Humble apologies to those of you who know already, and are sick of 
hearing about it.

                        12th Canadian Conference on
                           Computational Geometry
                         Fredericton, New Brunswick
                             August 16-19, 2000
                           Third Call for Papers
                               April 14, 2000
   Computational Geometry is a discipline concerned with algorithms,
   software, and mathematical foundations for the treatment of geometric
   data by computer. The Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry
   (CCCG) reflects this diversity of interest, with invited speakers and
   contributed papers on topics ranging from geometric applications in
   industry to the frontiers of pure mathematics. The technical program
   will be from August 16-18, with an optional outing on August 19.
                               Invited Speakers
     * Gil Kalai, Hebrew University of Jerusalem The Paul Erdos Memorial
       Lecture on Discrete Geometry
     * Naoki Kato, University of Kyoto Applications of Computational
       Geometry in Architecture
   Papers are solicited on both experimental and theoretical topics
   within computational geometry. An illustrative, but not exclusive list
   of topics follows:
     Applications of computational geometry
     Art gallery problems
     Discrete and combinatorial Geometry
     Geometric data structures
     Graph drawing
     Lower bounds for geometric problems
     Motion planning
     Robustness in geometric algorithms
   Authors should [1]submit a 4 page extended abstract (in English or
   French) by the submission deadline given below. Accepted papers will
   be allocated approximately twenty minutes for presentation at the
   The preferred method of submission is electronic; PostScript (TM) or
   PDF (TM) files will be accepted via the conference web site
   [2]conference web site. If you are unable to submit electronically,
   please ensure a paper copy of your extended abstract reaches

                                 Special Issue
   The program committee will invite the authors of approximately 6 of
   the accepted papers to submit a final version to a special issue of
   Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications. These papers will go
   through a full refereeing process for the journal, but have the
   advantage of relatively speedy publication.
          Extended abstracts due. Note: Deadline extended.

   Brunswick from August 16 to August 19 of 2000. The technical program
   will take place August 16-18, with an optional excursion on August 19.
