                    October 27--28, 2000

We are pleased to announce the tenth in a series of annual fall
workshops on Computational Geometry.  This workshop series, founded
under the sponsorship of the Mathematical Sciences Institute (MSI) at
Stony Brook (with funding from the U.S. Army Research Office), has
continued during 1996-1999 under the sponsorship of the Center for
Geometric Computing, a collaborative center of Brown, Duke, and Johns
Hopkins Universities, also funded by the U.S. Army Research Office.

This year, for the tenth in the workshop series, the workshop
returns to the campus of the University at Stony Brook.

Scope and Format

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:

    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
    Manufacturing applications of geometry

Following the tradition of the previous workshops on Computational
Geometry, the format of the workshop will be informal, extending over
2 days, with several breaks scheduled for discussions.
There will also be an Open Problem Session in order to promote
a free exchange of questions and research challenges.

We strongly encourage registration in advance, through the workshop
web site; registration can also be completed on-site.  There will be
no registration fee.

Students are especially encouraged to attend and participate!  We
expect to be able to provide free accommodations (couch space, floor
space, etc.) for visiting students with some of Stony Brook's local
graduate student hosts who are taking part in the organization.

Invited speakers

To be Announced  (Confirmed so far: George Hart, Micha Sharir, Ileana Streinu)


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
cgworkshop 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:
    Joseph Mitchell
    Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics
    University at Stony Brook
    Stony Brook, NY 11794-3600

Submissions should arrive by October 3, 2000. Authors will be
notified of acceptance by October 10, 2000.

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.
