CG Week 2022 will take place on June 7–10, 2022, anchored by the 38th International Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG). SoCG brings together a global community of researchers working on a large variety of topics that combine geometry, topology, algorithms, and applications.
To allow a broad audience to participate actively in the community's major scientific event, a series of half-day events will be organized throughout CG Week. Some of these events are workshops and minisymposia on topics related to all aspects of computational geometry and its applications. We invite proposals for events focusing on all topics of potential interest to the computational geometry community.
Typical events feature some number of invited speakers and/or contributed talks. Note that we encourage organizers to consider posting an open call for contributed talks, in addition to having specific invited speakers, in order to broaden CG Week participation and attendance. Workshop organizers are encouraged to start their workshop with an overview presentation of the state-of-the-art, accessible for the usual audience of CG Week, before featuring more specialized talks. Events may include other forms of presentations, such as software demos, panel discussions, industry forums, tutorials, posters, videos, implementation challenges, or artwork. Discussion among workshop participants is encouraged. CG Week workshops will have no formal proceedings. Optionally, the organizers may coordinate with journals to publish special issues, or arrange for other dissemination (via arXiv, webpages, or printed booklets, for example). We expect most events to last one morning or afternoon (3–4 hours), but some events may extend across two half-days.
CGWeek 2022 is planned as an in-person event in Berlin. Some allowances may be made for online participation by workshop participants, subject to the policies of CG Week as described on the conference registration page, which includes registering for the conference.
Possible topics include (in alphabetical order): algebraic methods, biology, cache-oblivious algorithms, chemistry, combinatorial geometry, computational photography, computational topology, computer graphics, computer vision, conformal geometry, differential geometry, folding/origami, games and puzzles, geographic information systems, geometric aspects of privacy, geometric software, geometry of graphs, geometry processing, high-dimensional geometric algorithms, implementation challenges, machine learning, manufacturing, massive data sets, mesh generation, motion planning, optimization, physical simulation, physics, real-world applications of CG, robotics, sensor networks, surface reconstruction, and visualization. For examples of previous CG Week workshops, please refer to the conference websites for 2012–2021, accessible from the Computational Geometry Pages.
We anticipate that CG Week workshops will be operated at low cost. In particular, CG Week does not have a budget to support invited workshop speakers, and workshop speakers are expected to register for CG Week. However, every workshop may apply to the CG Workshop chair (with final approval granted by local organizers), for one 1-day registration to be waived, provided they make a convincing argument that this benefit is essential to enable the corresponding person to attend. For example, this could be used to invite a local person who is not primarily in computational geometry or topology, and hence is unlikely to attend the rest of the conference. Moreover, workshop organizers may provide, from their own grants or from other sponsors, a budget for invited speakers. CG Week organizers will provide organizational assistance, including registration, meeting rooms at the CG Week venue, coffee breaks, wireless network, and a link to the web page of the event.
For planning purposes, prospective workshop organizers are requested (but not required) to notify the committee of their intent to submit a proposal by April 1, 2022.
Formal proposals should be submitted by email to the CG Week workshops chair David Mount (email@example.com), by April 15, 2022. Proposals should be brief (at most 3 typeset pages) and should include the following information:
|Mustafa Hajij, Hu Ding and Jeff M. Phillips||6th Workshop on Geometry and Machine Learning|
|Maarten Löffler and Ben Raichel||2nd International Workshop on Uncertainty in Computational Geometry|
|Claudia Landi, Daniela Giorgi, Ulderico Fugacci and Sara Scaramuccia||10th Annual Minisymposium on Computational Topology|
|Martin Balko and Pavel Valtr||CG Week workshop in combinatorial geometry|
