                            Call for Papers  
                   4th CGC Workshop on   
                        Computational Geometry  
     Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, October 15-16, 1999 


We are pleased to announce the fourth 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  
    I/O-scalable geometric algorithms
    Animation of geometric algorithms
    Computer graphics                
    Solid modeling                   
    Geographic information systems   
    Computational metrology          
    Graph drawing                    
    Experimental studies 
    Geometric data structures
    Implementation issues
    Computer vision
    Computer-aided design
    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 registration
fee of $75.

Invited speakers 
  To be Announced


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:

    Baltimore, MD 21218  

Submissions should arrive by  September 10, 1999. Authors will be
notified of acceptance by September 20, 1999.

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
