   Very large polyhedral models, which are used in more and more in
   graphics applications today, are routinely generated by a variety
   of methods such as surface reconstruction algorithms from 3D
   scanned data, iso-surface construction algorithms from volumetric
   data, and photogrametric methods from aerial photography. The
   special issue will focus on methods designed to smooth, denoise,
   edit, compress, transmit, and animate very large polygonal meshes,
   based on signal processing techniques, constrained energy
   minimization, and the solution of diffusion differential equations.

   Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Representation and operations on large polygonal meshes
   - Connectivity operators
   - Geometry operators
   - Linear and non-linear Smoothing techniques
   - Filtering of normal and tensor fields
   - Anisotropic diffusion on meshes
   - Mesh sampling rate conversion / resampling
   - Curvature-based resampling
   - Fourier analysis on meshes and linear filter design
   - Mesh fairing by constrained energy minimization
   - Mesh fairing by solving PDEs
   - Multiresolution representations, editing, and smoothing
   - Applications to subdivision surfaces
   - Applications to 3D geometry compression / progressive transmission
   - Dynamic meshes

   Prospective authors are encouraged to submit high quality, original
   works which have not appeared, nor are under consideration, in any
   other journals.
