[DMANET] CFP: FWCG'18 (28th Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry)

First Call for Papers and Participation FWCG 2018
The 28th Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry
Queens College, City University of New York, Flushing, NY
Oct 26 - 27, 2018 (Friday/Saturday)
Deadline for submissions: September 28, 2018 (AOE)

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:

Issues in Geometric Algorithms

> Robustness

> I/O-scalability

> Experimental studies

> Practical implementation

> Animation of algorithms

Core geometric algorithm advances

> Graph drawing

> Folding and unfolding

> Topological data analysis

> Geometric data structures

> Computational conformal geometry

> Algorithmic methods in geometry and topology

Application of Geometric Algorithms

> Robotics

> Manufacturing

> Solid modeling

> Mesh generation

> Computer vision

> Machine learning

> Computer graphics

> Computer-aided design

> Computational biology

> Computational metrology

> Geographic information systems

> Sensor networks and network technology

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'2019, SoCG'2019) is allowed and

encouraged; please indicate clearly with the submission if the work

has already been presented/accepted elsewhere. Contributed talk

abstracts, due by September 28, will be reviewed by the program

committee, with notification by October 5.


Abstract submission: Friday, September 28, AOE.

Notification of acceptance: Friday, October 5.

Final abstracts due: Friday, October 12.

Registration (no fee): Friday, October 19.

Workshop: October 26-27 (Friday and Saturday).


Registration is free but required. Please fill out the following form
