Nanning, China, September 11-14, 2018
In Memory of Wen-tsün Wu
CALL FOR PAPERS：ADG 2018
ADG is a forum dedicated to the exchange of ideas and views, to the
presentation of research results and progress, and to the demonstration
of software tools on the intersection between geometry, computation,
and automated reasoning. ADG organizes a workshop every two years.
The previous editions were held in Strasbourg (France) 2016, Coimbra
(Portugal) 2014, Edinburgh (UK) 2012, Munich (Germany) 2010, Shanghai
(China) 2008, Pontevedra (Spain) 2006, Gainesville (USA) 2004, Linz
(Austria) 2002, Zurich (Switzerland) 2000, Beijing (China) 1998, and
Toulouse (France) 1996.
The twelfth conference ADG 2018 will take place in Nanning, China, from
September 11 to September 14, 2018, in memory of Wen-tsün Wu, founder
of the Chinese school of mathematics mechanization.
Aim and Scope
ADG 2018 aims at gathering researchers, engineers, and others interested
in exploring methods for automated reasoning and symbolic computation in
geometry, to discuss theoretical and practical challenges, and to present
recent research progress and results dedicated (not exhausted) in
- polynomial algebra, invariant and coordinate-free methods, probabilistic,
synthetic, and logic approaches, techniques for automated geometric
reasoning from discrete mathematics, combinatorics, and numerics;
- symbolic and numeric methods for geometric computation, geometric constraint
solving, automated generation/reasoning and manipulation with diagrams;
- design and implementation of geometry software, special-purpose tools,
automated theorem provers, experimental studies;
- applications of ADG to mechanics, geometric modeling, CAGD/CAD, computer
vision, robotics, and education.
- Deadline for extended abstract/full paper submission May 25, 2018
- Notification on all papers July 15, 2018
- Camera-ready submission July 31, 2018
- Early registration deadline August 1, 2018
- Conference taking place September 11-14, 2018
Original research papers in English, including experimental work and
work in progress, are welcome. The following two types of submissions
(1) Full paper: maximum 20 pages
(2) Extended abstract addressing the following aspects explicitly:
- Problem: what is the problem/question/objective?
- Motivation: why do we work on the problem and what is the importance?
- State of the art: what has been done already on the problem?
- Contribution: what is the main original contribution?
- Main idea: what is the main idea underlying the contribution?
Submissions should follow the standard Springer LNCS Proceedings format.
Electronic submission as PDF is required via EasyChair at
If you have any problem with the submission of your paper, or questions
concerning ADG 2018 or EasyChair, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
At least one author of each accepted submission must register at ADG 2018.
Refereeing and Publication
The submitted contributions will be subject to a summary review by the Program
Committee, bearing in mind that this first review is mainly for presentation,
NOT for publication. Digital publication of the full papers/extended abstracts
accepted for presentation will be available at the conference. The authors of the
full papers/extended abstracts accepted for presentation at the conference will be
invited to submit their full and/or revised papers for publication in a formal
proceedings of ADG 2018 after the conference. The full papers (submitted after the
conference) will be formally reviewed by PC members and external referees. All
participants are encouraged to bring along posters on their work (irrespective
of whether it was presented at the conference or not) for display during ADG 2018.
The accepted full papers will be published as a special issue of some journal or
in the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series or Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The proceedings of ADG 1996, ADG 1998,
ADG 2000, ADG 2002, ADG 2004, ADG 2006, ADG 2010, ADG 2012, and ADG 2014 appeared
as LNAI 1360, LNAI 1669, LNAI 2061, LNAI 2930, LNAI 3763, LNAI 4869, LNCS 6877,
LNAI 7993, and LNAI 9201, respectively.
