Fall 2003: Computational Geometry Program Directions

The European Graduate Program Combinatorics, Geometry, and Computation offers a Fall School on

Computational Geometry

October 2 to October 4, 2003

in Neustrelitz which is north of Berlin in the midst of Müritz National Park. The school is addressed to advanced undergraduate and graduate students of Mathematics or Computer Science who are interested in Computational Geometry and related areas. Basic knowledge in Discrete Mathematics and Algorithms is assumed. Students of other fields are welcome to apply if they have this prerequisite knowledge.

The program will be presented by the following lecturers:

Helmut Alt   (FU Berlin):   Geometric methods in shape comparison and matching
Tamal Dey   (The Ohio State University):   Computing Shapes and Their Features from Point Samples
Günter Rote   (FU Berlin) :   Pseudotriangulations in Computational Geometry
Gert Vegter   (University of Groningen):   Introduction to Computational Topology

In addition to the lectures, exercises will be solved in small groups and discussed later on. For a more detailed program click here.

The Fall School will take place in Neustrelitz in the midst of the beautiful Müritz National Park, an area north of Berlin with thousands of lakes.

Park Hotel Fasanerie
Karbe-Wagner-Str. 59
17235 Neustrelitz
Phone: ++49-3981-48900

The costs per participant are EURO 75,00 and include full board during the Fall School. The number of participants is limited to about 30.

At the same location during three days before the school the Annual Workshop 2003 (Sept. 29 to Oct. 1) of the European Graduate Program "Combinatorics, Geometry, and Computation" will take place, which brings together all members of the Graduate Program and invited guests presenting recent research work.

Participants of the Fall School may also attend the Annual Workshop in which case the participation fee for both events is EURO 150,00 including full board.
