              14th Annual Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry
                              November 19-20, 2004

                     Massachusetts Institute of Technology
                    Room 141, Building 32, The Stata Center
                                32 Vassar Street
                              Cambridge, MA 02139


  Sponsored by the National Science Foundation (pending).

  The aim of this workshop is to bring together students and researchers
  from academia and industry, to stimulate collaboration on problems of
  common interest arising in geometric computations.  Topics to be covered
  include, but are not limited to:

  Algorithmic methods in geometry
  I/O-scalable geometric algorithms
  Animation of geometric algorithms
  Computer graphics
  Solid modeling
  Geographic information systems
  Computational metrology
  Graph drawing
  Experimental studies
  Folding and unfolding
  Geometric data structures
  Implementation issues
  Robustness in geometric computations
  Computer vision
  Computer-aided design
  Mesh generation
  Manufacturing applications of geometry
  Computational biology and geometric computations

  Following the tradition of the previous Fall Workshops on
  Computational Geometry, the format of the workshop will be informal,
  extending over 2 days, with several breaks scheduled for discussions.
  To promote a free exchange of questions and research challenges, there will
  be a special focus on Open Problems, with a presentation on
  The Open Problems Project, as well as an Open Problem Session to present
  new open problems.  Submissions are strongly encouraged to include
  stand-alone open problems, which will be collected into a separate webpage
  and considered for inclusion in The Open Problems Project.

  As invited speakers, we expect to have 3-4 eminent leaders in their
  respective fields who have witnessed first-hand the need for geometric 
  computing and its applications.  We hope that the interaction with the
  computational geometry community will be stimulating both to computational
  geometers and to those involved in applying techniques of computational
  geometry to other disciplines.

  Authors are invited to submit abstracts for talks to be given at the
  workshop.  Please send an abstract (up to 2 pages) and a draft of a
  paper (if you have one).  (Because there are no formal proceedings for the
  workshop, submission of material that is to be submitted to (or to
  appear in) a refereed conference (e.g., SoCG'05) is allowed and
  encouraged.)  E-mail submissions are encouraged; send to
  cgworkshop at Ideally, the abstract should be a PDF,
  PostScript, LaTeX, or plain ASCII text file, for ease in assembling
  the abstract booklet.  Abstracts can also be sent by regular mail to:

  Submissions should arrive no later than October 19, 2004.
  Authors will be notified of acceptance by October 26, 2004.

  Deadline for submission: October 19, 2004
  Notification of acceptance: October 26, 2004

  This series of Fall Workshops on Computational Geometry was originally
  founded under the sponsorship of the Mathematical Sciences Institute
  (MSI) at Stony Brook (with funding from the U. S. Army Research Office)
  and held there from 1991 through 1995.  It continued during 1996-1999 under
  the sponsorship of the Center for Geometric Computing, a collaborative
  center of Brown, Duke, and Johns Hopkins Universities, also funded by the
  U.S. Army Research Office.  The workshop returned to Stony Brook for its
  tenth year, and then moved to Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY for
  its eleventh.  The twelfth workshop (2002) was part of the Special Focus
  on Computational Geometry and Applications at DIMACS, while the thirteenth
  (2003) was part of the the Mathematical Foundation of Geometric Algorithms,
  as part of the Special Semester on Computational Geometry at Mathematical
  Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley.  In 2004, we are proud to host the
  Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry at MIT, bringing the workshop to
  the Boston area for the first time and returning to the original format.
