Call for Papers
4th CGC Workshop on
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
Geographic information systems
Geometric data structures
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.
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 cs.jhu.edu. 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:
Department of Computer Science
Johns Hopkins University
224 NEB, 3400 N. Charles St.
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
Pankaj K. Agarwal (Duke University), Lars Arge (Duke University), Michael
