CCCG 2011 : The 23rd Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry
Conference Series : Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry
Call For Papers
Conference announcement: call for papers
23rd CANADIAN CONFERENCE ON COMPUTATIONAL GEOMETRY (CCCG 2011)
August 10-12, 2011, Toronto, Canada
CCCG will be held in cooperation with the Fields Institute, as part of the Fields
Thematic Program on Discrete Geometry and Applications. The conference site will be
at Fields and the adjacent campus of the University of Toronto.
This year it is expected that student registration fees will be reimbursed.
See website for details and updates.
CCCG focuses on the design of efficient algorithms, the development of software, and
the study of the mathematical foundations of computational problems whose formulations
involve geometric constraints. The field of computational geometry is motivated by
problems from a broad range of application areas, as diverse as computer graphics and
animation, computer vision, computer-aided design and manufacturing, geographic
information systems, pattern recognition, wireless communications, robotics, protein
folding, urban planning, graph drawing, or statistical analysis to name just a few.
Authors are invited to submit papers describing original research of theoretical or
practical significance in computational, combinatorial and discrete geometry, as well
as related areas.
CCCG is an international forum, accessible to a broad community of researchers, to
disseminate and discuss new theoretical and applied results in discrete and computational
geometry. The intended audience for this conference includes graduate and undergraduate
students, researchers in the area, and members of industry whose work involves geometric
Submissions should not exceed six pages, must be submitted electronically, and must be
prepared using LaTeX; the appropriate template is available from the conference website.
Authors who feel that additional details are necessary should include a clearly marked
appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the Program Committee. Each submission
will be refereed by at least three members of the Program Committee.
Details on the submission procedure are outlined on the conference website. Six-page
papers accepted at CCCG will appear in the printed proceedings of the conference.
Electronic proceedings without page limits will be hosted at http://cccg.ca
Selected papers from the conference will be invited for submission to a special issue
of the journal Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications.
