            12th Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry
	             Fredericton, New Brunswick
                          August 16-19, 2000

                         First Call for Papers


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.

Invited Speakers

	- Gil Kalai, Hebrew University of Jerusalem (to be confirmed)
	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 
	- 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 submit a 4 page extended abstract by the submission
deadline given below. Accepted papers will be allocated approximately
twenty minutes for presentation at the conference.

The preferred method of submission is electronic; details will be
available on the conference web site (
closer to the deadline.  If you are unable to submit electronically,
please ensure a paper copy of your extended abstract reaches

	Canadian Conference for Computational Geometry
	c/o David Bremner
	Faculty of Computer Science
	University of New Brunswick
	P.O. Box 4400
	Fredericton, NB
	E3B 5A3

by the submission deadline.

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.


2000/04/14	Extended abstracts due
2000/06/01	Notification of acceptence or rejection
2000/07/03	Proceedings version of the paper due
2000/08/01	Special issue papers due

Location and Dates

CCCG 2000 will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Fredericton, New
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.
