Presented under the auspices of the Special Focus on Computational Geometry and Applications.

We are pleased to announce the twelfth in a series of annual fall workshops on Computational Geometry. This workshop series, founded initially under the sponsorship of the Mathematical Sciences Institute (MSI) at Stony Brook (with funding from the U. S. Army Research Office), has continued during 1996-1999 under the sponsorship of the Center for Geometric Computing, a collaborative center of Brown, Duke, and Johns Hopkins Universities, also funded by the U.S. Army Research Office. In 2000, the workshop returned to the campus of the University at Stony Brook. In 2001, it was held at Polytechnic University in Brooklyn. This year, as part of the DIMACS Special Focus on Computational Geometry and Applications, the workshop is being hosted and sponsored by DIMACS.

Scope and Format:

The aim of this workshop is to bring together students and researchers from academia and industry, to stimulate collaboration on problems of common interest arising in geometric computations. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

Algorithmic methods in geometry
Geometric data structures
Implementation issues
Computer graphics
Solid modeling
Geographic information systems
Applications to computational biology and chemistry
Computational metrology
Graph drawing
Experimental studies
Computer vision
Computer-aided design
Mesh generation
Manufacturing applications of geometry
I/O-scalable geometric algorithms
Animation of geometric algorithms

Following the tradition of the previous workshops on Computational Geometry, the format of the workshop will be informal, extending over 2 days, with several breaks scheduled for discussions. There will also be an Open Problem Session in order to promote a free exchange of questions and research challenges.
