3rd CGC Workshop on 
Computational Geometry

October 11-12, 1998 
Brown University, Providence, RI

Sponsored by 
The Center for Geometric Computing 
The Department of Computer ScienceBrown University

We are pleased to announce the third annual fall Workshop on Computational Geometry, sponsored by the Center for Geometric Computing, continuing a tradition established by the Mathematical Sciences Institute at SUNY-Stony Brook. The Center for Geometric Computing is a collaborative center of Brown, Duke, and Johns Hopkins Universities, and is funded by the U.S. Army Research Office.

The workshop will be held in the Center for Information Technology (CIT) at Brown University. The Computer Science Department occupies the 4th and 5th floors of the building. (directions to the CIT)

Scope and Format

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia, industry, and the Army 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 
  • I/O-scalable geometric algorithms 
  • Animation of geometric algorithms 
  • Computer graphics 
  • Solid modeling 
  • Geographic information systems 
  • Computational metrology
  • Graph drawing
  • Experimental studies
  • Geometric data structures 
  • Implementation issues
  • Robustness 
  • Computer vision 
  • Robotics 
  • Computer-aided design 
  • Mesh generation 

Following the tradition of the previous MSI and CGC Workshops on Computational Geometry, the format of the workshop will be informal, extending over 2 days, with several breaks scheduled for discussions.
