                               Special Issue of
                Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications

              CGAL - the Computational Geometry Algorithms Library

Submission deadline:  February 1, 2006

The international journal Computational Geometry: Theory and
Applications is planning a special issue on CGAL, the Computational
Geometry Algorithms Library. CGAL is an open source C++ library, see Its goal is to make the most important
methods developed in computational geometry available to users in
industry and academia, by providing easy access to robust and
generic geometric algorithms.

We solicit original research papers describing contributions to CGAL,
or applications critically using CGAL. Topics of interest include
implementations of known and new algorithms in computational geometry,
the design of generic software, algorithm engineering aspects, experimental
verification, and benchmarking.

Work describing contributions to CGAL should be related to existing
packages, or to new packages submitted to the CGAL editorial board.
Formally, acceptance is independent of the package reviewing process,
but the opinion of the editorial board will be a factor in the

Work describing applications should clearly state in which way
the application depends on CGAL, and why the usage of CGAL is
crucial for its functionality.

We ask for regular papers, not source code, not documentation. It is
expected that the paper provides a link to source code, and there may
be code fragments also in the paper to show how some functionality is
used or realized. Full versions of previous conference papers are

Important dates:
     * Submission Deadline: February 1, 2006
     * Acceptance Decision: July 1, 2006
     * Final version due: November 1, 2006

All efforts will be made to ensure timeliness of the special issue.
Please submit only if you are able to deliver the final version of
your accepted paper by the indicated date.

Electronic submission is preferred. Please email a PostScript or PDF
file of your manuscript together with a cover letter to either of the
two guest editors of this special issue:
