At this five-day workshop, a group of 40-45 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.
The organizers are Ahmad Biniaz, Prosenjit Bose, Jean-Lou De Carufel, Vida Dujmović, Anil Maheshwari, Pat Morin, Michiel Smid, and Sander Verdonschot.
Room 4351 (MacPhail Room) in the Herzberg Building (which is building HP on this map) at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.
The registration deadline is July 1, 2017. Registration is now open, and you can register online. The regular registration fee is 50 Canadian Dollars, however the registration is free for students and postdoctoral fellows.
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.
