Workshop Description

The Workshop, held for the fourth year in a row in conjunction with the
International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications,
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
- 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

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'04
participants. A paper is eligible if at least one of its authors is a
full or part-time student at the time of submission. 

Conference fees
For all details with respect to the conference fees please consult the
ICCSA 2004 web page. 

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 following:
- 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

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
