FWCG 2018 : Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry
Call For Papers
The aim of this workshop is to bring together students and researchers from academia and industry, to stimulate collaboration on problems of common interest arising in geometric computations. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
Issues in Geometric Algorithms:
)Animation of algorithms
Core geometric algorithm advances
) Graph drawing
) Folding and unfolding
) Topological data analysis
) Geometric data structures
) Computational conformal geometry
) Algorithmic methods in geometry and topology
Application of Geometric Algorithms
) Solid modeling
) Mesh generation
) Computer vision
) Machine learning
) Computer graphics
) Computer-aided design
) Computational biology
) Computational metrology
) Geographic information systems
) Sensor networks and network technology
Following the tradition of the previous Fall Workshops on Computational Geometry, the format of the workshop will be informal, extending over 2 days, with several breaks scheduled for discussions. The workshop is open to the public, with no registration fee.
There will be an Open Problem Session where participants are encouraged to pose and present research questions.

INVITED SPEAKERS: TBA
Authors are invited to submit abstracts (up to 4 pages, in any reasonable 1- or 2-column format) for contributed talks to be given at the workshop. Submission is via easychair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fwcg18). We encourage submissions of full paper drafts (if available) along with the abstract. Because there are no formal proceedings for the workshop, submission of material that is to be submitted to (or to appear in) a refereed conference (e.g., SODA'2019, SoCG'2019) is allowed and encouraged; please indicate clearly with the submission if the work has already been presented/accepted elsewhere. Contributed talk
abstracts, due by September 28, will be reviewed by the program committee, with notification by October 5.
Abstract submission: Friday, September 28, AOE.
Notification of acceptance: Friday, October 5.
Final abstracts due: Friday, October 12.
Registration (no fee): Friday, October 19.
Workshop: October 26-27 (Friday and Saturday).
