[DMANET] Call for papers: XVIII Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry

Second call for papers
XVIII Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry
Girona, Spain, July 1-3, 2019

- Submission server open! Deadline: April 10.
- Registration system also open!

The XVIII Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry (EGC) will be held
on July 1-3, 2019, at the auditorium of the Escola Politècnica Superior
of the University of Girona, Girona, 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 and topology;
- 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 science, multimedia and
animation, wireless communications, computer algebra, computational
topology, statistical analysis, operations research, computational
biology, etc.

The language of the conference is English, hence all international
colleagues are welcome to join.

- Carme Torras, Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial


New in this edition, we will accept two types of submissions:

1) Paper submissions

Each paper submission should consist of an extended abstract of up to 4
pages of original research. Authors are encouraged to add an appendix
with additional details, or even a full version of the paper, which will
be reviewed by the program committee at their discretion to verify
claims whose proofs do not fit in the 4-page abstract.

Papers that have recently been submitted to journals or other
conferences are eligible for submission to EGC, assuming that it is
allowed by those venues and they have not been published by the time of
the conference.

2) Talk submissions (new!)

Each talk submission should consist of an abstract of 1 page describing
original research presented in the proposed talk. This may involve
ongoing research or a result published recently (with the first
publication dated in 2018 or later). If the work has appeared
previously, please provide a reference to the publication.

Abstracts of accepted papers and talks will be collected in a booklet
that will be accessible from the conference website. No printed version
will be available. Presentations of accepted papers and talks will be
allocated the same amount of time in the program (approximately 15-25

All submissions (of both papers and talks) will be reviewed by the
program committee in order to guarantee that they are in scope and meet
quality standards.

Submission instructions will be available at the paper submission
section on the conference website.

Authors of accepted submissions are expected to present their work at
the conference. Failure to do so will result in removal of the
contribution from the abstract booklet and conference website.
