Call for Papers

26th Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry (CCCG 2014)

August 11-13, 2014, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

The 26th Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on August 11-13, 2014.

Scope

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, to name just a few. 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.

Audience

CCCG is an international forum, accessible to a broad community of researchers, to disseminate and discuss new theoretical and applied results in discrete and computational geometry. The intended audience for this conference includes graduate and undergraduate students, researchers in the area, and members of industry whose work involves geometric computation.

Submission Details

Submissions should not exceed six pages, must be submitted electronically, and must be prepared using LaTeX. The appropriate template is available here. 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. Submission details are available on the conference website. Simultaneous submission to another conference or journal is not allowed. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the conference. Failure to do so will result in removal of the paper from the proceedings.

Proceedings

Proceedings will be published online here. There is no page limit for papers published in the proceedings.

Special Issue

Selected papers from the conference will be invited for submission to a special issue of the journal Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications.

Student Support

CCCG has a tradition of being welcoming to students. It is expected that there will be partial travel support for students and postdocs.
