The Twenty-First Annual Symposium on Computational Geometry, featuring
both theoretical and applied research and a video/multimedia review
will be held at the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) Area
della Ricerca di Pisa, Italy and will be co-organized by the National
Research Council of Italy and the University of Perugia.

The presentations include high-quality research papers on geometric
algorithms and data structures, implementations of geometric
algorithms, mathematical aspects of discrete and computational
geometry, and applications of computational geometry in computer
graphics, geometry processing, computer-aided design and
manufacturing, computational biology, geographic information systems,
medicine, robotics, sensor networks, database systems, and other

                  CALL FOR OPEN PROBLEMS (**due June 1**)

The Symposium will include an Open Problem Session on Monday, June 6,
5:20-6:20.  We encourage researchers to propose and present succinct,
clearly defined open research questions.  Authors should carefully
prepare a writeup of the proposed open problem (or a related small set
of open questions), utilizing at most 1 page, including necessary
definitions, background, relevance, and references.  Authors may refer
to The Open Problem Project (TOPP) webpage,, where many open problems are
already compiled, and selected submissions will be posted.

Open problem submissions should be submitted by email to Joe Mitchell
(jsbm at by ** June 1, 2005 ** in order to be included in
a printed summary to be distributed at the Open Problem Session.  An
updated summary of all open problems posed will also be available on
the conference web site after the conference.
