Animation of geometric algorithms
Geographic information systems
Geometric data structures
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.
Registration will be on-site, but please send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
