Workshop on Geometric Computing

Nov 12-14, IIT Delhi

The field of geometric computing  is concerned with the design, analysis, and implementation of algorithms for geometric problems, which arise in a wide range of areas, including computer graphics, CAD, robotics computer vision, image processing, spatial databases, GIS, molecular biology, and sensor networks. Since the mid 1980s, computational geometry has arisen as an independent field, with its own international conferences and journals.

In the early years mostly theoretical foundations of geometric algorithms were laid and fundamental research remains an important issue in the field. Meanwhile, as the field matured,  applications and implementations of geometric algorithms have also received much attention. Several software libraries for geometric computation (e.g. LEDA, CGAL, CORE) have been developed, and there are close connections between geometric computing and related application fields.

The workshop brings together leading researchers in the field of geometric computing with diverse backgrounds. The emphasis of the seminar will be on presenting recent developments in the field as well as identifying new challenges, and it will cover both theoretical and practical issues in geometric computing.
