[DMANET] EGC 2023: 2nd Call for papers (EXTENDED DEADLINES)

2nd Call for papers
XX Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry
Santiago de Compostela, Spain, July 3-5, 2023

(Apologies for multiple copies)

Dear Colleague,

We cordially invite you to join the XX Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry (EGC'23) which will take place from July 3 to 5, 2023, at Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, Santiago de Compostela, Spain. The core of this international conference is composed by the most current issues in the field of Discrete and Computational Geometry, both in its theoretical and applied aspects. The EGC began in 1990. The expected participation includes undergraduates, master students or doctoral students, researchers from the area or from closer disciplines, and professionals from companies and institutions whose work involves the use of 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.

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

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 2022 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. There will be a limited number
of printed booklets with ISBN. Presentations of accepted papers and talks will be allocated the same amount of time in the program (approximately 15-25 minutes).

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.
