The best paper award of SocG 2022 goes to Daniel Rutschmann and Manuel Wettstein for their paper Chains, Koch Chains, and Point Sets with many Triangulations. The paper is available here.
The Best Student Presentation Award of SoCG 2022 goes to Paul Jungeblut for his presentation on the paper The Complexity of the Hausdorff Distance with Linda Kleist and Tillmann Miltzow. The paper is available here.
The SoCG Test of Time Award 2022 goes to Helmut Alt and Michael Godau for their paper Measuring the resemblance of polygonal curves (proceedings version: [doi]; journal version: [doi]) and to Jiří Matoušek for his paper Efficient partition trees (proceedings version: [doi]; journal version: [doi]).
The awards will be presented in a special session on the last day of CG Week 2022.
The SoCG Test of Time Award, instated two years ago, recognizes papers published at the Proceedings of the Annual Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG). An award will be given to a paper published in SoCG no later than 2002. More than one paper may be selected for the award.
Anyone in the computational geometry community may nominate a paper by submitting the nomination via e-mail to email@example.com with a subject line of SoCG Test of Time Award. The nomination should contain a brief explanation of the impact of the nominated paper(s). The deadline for submitting the nomination is January 31, 2022.
The winners are selected by a committee appointed by the SoCG steering committee and for 2022 it consists of Pankaj K. Agarwal (Duke University, USA), Dan Halperin (Tel Aviv University, Israel), and Raimund Seidel (Saarland University, Germany).
In selecting the Test of Time Award, the Committee will pay particular attention to long term impact. This impact can come in many forms and some possibilities are to: (i) open up a new area of research; (ii) introduce new techniques; (iii) solve a problem of lasting importance. The selection will be announced by March 15, 2022.
This is the third SoCG Test of Time Award and it will be an annual award; the winners of the first two awards can be found at https://computational-geometry.org/Awards/SoCG_Test_of_Time.html. The 2022 award winners will be presented at CG Week 2022, to be held in Berlin, Germany, June 7–10, 2022.
