                      First CGAL User Workshop


The CGAL Consortium is organizing the first CGAL User Workshop, to be held on 
June 4, 2002 immediately before the ACM Symposium on Computational Geometry
in Barcelona, Spain.  

The goal of this one-day workshop is twofold: to allow CGAL users and 
developers to meet and share their experiences with the library while at 
the same time providing an opportunity for potential users to learn more 
about CGAL and how they might benefit from it.

The day will be organized around a series of short (30-minute) 
presentations by users and developers.  The topics to be discussed 
include but are not limited to:

  - design of library components
  - implementation of algorithms and data structures using CGAL
  - use of the library in experimentation 
  - experiences with CGAL in teaching
  - comparisons of CGAL with other libraries.

At the end of the day, we will have an extensive Q&A session.

The focus of the meeting is not CGAL, but the users. If you have
any suggestions about what should be discussed, please send a message 
to editor at cgal.org so we can do our best to organize the workshop to 
meet your needs.

Abstract Submission

If you are a CGAL user and would like to present your work, we invite 
you to submit an abstract (in PostScript or PDF) to the 
CGAL Editorial Board by filling out the form on 
The work need not be original for this workshop.  The board will select 
presentations so as to achieve a balanced programme of general interest 
to other users and developers.

Important Dates

February  15, 2002: Abstract submission deadline 
     March 1, 2002: Notification of acceptance or rejection
      June 4, 2002: Workshop

Registration and Accommodation

You can register for the workshop when you register for SoCG'02.  There is no
separate registration system.  Should you wish to participate only
in the workshop, please check the appropriate box on the symposium registration
form (available approximately Feb. 15).

There will be a separate and modest registration fee for the workshop. 
The payment of this fee will be done on-site. Only cash in Euro will be 
accepted (a bank on campus will be available just in front of the conference 

You can use the SoCG'02 accommodation booking system
(http://www-ma2.upc.es/~geomc/events/socg2002/socg2002.html), if you wish, 
even if you intent to attend only the workshop.

About CGAL

CGAL, the Computational Geometry Algorithm Library, is a highly modular 
C++ library of data structures and algorithms that has been developed via 
a collaborative project involving several research institutes
in Europe and Israel. The mission of the project is to make the 
most important solutions and methods developed in computational
geometry available to users in industry and academia.

For more information about the project and the library, please have
a look at the CGAL web site (http://www.cgal.org).
