Workshop Description

The Workshop, held for the third year in a row in conjunction with the
International Conference on Computational Science, is intended as an
international forum  for researchers in all areas of computational geometry.
Submissions of papers presenting a high-quality original research are
invited to one of the two Workshop tracks: 
 - theoretical computational geometry
 - implementation issues and applied computational geometry.

Topics of interest:

- Algorithmic methods in geometry
- Animation of geometric algorithms 
- Lower bounds and algorithm complexity
- Solid modeling 
- Geographic information systems 
- Computational methodology 
- Computer graphics and image processing 
- Illumination problems
- Visibility graphs
- Space Partitioning
- Data structures (including Voronoi Diagrams and Delaunay triangulations)
- Geometric computations in parallel and distributed environments
- Mesh generation
- Interpolation and surface reconstruction
- Spatial and terrain analysis
- Computer graphics and image processing 
- Computational methods in manufacturing
- Applications in molecular biology, granular mechanics,
computational physics, oceanography
- Exact computations
- Robotics
- Path planning
- Algorithm Implementation

Submissions in other related areas will also be considered.
The design and implementation of geometric algorithms in parallel and
distributed environments, exact computations, and applications in mechanics,
physics and biology, are of special interest.


Proceedings of the Workshop will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The proceedings will also be
available separately for purchase from Springer-Verlag (proceedings of the
previous Workshops on Computational Geometry and Applications appeared in
LNCS vol. 2073, vol. 2329-2331). 

Papers from the Workshop may be invited to special issues of International
Journal of Computational Geometry and Applications, Journal of CAD/CAM,
Journal of Computational Methods in Sciences and Engineering (JCMSE) and the
Journal of Supercomputing (pending agreement).

Best Student Paper Award and Travel Grant

This year, a best student paper will be selected for a Best Student Paper
Award. This award will be available exclusively to CGA'03 participants. A
paper is eligible if at least one of its authors is a full or part-time
student at the time of submission. 

Author of the paper submitted to CGA'03 will be also eligible to apply for
Travel Grant, provided by ICCSA'03 sponsors. The ICCSA'03 program committee
may decline to make the award, or may split it among more than one

Available Financial Assistance

Author of the paper submitted to CGA'03 will be automatically eligible for
assistance, if he belongs to Canadian University, educational institution,
government agency or industry. Students enrolled at Canadian institutions
are also eligible for a discount of registration fees.
Paper Submission

Conference fees
For all details with respect to the conference fees see  Special discounts for students and
participants from some academia/research institutions are available. For
more information, please visit the Workshop web site.


We invite you to submit a draft of the paper of up to 10 pages (Letter or
A4) paper. Please include a cover page (in ascii format) which lists the
- Title of the paper
-  List of authors
- name, affiliation, address and e-mail address of each author
- name of the contact author
- preferred track (theoretical or applied track)
- a maximum of 5 keywords
- intent to be considered for the Best Student Paper Award (exclusively for
CGA'03 participants)
- intent to apply for Travel Grant (available for all ICCSA'03 participants)

The submission must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of
LNCS. Electronic submissions in PS, PDF, or LaTex (please also submit all
.eps, .dvi, and .ps files). MS Word submissions will also be accepted.
