CCCG 2019

CCCG 2019

The 31st Canadian Conference in Computational Geometry

University of Alberta
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
August 8-10, 2019

University of Alberta

Statement of Purpose

The Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry (CCCG) is a forum to disseminate and discuss new theoretical and applied results in discrete and computational geometry. CCCG focuses on the design of efficient algorithms, the development of software, and the study of the mathematical foundations of computational problems whose formulations involve geometric constraints.

The field of computational geometry is motivated by problems from a broad range of application areas, as diverse as computer graphics and animation, computer vision, computer-aided design and manufacturing, geographic information systems, pattern recognition, wireless communications, robotics, protein folding, urban planning, graph drawing, or statistical analysis.

Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original research of theoretical or practical significance in computational, combinatorial and discrete geometry, as well as related areas. Submissions will be refereed by the Program Committee. Submissions should not exceed six pages, excluding references and appendices. Documents must be prepared using LaTeX; the appropriate template is available from the link below. Authors who feel that additional details are necessary should include a clearly marked appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the Program Committee.

Only electronic submissions via EasyChair (link below) will be accepted. Simultaneous submission to another conference or journal is not allowed. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the conference. Failure to do so will result in removal of the paper from the proceedings.

Proceedings will be published online. There will be no paper proceedings. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of the journal Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications.

Any submission that is authored only by students is eligible for the best young researcher award (paper & presentation).
