Title: "Algorithmic Robot Motion Planning"

Workshop Description

The Workshop, held for the fifth Consecutive year 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 and related areas, with the goal of advancing the
state of research in computational geometry and related disciplines.
Submissions of papers presenting a high-quality original research are
invited to one of the two Workshop tracks: 

 - theoretical computational geometry
 - applied computational geometry.

This year focus is on Computational Geometry and Bioinformatics. Issues of
numerical performance of geometric algorithms are also of specific interest.

Tutorials and Discussion Session can be offered at the workshop. If you wish
to propose tutorial or discussion session, please send a brief proposal to:

cga05 at

Topics of interest:

- Design and analysis of geometric algorithms
- Animation of geometric algorithms 
- Computational methodology 
- Geometric algorithms in computer graphics 
- Geometric data structures (including Voronoi Diagrams and Delaunay
- Geometric computations in parallel and distributed environments
- Geometric data structures for mesh generation
- Geometric algorithms in spatial and terrain analysis
- Computational methods in bioinformatics
- Geometric applications in computational biology, physics, chemistry,
geography,  cartography, robotics, games, GIS, medicine and other related
- Solid modeling
- Space partitioning
- Interpolation and surface reconstruction
- Path planning
- Computer graphics algorithms 
- Numerical precision
- Implementation issues and optimization
- Related topics 

Submissions in other related areas will also be considered.

The design and implementation of geometric algorithms in parallel and
distributed environments, and applications in biology, biometrics, physics,
GIS and computer graphics 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, vol. 3044-3046). 

Papers from the previous CGA Workshops have appeared in the 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.

Future Special Issues in the above journals are being planned for 2005.

Best Student Paper Award 

This year, a best student paper will be selected for a Best Student Paper
Award. This award will be available exclusively to CGA'05 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
2005 web page. 

Special discounts for students and session organizers is available. For more
information, please visit the ICCSA 2005 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) as a SEPARATE file
which lists the following:

- Title of the paper
- List of authors
- E-mail addresses of each author
- Name, affiliation, address and e-mail address of 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'05 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. 

Please submit your paper directly to:
