                         Special Issue on

                        Shape Algorithmics

Submission deadline: 1 May 2002

Algorithmica is planning a special issue on algorithms for shape analysis.
Papers describing original research are solicited that deal with algorithmic
issues of the processing of sets of points, curves, regions, and volumes that
represent form information. Submissions addressing general methodological
issues and significant case studies in this area are especially welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   * shape representation
   * shape similarity measures
   * (weighted) point set matching
   * matching two (sets of) curves, regions, or volumes
   * skeletonization
   * shape decomposition
   * shape approximation
   * morphing
   * retrieval from a large collection
   * perception

In all cases, the algorithmic aspects are especially important (such as the
algorithm design, theoretical complexity, practical efficiency, algorithm

Important Dates:
   o Submission Deadline: May 1, 2002.
   o Acceptance Decision: by September 1, 2002.
   o Final Version Due: October 1, 2002

Electronic submission is preferred. Please email a PostScript or PDF file
