations
Computer vision
Computer-aided design
Mesh generation
Manufacturing applications of geometry
Computational biology and geometric computations
Computational conformal 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.
The workshop is open to the public, with no registration fee.
There will be an Open Problem Session where participants are encouraged
to pose and present research questions.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts (up to 4 pages, in any
reasonable 1- or 2-column format) for contributed talks to be given at
the workshop. Submission is via easychair
( We encourage
submissions of full paper drafts (if available) along with the
abstract. 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'2018, SoCG'2018) is allowed and
encouraged; please indicate clearly with the submission if the work
has already been presented/accepted elsewhere. Contributed talk
abstracts, due by Friday, October 6, will be reviewed by the program
committee, with notification by Friday, October 13.

Abstract submission: Friday October 6, 2017
Notification of acceptance: Friday October 13, 2017
Final abstracts due: Friday October 27, 2017
Registration (no fee): Monday October 30, 2017
Workshop: Fri-Sat November 3-4, 2017
