                      Call for Papers

                 16th Canadian Conference
                 on Computational Geometry
                    August 9-11, 2004
              Concordia University, Montreal




The Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry (CCCG) focuses on the
mathematics of discrete geometry from a computational point of view.
Abstracting and studying the geometry problems that underly important
applications of computing (such as geographic information systems,
computer-aided design, simulation, robotics, solid modeling, databases,
and graphics) leads not only to new mathematical results, but also to
improvements in these applications.

Despite its international following, CCCG maintains the informality of
a smaller workshop and attracts a large number of students.

Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit papers describing research of theoretical
and practical significance to computational geometry.  Electronic
submissions, in standard PostScript and not exceeding 4 pages length,
should be made from the conference web page.

Invited Speakers

Timothy Chan, University of Waterloo
Piotr Indyk, MIT
Marc van Kreveld, Utrecht University

Special Issue

The program committee will invite the authors of approximately 6 of
the accepted papers to submit a final version to a special issue of
International Journal on Computational Geometry and Applications.
These papers will go through a full refereeing process for the journal.
