At this five-day workshop, a group of 30-35 researchers will work on open problems in the area of discrete and computational geometry. The main focus of the workshop is in the design and analysis of algorithms and data structures to solve problems on geometric structures. The workshop poster can be found here.



Room 4351 (MacPhail Room) in the Herzberg Building (which is building HP on this map) at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.


Regular registration fee is 50 Canadian dollars (the payment is in cash and on-site). The registration is free for students and postdoctoral fellows. Students and postdoctoral fellows should register online by July 1, 2017.


This workshop will take five days. There will be two lectures per day held in the morning. The lectures will be of a survey/tutorial nature offering a state-of-the-art view of important topics in the field and related areas of mathematics with applications to geometric algorithms. Following this, each day will consist of open problems and work sessions. The workshop ends with a wrap-up session on Friday afternoon. The detailed program is available HERE.
