                         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 Science,  Brown 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.

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      * Experimental studies
 * I/O-scalable geometric algorithms    * Geometric data structures 
 * Animation of geometric algorithms    * Implementation issues
 * Computer graphics                    * Robustness
 * Solid modeling                       * Computer vision
 * Geographic information systems       * Robotics 
 * Computational metrology              * Computer-aided design
 * Graph drawing                        * 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.

Registration will be on-site, and will include the abstract booklet,
coffee breaks, lunches, and a reception. There will be a nominal
registration fee of $35.

Invited speakers

* Jadgish Chandra (U.S. Army Research Laboratory) 
* John Hughes (Brown University) 
* Joe Marks (Mitsubishi Electrical Research Laboratories) 
* Chee Yap (New York University) 


Authors are invited to submit abstracts for talks to be given at the
workshop. Please send an abstract (up to 2 pages) and a draft of a
paper (if you have one). E-mail submissions are encouraged; send to
cgc at Ideally, the abstract should be a PDF, PostScript,
or LaTeX, file, for ease in assembling the abstract booklet. Abstracts
can also be sent by regular mail to

    Roberto Tamassia 
    Department of Computer Science 
    Brown University 
    115 Waterman Street 
    Providence, RI 02912-1910

Submissions should arrive by September 10, 1998. Authors will be
notified of acceptance by September 18, 1997.

A booklet of abstracts will be distributed at the workshop and made
available electronically on the Web. There will be no formal
proceedings for this workshop, but selected papers will be invited to
a special issue of the journal "Computational Geometry: Theory and
Applications" (edited by Michael T. Goodrich).
