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:

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 triangulations)
- 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 areas
- 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, vol 3480). 

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 2006.

Conference fees
